Rachel Cormac was a guest of the Belmond British Pullman, and we are delighted to feature her review of ‘Dead On Time’ for Robb Report.

Murder, She Rode? This Iconic Luxury Train in the UK  Now Offers a Thrilling Mystery Experience

What better place to play real-life Clue than one of Britain’s most iconic trains?

So concluded Belmond. The hospitality titan, which helms 50 properties across 24 countries and the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, has just rolled out a new murder mystery experience aboard the British Pullman. As the train travels through the picturesque English countryside, guests will be treated to a lavish five-course lunch with a side of thrilling theatrics.

The British Pullman has offered similar murder mystery lunches before, but the latest immersive performance was created specifically for the train by the storytelling agency Private Drama Events. Fittingly, the whodunnit harkens back to the 1951 Festival of Britain where the British Pullman’s first four carriages (the Phoenix, Cygnus, Minerva, and Perseus) were revealed to the public. This actual moment in history has been given a fictitious twist made just for wannabe sleuths.
