Let us welcome you on board the steam driven Golden Arrow train on the popular Bluebell Railway for a murderous evening of fine dining and drama. Solve the clues of the murder that is played for you by ‘The Company Upfront’.

The period station setting and elegant Pullman dining cars are the perfect setting for this excellent event. The train authentically recreates the fabulous Golden Arrow which once linked London and Paris with a style and panache which made it one of the most desired and well known trains in the world.

With the scene fresh in your mind, you take your seat on board the Golden Arrow, where detective packs, clues and your superb three course meal awaits you. The food and service is of an excellent standard. Whilst you steam through the Sussex countryside, enjoy the splendour of your wood inlaid Pullman carriage.

You now become a Detective to question the surviving characters and suspects, inspect the evidence, examine clues and carry out other Detective tasks to decide the who, how and why!

Then as you relax with a superb meal and drinks, interrogate the characters, work together to identify the murderer and decide the motive and method of the crime. When coffee is served you can reveal your conclusions. On your return to the station all will be revealed.

If you have never experienced one of these superb events – now running for 20 years – then book now. You will enjoy a truly fabulous evening of entertainment, intrigue and fine dining whilst steaming through the Sussex countryside in the wonderful elegance of yesteryear. This all is enhanced by a luxury stay at The Ashdown Park Hotel with breakfast included.
