Death at Fawlty Towers – Murder Mystery Event

Sybil Strikes Back!

It is the night of Basil & Sybil’s 15th wedding anniversary and you have all been invited to the surprise party organised (in secret!) by Basil. All seems to be going to plan - Manuel is waiting on the tables – Terry, the new chef, is busy preparing the food, and entertainment has been arranged for the party of German guests staying at the hotel.

But things start to go wrong when Polly is late from her evening class, the new chef is found drunk and Sybil is convinced that Basil has forgotten all about the anniversary!

Suddenly, a death occurs – and, with murder suspected, everyone finds themselves under suspicion.

The question is - who did it and why?

Find out all this and more in our fun filled ‘Fawlty Towers’ themed murder mystery evening!

Exclusive Tram Tours

We are delighted to offer our guests a unique historical tour of Buxton aboard the Wonder of the Peak tram.

Your tour guide will meet you in the hotel, a place of hospitality for over a thousand years, to unlock some of the secrets of this famous place and then guests are invited to ride the tram to learn more about the fascinating inland resort of Buxton.

Every Saturday the tour lasts approximately an hour commencing 5.45pm and costs £10 per person.

The tram can only carry 8 people and demand is high so please express your interest at reception.

“I think I know Buxton as well as any tourist would, but almost all of what I heard was new to me, and I came away with a proper understanding of the history that’s shaped this unique and idiosyncratic town.  It’s an utterly charming experience too.”
