Not everyone wants to be part of an organised tour.  But how can you find the dozens of filming locations in Thame and the many surrounding villages without the benefit of an expert guide to help you?  The answer is to use Tony Long’s book, suitably entitled A Midsomer Day Out. The book provides:

  • A  history of Midsomer Murders since it was launched in 1997
  • A full route for a day-long tour, with helpful maps showing the route and where the filming locations can be found
  • Photographs of every location and details of the episodes in which each location was used
  • A list of all 128 episodes, the dates they were first screened in the UK and brief synopsis of the episodes involving locations visited

For anyone planning a trip to Midsomer County, eager to find those places where Midsomer Murders has been filmed, then A Midsomer Day Out is an essential guide.  And if you can’t visit Midsomer County yourself, then the book provides a fascinating insight into Midsomer Murders and a unique flavour of the quintessential English towns and villages in which the show is set.

A Midsomer Day Out Guide Book costs just £8 (plus £2.50 to UK addresses or £5.00 to overseas addresses, for postage and packing) and is available on eBay. It is also available to purchase at Thame Town Hall Information Centre, at Thame Museum, and at The Book House in Thame.
