A group of 40 people from Denmark took a Midsomer Murder Henley walking tour this week, following Inspector Barnaby’s footsteps around the town, taking in filming sites of the popular TV series. The tour started and ended at The Arygll pub in Market Square with many enjoying a pint of the specially brewed Midsomer Ale or a Barnaby scone afterwards.
The hour tour takes in the film locations including the Town Hall, the Regatta Reach, Gabriel Machin the butchers and Tudor Antiques in Duke Street. The group were also interested to hear about the history and architecture of the town including the Civil War. Anthea Osbourn-Jones who was one of the guides said, “The group were also fascinated to know about George Harrison and Dusty Springfield and to see her grave in the churchyard at St Mary’s.”
Sarah Osbourne who co-ordinates the tour said, “In Denmark Midsomer is in the top 3 TV shows. It is great to have a big group like this who will spend time and money in the town. This group alone will probably spend between £800-£2,000 during their visit. Many of whom also said they’d like to come back and spend more time in Henley.”
Midsomer Walking Tours are taking place every Saturday at 11.00am from now until October. To book go to http://www.theargyllhenley.co.uk/midsomer-location-tours/
