Our guide, Heidi, was extremely knowledgeable about all our detectives and obviously knew the programmes backwards! All sorts of information about where scenes were shot and what happened where with amusing anecdotes. Will re-watch the programmes ourselves with a different eye!

Thank you! We are delighted you enjoyed your tour - I think we could all talk for about Morse / Lewis and Endeavour for longer than the two hours scheduled - there is so much to talk about. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. With very best wishes Heidi

All things Morse and Lewis

We met Leigh at 11.20 a.m. and off we went on a whirlwind tour of places intertwined in the three Morse|Lewis shows. Leigh was informative and fun and the crowd were a mixed bunch of addicts. I found it fascinating that there were Finnish people who were very caught up in the series. The tour was about two hours long and brought in many of the colleges, markets etc. Leigh told us of chases which happened in particular episodes, she showed us where the Morse Bar was in the Randolph hotel if we wanted to explore it after the tour. Enjoyed it thoroughly
