This October The Murdér Express invites you to jump on board and travel back in time to the 19th century to the fictional town of Murdér in France. Passengers will enter via the Pedley Street Station ‘Seven Sins’ Bar, and will enjoy a tipple of two while their luggage is being packed on board the train. Surrounded by lavish furnishings, passengers will be joined by cheeky chappy characters, such as Frank, an East End Costermonger, Tilley, a music hall star, Vera a widow in search of adventure, and Cliff, a local antique dealer, as they set out on a rather peculiar trip. 

Boarding through an elegant dining car, home to plush booth seating and period table lamps, guests will be able to sample some specially designed dishes by BBC One’s MasterChef 2017 finalist, Louisa Ellis, as they’re taken through the mystical story of the express.

Of course The Murdér Express has undertaken government guidelines in line with social distancing and sanitised areas. PPE will be worn by staff, plus sanitiser stations and Perspex screens will be dotted around throughout the space. There’s also a reduced capacity with an amended seating plan too, helping to adhere to social distancing guidelines while also adding another level of intimacy to the special immersive experience.
