This five hour trip sets off from London’s Victoria station and transports you back in time. The original Pullman carriages date from the 1920’s and 1930’s, and include exquisite art deco marquetry, polished brass and first class service from liveried stewards. During a sumptuous five-course meal with champagne and wine, sift through the evidence of the many characters onboard to see if you can solve the murder!

Day Behind the Scenes of Kent and East Sussex Railway – great for rail enthusiasts
