Journey details

Your evening starts at Norchard Station at 18:00, where you will be introduced to the mystery, before travelling in style on board our steam train, with a two-course meal, consisting of a main course and a dessert, served on board while you crack the case!

Sat 16th March – A Mysterious Affair at Norchard

It is 1943 and Lady Rosemary Park has planned a fundraising event at Dean Forest Manor, Norchard, in support of Britain’s Spitfire Fund. Arriving at the event are many people from all walks of life, including the world famous detective, Hercule Marrow, a close friend of Lady Park.

However, as events unfold, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems and not everyone can be trusted – remember: careless talk costs lives! So grab those ration books and sharpen your pencils as you take note of the goings on; for what appears to be a simple soiree, is becoming much more.

Sat 18th May – Sherlock Nolmes and The Scandal in Lydney

Sherlock Nolmes joins us once again as he investigates the case of Lord Felstein, who has been engaged in a scandalous affair. However, in order to save their family’s estate, Lord Felstein is soon to be married to a very wealthy Lady of his family’s choosing. Both families want to avoid the affair becoming public knowledge and so they enlist Sherlock’s expertise, but how far will they go to prevent the scandal?

Sat 20th July – Doc Mortimer Rides Again 

After solving the mystery surrounding the Dean family last year, Sheriff Doc Mortimer is once more embroiled in events which have overtaken the town of Norchard, Utah. So crack those whips, wave your hats and ride with the Sheriff’s posse to the latest showdown and help track down the perpetrators.

Sat 12th October – Terror Train 2: Norchard Nightmare 3000 

All quiet on set and get ready for lights, camera, MURDER. You have been taken on as an extra for the latest horror production by PinchPenny Productions; Terror Train 2: Norchard Nightmare 3000.
The movie is already over budget, over acted and set to be the biggest box office bomb of the decade, but things are going from bad to worse as a killer stalks the set.
Can you crack the case before the finale turns into a real life horror show?
