Murder Mysteries in Manchester

Site of the world’s first railway station and home of exceptional scientific progress, Manchester is a true beacon of excellence in culture, music, engineering and sports. Born as a Roman fort in 79 AD, it’s fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south and the “backbone of England”, the Pennines to the north and east.

During the Industrial Revolution, historian Simon Schama noted that Manchester “was the very best and the very worst taken to terrifying extremes, a new kind of city in the world; the chimneys of industrial suburbs greeting you with columns of smoke". A mysterious yet thriving city, a blend of rich culture and modern technology, we love running our cryptic murder mystery evenings here.


We are betrayed... This mystery combines gadgets and espionage to create an experience that will leave you shaken and stirred.

The Game's Afoot! A traditional murder mystery evening with lords, ladies, maids and butlers... And Sherlock Holmes himself!

An offer you can't refuse... There's been a murder at the heart of the mob, if it isn't solved soon police are expecting total war!
