Dive Into Sherlock Holmes’ Most Famous Case at This Immersive Murder Mystery Experience

Immersive experience experts The Lost Estate is extending their latest show through August and September

Picture the scene: it’s 1889, news of a phantom hound is causing chaos in London, and the game’s afoot. This is the setting for The Lost Estate’s latest immersive show, The Great Murder Mystery, which throws you into the world of Sherlock Holmes and his most famous case, The Hound of the Baskervilles, complete with performances, music, fine dining and mixology.

After being transported back to 221B Baker Street, filled with Holmes’ cabinets of curiosities, you get to watch the action unfold as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson try to crack the mysterious case, accompanied by live string music. Throughout the performance, you can order a bespoke cocktail from the tableside martini carts, flag down the resident sommelier for wine recommendations from their black book of bottles, or even indulge in one of two curated wine flights paired to the three-course menu.

Head Chef Ashley Clarke (ex-Gordon Ramsay Group, Temper Soho and Smokestak) has created a menu that, like the show, takes you on a journey through Victorian London. A starter inspired by Holmes’ favourite meal of ham and eggs – house-cured duck ham, confit egg yolk bearnaise and pickled blackberries – is followed by spring chicken with black truffle mousse, spring pea tart, Pommes Anna and chicken scratchings. The finale is a take on the new Victorian invention of ice cream, featuring champagne sorbet on top of a Devonshire tart with black sesame and strawberry compote. And yes, there’s an alternative veggie menu available, including arancini with asparagus and piquillo pepper ratatouille, burrata and black truffle tortellini. 

With a number of different ticket options, ranging from dinner and the show to a VIP package with private booth seating, nightcaps and canapés, The Great Murder Mystery is a night out on the town like no other. 

Until September 2024
