The Murder ExpressPart immersive theatre, part dining experience, The Murder Express transports guests back to the 19th century, to a time when travelling by train for pleasure is in its infancy. Climb aboard a glamorous train for The Murder Express and you'll be served a menu created by BBC One's MasterChef 2016 finalists, Billy and Jack, as the story unfolds. The tale is told by a cast of characters including Frank, an East End Costermonger, Tilley, a music hall star, Vera, a widow in search of adventure and Cliff, an antique dealer. Departing from Funicular's Pedley Street Station, passengers are invited to be one of the first to experience 'The Murder Express' as it makes its first historic journey from London to the fictional town of Murder in France.
