Step aboard an exquisite locomotive for a day of super-sleuthing in an immersive 1950s murder mystery

Step aboard the British Pullman, one of Britain's most opulent and luxurious locomotives, for an afternoon of super sleuthing in an extraordinary high society murder mystery.

You're welcomed on board with a glass of Champagne, and the drama begins as the train pulls away from London Victoria at 11.15am. A cast of suspects transports you to the 1951 Festival of Britain, as a dramatic and murderous plot is revealed. Using your clue sheet and whip-smart detective skills, you'll interview the suspects and solve the mystery as the British Pullman makes its way through the English countryside.

The mystery unravels over a fabulous five-hour train journey. A seasonal five-course lunch, paired with sommelier-selected wines, is rounded off with coffee, tea and petit fours. During the journey, you can relax and gaze at the scenery as you ponder each suspect you'll encounter throughout the afternoon.

The British Pullman returns to London Victoria at 4.15pm, the mystery solved, the villain identified, and prizes for the sharpest detectives awarded.

Other departure dates are available throughout 2023, please call to enquire.
