My British Pullman Murder Mystery Experience

A very different post this week. I want to talk about my Agatha Christie novel in real-life experience.

So, last week I went on the beautiful British Pullman train to take part in a murder mystery experience with Murder on the Menu! This was to celebrate my 21st birthday. My birthday was actually last year but the trip got pushed back to March 2022 due to COVID. This is not an ad. I thought it would be a great thing to talk about.

The way that it all worked was that you would sit in your carriages with a clue sheet. This sheet gives you all the information about the murder and who the characters were. Throughout the 4-hour train journey, through the beautiful English countryside, I might add, you would meet all the suspects and interview them. In the end, you would write down who you think did it and why. If you get it right, you win a prize! That is the experience in its shortest form.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself on this trip. The train was beautiful, the actors were incredible, the staff was lovely and the company was amazing! I would highly recommend these murder mystery experiences. Especially if you are a massive murder mystery fan. I just lost myself in the story. I am not even joking it truly felt like you were in an Agatha Christie novel.

I wanted to talk about two of my favourite things. First up is the mystery itself. The story set to us was super interesting. I don’t want to give too much away as I am not sure how frequently they change the story. But it was amazing. I wasn’t sure, going into it if the plot was going to be more simple or more complicated. You never know if they want it to be a challenge or whether it was just meant to be an easy but fun experience. Well, they did not make it easy at all! The possibilities, there were so many possibilities. I loved being able to meet the different actors and interact with them. Their acting was incredible, the costumes were beautiful, they really helped add to the overall atmosphere. My friends and I spent ages trying to figure out what happened and who did it. We were talking over each other, writing so much down and just laughing! We ended up actually getting everything right! Not sure how we managed it.

Alongside the mystery, we were served some of the tastiest food I had ever had. I truly felt like I was in a 1920/30’s mystery novel and the food helped add to that atmosphere. We had cherry wine, champagne and a 5-course meal! The service was superb and as much as I loved the actors, the staff also helped make the entire experience a laugh and a joy.

The train journey flew by so fast. It was like I blinked and suddenly we were back in London and had to exit the train. If you are a massive murder mystery fan and would like to experience a bit of what it would be like to be in one of those stories, I would 1000% recommend this!
