War Tour Murder Mysteries
Do you enjoy a good murder mystery? Are you also interested in twentieth century military or social history? If so, you’ll probably enjoy one of our self- guided, war tour murder mysteries.
Set within historic cities can of the north-west, our tours offer you the opportunity to collect virtual evidence in a fictional murder mystery, within the streets of very real wartime cities. You’ll encounter characters from the first and second world wars, as storytelling is blended with real events, through the use of actors, sound effects and atmospheric music.
Our self-guided murder mysteries allow you to explore cities, in an immersive way, transporting you into the past and challenging your ingenuity and imagination.
Whilst respecting those real-life heroes serving abroad and living their daily lives on the home front, our app-based tours are designed to deliver both history and mystery.
