Experience a taste of Jazz Age London with an immersive murder mystery dinner and a stay at a chic Art Deco hotel

With a history that’s often as sordid as it is glamorous, London is a city that conjures up style and scandal in spades. Dip back in time to the era of unsolved murders and moonshine to experience another side to the scintillating Big Smoke, with an evening on board the Murdér Express and a stay in a historical Bethnal Green Hotel.

Your immersive theatrical dining experience starts under the old railway arches in Bethnal Green, where you’ll find the blast-from-the-past bar and train cart where you’ll be dining – and becoming witnesses to a mysterious murder. Here, you’ll embark on a two hour-long ‘train journey’ from London to Murdér, tucking into period-inspired fare like Mullingatawny soup and Butler’s steak created by former Master Chef finalists, with a side of Agatha Christie-style intrigue.

After such a harrowing experience you’ll be all too happy to rest your head at Town Hall Hotel, located nearby. This imposing building is a grand affair, with a refined timeless elegance that has lasted throughout the centuries. It was, as the name suggests, the old town hall, and has stood in the heart of London’s vibrant East End since Edwardian times. It features marble staircases, beautifully modelled Art Deco rooms which have starred in films, and art on display from up-and-coming young artists. While here, be sure to check out the seemingly endless array of bars, galleries and eateries that populate nearby Shoreditch, or take an easy tube journey into central London for all the iconic sights.
