Explore the Midsomer Murders locations

Wallingford, Oxfordshire

Follow in the footsteps of Inspector Barnaby as you explore Causton, Midsomer Newton and more on the trail of the Midsomer Murders locations.

If you’re a fan of the Midsomer Murders books and TV series, you’ll know Midsomer County as the home of traditional pubs, village greens and Sunday afternoon cricket. You’ll also know of the improbable number of murders committed in strangely creative ways.

Thankfully, the Midsomer Murders solved by DCI Barnaby are fictional, but the villages and market towns seen in each episode are not. These South Oxfordshire locations are the real stars of the show and you can easily explore them by following self-guide trails, or by taking a chauffeur driven guided tour.

Pose for photos drinking a beer in Barnaby’s favourite pubs; see the shops he went to, the churches he visited and the bridges he crossed. Along the way you’ll discover filmed locations like Wallingford, Thame, Dorchester, Ewelme, Nettlebed, the Rotherfields, the Haseleys and Warborough; towns and villages every bit as wonderful as their fictional counterparts.
