Have you read Murder on the Orient Express? Or seen the movie? Here’s your chance to solve your own murder mystery aboard the famous and historic Orient Express!
You’ll be transported to 1933 as the train takes you through the English countryside during this five hour experience.
Sip a glass of champagne and enjoy a five course lunch whilst trying to solve a mysterious murder case. You’ll be in railway carriages dating from the 1920s and 1930s so you’ll be travelling – and sleuthing – in style. Why not get into the spirit of thing and dress in 1930s style? That would be such fun.
Even if you don’t solve the mystery (you fellow travellers might) you’ll experience an example of the great days of rail travel of previous years.
If you’re enjoying this fabulous experience as a celebration, you can also order flowers, caviar and champagne to make your experience extra special. The train leaves from Victoria Station in London and is a great add-on to your UK vacation.
Hear from just one reviewer:
Even approaching Platform 1, Victoria Station one could sense a buzz of excitement surrounding the people gathered there. The Venice Simplon Orient Express did not disappoint – she was stunning! Merely walking alongside admiring the carriages made you smile in anticipation.
Like something off a movie set or simply transported back to the ’30s you couldn’t take your eyes off this classic vintage transportation model. The interior was just as beautiful – all gleaming woodwork and polished brassware. Tables set with crisp white cloths, crystal glasses and silverware.
To top it all off, the staff were also in timeless uniforms and delivered an impeccable service. The journey flew by in a mixture of fine dining and champagne quaffing, whilst thought provoking period dressed actors came by to spin you their version of the mystery murder that needed to be solved. We listened, questioned, queried, discussed and deliberated until we came to our verdict – and we were right! What a day…
