An experience that encapsulates all that is Midsomer. Thankfully, the Midsomer Murders faced by Inspector Barnaby are fictional, but the villages and market towns seen in each episode are not.

The Midsomer Murders Tour will transport you into the charming yet sinister world familiar to DCI John and Tom Barnaby and uncover the real locations that have given the show its distinct character since it was first broadcast in 1997.

Humphreys of Henleys offers you exclusive access to the whole of Mid-somer – the towns and favourite (or most deadly) villages, the tea rooms and restaurants and some of the private locations not usually seen.

You can meet the locals who will happily share a tale or two of their life as an extra, or their experience of daily life with a film crew around.

Having enjoyed the river views from episodes such as ‘Dead in the Water’ and ‘The Animal Within’ you have the choice to view Midsomer from the luxury of a river cruise. Sit back, relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful stretches of the Thames that not only played host to Midsomer Regatta, but every year does play host to the world famous Henley Royal Regatta.

Sir Steve Redgrave, the Olympic rowing legend, can proudly boast of his performances in both the Midsomer and the Royal events.

Our visits are tailor made to your requirements. However, to make it a little easier (as there are a lot of locations to choose from) we have created a 1-day experience and a 2-day experience that you can use as a guide. If you choose to follow one of the attached routes, you are still able to make changes on the day itself, as it is your personal tour and your guide will be happy follow your suggestions.
