What is a Midsomer tour?

Explore the stunning scenery and villages of Midsomer and discover the stories and locations behind the show.  Iconic locations, breathtaking views and facts for the fans, this is a truly wonderful day out!

DCI Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and more recently his cousin DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) have been involved in over 120 cases and solved perhaps 300 murders in the 25 years of the show.

Many towns and villages in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and the surrounding countryside have been used for filming. We can visit many places where a scene (or a character) has been shot!
