West Somerset Railway - Murder Mystery Specials

12th September 2020 Calling all amateur sleuths!

Do you see yourself as a Miss Marple or a Jessica Fletcher, Hercule Poirot or Sherlock Holmes? Well, the West Somerset Railway's Murder Mystery season is a must for all you amateur crime fighters. As you go peacefully about your train journey to and from the seaside the actors will be staging a murderous tale for you to try to solve.

Apart from the dastardly doings your steam train ride will also include the following menu choices served to you at your seat as the train leaves Bishops Lydeard at 19.00 plus of course the mystery unfolding before your eyes.

The entertainment begins on the platform promptly at 19.00. Boarding is from 18.45. Passengers should arrive in good time to find their seats, and leave the train again for the first scene on the platform at 19.00.

All murder mysteries start at Bishops Lydeard at 19:15 and travel the full length of the line to Minehead and back (apart from the 15th September which goes as far as Blue Anchor then returns to Bishops Lydeard). You should arrive back at Bishops Lydeard at approx. 23.00.

The dress code is 'smart casual' and we encourage you to enter the spirit of the event by dressing in appropriate period costume if you desire!

There is a bar on the train serving alcoholic and soft drinks, teas and coffees.

These evenings are not suitable for children and dogs are not permitted.
