Interactive dining experience ‘The Murdér Express’ set out on its maiden voyage from Pedley Street Station, London to the fictional town of Murdér in France.

Entering via the Pedley Street Station ‘Seven Sins’ Bar, passengers of ‘The Murdér Express’ whet their whistles whilst luggage was packed onboard. Joined by 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, guests including Chessie King, Harley St. Nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert and actress Anna Danshina embarked on the trip of a lifetime.

Boarding via the elegant dining car, featuring plush booth seating lit by period table lamps, guests enjoyed a three-course menu, designed by BBC One’s MasterChef 2016 finalists, Billy and Jack.
