Murder Mysteries in Dorset

A quintessential English county, Dorset is sprinkled with charming villages, colourful heathlands, tranquil river valleys and a stunning rugged chalk-cliffed coast. Situated in the South West, Dorset has over 200 million years of history and is home to England’s first natural World Heritage site, the Jurassic Coast.

This magical landscape has charged the imagination of many artists throughout the ages and earned it’s name as ‘Thomas Hardy’ country. But pray, this idyllic haven does hide a sinister side! The sleepy town of Wimbourne Minster, East Dorset, was home to Montague John Druitt, a man thought to be none other than Jack the Ripper! A perfect location for a captivating murder mystery event we feel...
