Many people come to the Southern Oxfordshire area because of its Midsomer Murders connections. The beautiful rural landscapes of the region seem to strike a chord with people all over the UK, and the world. And what better place to stay than in the heart of Midsomer itself?
The Peacock Inn, in Henton, offers guests a Midsomer Murders package (and by that we don’t mean that one of your party gets bumped off in grizzly fashion leaving you to solve the case). Rather, what it does mean is that you get to stay in charming, comfortable accommodation just minutes from some of the most popular filming locations of the show.
The Peacock Inn – Midsomer ConnectionsThe Peacock Inn is also home to the Midsomer Murders Society, which further strengthens its Midsomer connections. Thame is just a ten-minute drive away, with Thame town hall doubling up as Causton in the show. Chinnor station is also close, and you may recognise it from the Death in a Chocolate Box episode. The tailors, featured as ‘Woodly & Woodly’ in the Made to Measure Murders is just a regular village shop just five minutes from The Peacock. You’ll also be within touching distance of the Midsomer walking trails.
The Midsomer Murders special is £45 per person, based on two people sharing a twin or double room. This includes breakfast and a copy of Midsomer on Location, which is essential reading for anyone in the area to see the sights of the show.
