You are invited to arrive at the Castle in the afternoon, before you head on an after-hours self-guided tour. The butler will then call for dinner, where a delicious Christmas feast with all the trimmings awaits in The Salon, and the evening's show will commence. With immersive entertainment, you will work with other guests to figure out the mystery.

Once solved, you'll retire to your luxurious Castle guestroom for a peaceful night's sleep. Gather with fellow guests as you recount the evening's events over a hearty full English breakfast in the Castle the following morning, for overnight guests only.
