What to expect from our murder mystery Christmas party nights…

About the venue

Enter the world of Sherlock Holmes at the fantastic DoubleTree by Hilton Tower of London this Christmas. This 4 star venue is situated in a great location, only 5 minutes on foot from the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and The City. The hotel also has good transport links from both Tower Hill tube station and Fenchurch Street rail station. If you fancy meeting up for a cocktail before the event then we’d highly recommend Savage Garden, the hotel’s rooftop bar and outdoor terrace.

About the murder mystery

Sherlock Holmes murder mystery – News of a murder comes through and the drama unfolds while you and your guests enjoy a delicious three course Christmas dinner. The action is fast and furious so you’ll have to be on your toes to unravel the mystery and claim your prize as the best detective. These are interactive events with guests invited examine clues, listen to live suspect testimonies, quiz the actors and work in teams to uncover the murderer. 

Choice of dining rooms  – In the shared dining room, your group will be allocated their own tables and compete against other teams. You’ll be involved in solving the mystery but all of the suspect roles will be played by our professional actors. Alternatively, you may wish to opt for a private dining room where we supply a detective and your group members play the part of suspects. Contact us to discuss the private dining option further (a supplement may apply depending on your group size).
