Midsomer Murders Walking Tours


Thame – a Major Midsomer Filming Location

Thame is one of the most frequently used filming locations for the popular ITV series, Midsomer Murders. The town regularly features, either as Causton, or as any one of the many villages in the fictional Midsomer County. Midsomer Murders is still going strong after 23 years with regular screenings, not only in the UK, but all over the world. Thame landmarks have been featured in different episodes over the years, including Thame Museum, the Town Hall, Market House, Rumsey’s Chocolaterie, the historic Swan and Spread Eagle Hotels, the Black Horse Pub and Brasserie, and several other locations.

Midsomer Walking Tour of Thame

The tour, led by our expert guides, starts outside Thame Town Hall (one of the locations) and ends at Thame Museum (another location)

The tour lasts around an hour and a quarter and costs £10.00 per person. Due to the Coronavirus restrictions currently in place, you can only buy tickets online. Tickets may be purchased for any of the  tours from Wednesday 14th April, until the 2021 season ends on Wednesday 27th  October. Please note that online bookings must be made by 5.00 pm on the Tuesday before each Wednesday tour. 

In accordance with Coronavirus regulations, a maximum of five participants can be booked onto a guided tour.

The tours will start at 2.00 pm and 2.05 pm. If you have any questions, please contact Tony Long at thamemidsomertours@gmail.com or call 07881 688895.
