Murder mysteries in Dorset

Dorset is a mere 30 minutes from many of our performers, so we have a lot of local knowledge to help you find venues in the county. The region has a fine mix of hotels, castles coastlines and scenery, with sites such as Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle, Brownsea Island and Kingston Lacey. Bournemouth is popular with hen parties.
Much of Dorset is designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its unspoilt beaches, rolling hills and historic links. Tourism is an important industry - in terms of nights spent by visitors Dorset is the third most popular county in the country, and second for visitor spending.
