A Murder Mystery Enthusiast's Dream: Carlton Court in Torquay

Since moving to Torquay, we have been discovering so much more about this wonderful area we now call home. One of the most fascinating facts is that the Queen of Crime herself, Agatha Christie, was born and lived here in her younger years, eventually making her holiday home at Greenway. Many of her inspirations came from the surrounding areas, including Cockington Village (think Miss Marple) and the poisonous plants housed at Torre Abbey, just to name a few.

Her legacy and inspiration should always be celebrated, which is why we envision Torquay, in the heart of the English Riviera, becoming the ‘home of the murder mystery’. And why not? This picturesque town is brimming with historical intrigue and scenic beauty, providing the perfect backdrop for any mystery enthusiast.

Through conversations with many locals and visitors alike, we've learned that murder mystery nights are incredibly popular. With that in mind, we want to put Carlton Court on the map as a premier destination to spend a weekend or overnight stay and be part of an unforgettable murder mystery event.

Being a boutique guest house, our events are designed to be intimate, accommodating only 10 guests, whether it's one group or a few couples. Our intention is to make these events as bespoke as possible, tailored specifically to your group. From the plot of the mystery to the food served, every detail will be meticulously crafted to ensure a unique and immersive experience.

Moreover, we aim to create comprehensive packages that include visits to other local attractions, all while Carlton Court provides your comfortable and charming accommodation. Imagine solving a thrilling mystery by night and exploring Agatha Christie's favourite haunts by day – an experience any murder mystery enthusiast would cherish.

So, pack your detective hat, gather your keenest friends, and get ready to unravel the secrets of Torquay with us at Carlton Court. Let the adventure begin!
