What Does The Murder Express Part Deux – Jewel of the Empire Experience Include?

1930s cast members
Let’s set the scene… It’s 1937, the height of the ferocious and evergrowing British Empire. On an excavation, famous archeologist Dr. Errol Earhart has discovered something truly priceless. The world’s most valuable diamond, The Jewel of the Empire.

To ensure it’s in safe hands, it’s been transported to the Von Cleethorpes estate, on Pedley Street Station Murder Express.

But this isn’t like any normal train journey you’ve been on before. You’ll have the sights of 1937 London whizz past you at a rapid rate as if you’re really “moving” on the train. With 1930s decor on the train, cast members in character and dressed up in theatrical gear, like your ticket inspector!

Soon enough, the jewel goes missing, murders begin to plague the train and the clock is ticking. This theatrical experience is all about finding that missing diamond…and finding out who the murderer is.

It could be you.

With slapstick comedy and compelling but light murder mystery bants, you’ll be having a splendid time!

The experience lasts for 2 hours and you’ll be sat at your dedicated table with other members of your party.
