Enjoy a delicious evening meal and a fantastic night out. Come and play your part in solving a Murder Mystery!

Departing Sheringham at 7:00pm, one of our steam locomotives will haul the ‘The North Norfolkman’ luxury dining train carrying you on two round trips  along the picturesque North Norfolk coastline to Weybourne and Holt.

Enjoy a three-course meal on the move but keep your eye on the cast of suspicious characters that will join you for the journey! A drama unfolds as the evening continues and it is likely that a crime will be committed – possibly even a murder! You and your companions can turn detective and piece together the clues to finger the perpetrator. By the time coffee & mints are served someone will have solved the murder and the culprit will be unveiled on arrival back at Sheringham.

Each train has a distinct theme and many diners choose to dress the part – this is encouraged but not compulsory. There’s a prize for the most successful sleuth but it’s up to you how seriously you take the investigations!

‘The North Norfolkman’ boasts an onboard bar selling a selection alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Dining is very popular, so book early to avoid disappointment. Please note this service is not suitable for children under the age of 12.

Trains are available to board from 6.30pm, departing at 7.00pm. You will make two return journeys from Sheringham to Holt, arriving back in Sheringham at approximately 10.30pm.
