The Wimpole Murder Mystery: The Art of Murder

Mystery in History return to Wimpole Hall for their annual Murder Mystery with a brand new story, a brand new murder ... and some unexpected twists! See Wimpole Hall after hours and enjoy a three course meal in the Old Rectory Restaurant.

  • Booking essential

It is Friday 27th October 1797 William Dempsey, close friend of the 3rd Earl of Hardwicke, has returned from his Grand Tour, having acquired many great works of art. He has been asked to display some of the finest in the Long Gallery of Wimpole Hall and many distinguished people have been invited. But when so many artistic talents share the same room it is inevitable that rivalries quickly surface and long standing animosities come to the fore ... and who knows where jealousy may lead?
