Special Events & Offers

At Yarnton Manor we regularly host special events open to all. 

Murder at the manor

Saturday 2nd March

7pm to 9:30PM

With a unique story created specifically for the Manor, you’ll be greeted by characters to set the scene for an evening of intrigue. The guest of honour will almost certainly fail to appear – what was their fate, and more importantly which of our suspects is to blame? Then follows an evening of discovered secrets, revealing relationships and murderous motives, all uncovered by you as you interrogate the suspects. Playing detective, you’ll investigate and come up with a solution… but will you guess correctly? Ending with a dramatic denouement, your unforgettable event is guaranteed to end with a bang!  

Tickets are £40 per person (plus booking fee). Groups bookings accepted. Not suitable for under 16s. Pre-booking essential at least 7 days in advance. Minimum numbers required to run. No drinks included. You are welcome to bring your own drinks.
 
Accommodation available from £50 per room per night for guests attending.
