Murder Mysteries in Devon

This warm and welcoming county is situated in the centre of England’s beautiful West country. Overflowing with character, Devon is steeped in history and surrounded by a stunning mix of landscapes including spectacular cliffs, golden sandy beaches and wild moorlands. It was these wild moorlands where murder mystery writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle based his best known book The Hound of the Baskervilles.

The county is also home to two national parks, parts of the Jurassic coast and most spectacularly, the English Riviera. Starting at Torquay and finishing at Brixham, South Devon’s beautiful bay has been popular since Victorian times offering much more than just a seaside holiday! All this confirms Devon as the ultimate destination for a murder mystery night to remember!
