The Murdér Express offers a captivating immersive theatrical dining experience where the train stays stationary but gives the sense that you are moving. You will be transported back to 1920s East London at the fictional Pedley Street Station. Each guest becomes part of our story as we all travel together to the fictional French town of Murdér. 

Your train ticket includes a theatrical show and delightful 3 course meal. Drinks are not included in the ticket price but are available throughout and we have an expert bar team serving some of the finest cocktails and wines in town, non alcoholic beverages too of course. If you prefer to watch the show without dining, please note that the ticket price remains unchanged.

Every guest requires a ticket regardless of age, please note we do not offer a Child’s ticket. Children aged between 5- 14 years old are only allowed in shows up to 8pm. We do not allow children under 5 years old in any of our shows due to the advanced menu and that it is a theatrical performance. All children must be supervised at all times and to be noted that there is not space for children to run free they must be seated throughout the show at all times. 

Please note, anyone under the age of 18 years of age will need to be accompanied by a Parent/ Guardian.  

Dates and showtimes can vary depending on the time of year and our private hire calendar. Please take a look at our ticket availability here. Book Now.

We do not have a waiting list – when a guest’s booking is cancelled, this availability goes back onto our website so the website is the best place to book your tickets.

Service dogs are accepted aboard The Murdér Express if we are contacted and informed ahead of the event. Please get in touch with us in advance to make the necessary arrangements for your service dog.

We kindly ask that you make prior arrangements for the care of your non-service furry friends while you enjoy our immersive experience. Your cooperation is much appreciated!

Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase.

You cannot order food that isn’t on the menu or substitute items on the menu.

Niall Keating’s menu is fixed and contains meat, dairy & gluten. We are committed to accommodating allergies and dietary requirements and have created our very own alternative ‘Funicular Continental Menu’.

It is important that guests make us aware of allergies and dietary requirements ahead of time by completing this form: Dietary and Seating Form.  We must receive this information at least 48 hours before your scheduled ticket date/time. Changes or requests made on the door may not be possible. If we have not received any dietary requests we will assume there are no allergies and you will be served Niall’s menu.

While our team on site are trained to deal with allergies and will take every precaution and care, we cannot guarantee that the venue is free from the possibility of cross contamination. We expect that guests with severe allergies will make us aware of their allergies before their arrival and will bring their Epi Pen with them. 

Our ‘Funicular Menu’ is designed to accommodate most Kosher and Halal dietary preferences. However, it’s important to be aware that our preparation kitchen does not have a Kosher or Halal certification. Depending on the level of adherence to these dietary guidelines, this menu may or may not be suitable. 

As an added treat, we have introduced a special wine pairing package designed to enhance your dining experience. This package features a delightful welcome drink of bubbly served on the platform, as well as a perfectly paired glass of wine with your starter, main course, and a drink to compliment your dessert. Elevate your meal with this highly recommended drink accompaniment, and savour the full experience of our incredible cuisine.

Drinks can be purchased via a QR code once you have checked into the experience. This is the fastest and easiest way to accommodate your drink requests, especially during the onboard experience. On the back of your ticket and on each table is a QR code that when scanned will take you to our online ordering and payment platform. We invite you to view the menu prior to arrival in order to familiarise yourself with our range of cocktails, beers, wines, and soft drinks.

You can view the menu here: https://pay.yoello.com/v/pedley-st

We do not use an App so you do not need to download anything. Simply hover your phone camera over the QR code, a link will appear, select the link and it will open a web browser where you can place your order. Please do not attempt to order anything before you arrive at the venue and have been given your table number at Check-In. If you do attempt to order before arriving, the drinks will likely be made during another journey and we will be unable to refund.

All alcoholic beverages purchased on site or for consumption on site and cannot be taken away from the venue.

If you have any questions or concerns onsite please always do ask our friendly staff who will be on hand to assist with your journey to Murdér.

Our train carriage consists of 8 booths which can seat up to 8 guests each. Groups on the same booking will absolutely be sat together or near each other depending on the group size. If your group is very large we may split you across more than one table. If tickets are purchased separately but you wish to be seated together please let us know names on each booking, please fill out the Dietary and Seating google form you received to put this request through. We must have this information 24 hours before the event.

If you have booked a VIP booth you will have a private booth to yourself for you and up to 5 guests (6 total). If you have not booked a VIP table ticket then you may be sharing with other guests.

Our VIP package includes the same wonderful meal and experience as our standard tickets with these added extras:

  • Express Access: Bypass the queues by accessing our private entrance, leading you straight to the platform waiting area. Our dedicated concierge will be on hand to warmly welcome you, manage your check-in, and complimentary assistance with any coats or bags.
  • Premier Boarding Privileges: Seize the opportunity to be the very first to step on board the train and settle into your seats, ensuring a prime view of the entire experience.
  • Intimate Private Booth: Revel in the ultimate comfort and luxury with your own private booth, accommodating 2 to 6 guests. With our guarantee of no shared seating, you’ll savour an exclusive atmosphere throughout your dining journey.
  • Bespoke Service: Prepare to be pampered by our Head Waiter, who will personally welcome you and orchestrate your dining experience from start to finish. With their watchful eye, your culinary adventure will be nothing short of extraordinary.

We attempt to open the doors for each show approximately 15 minutes before the advertised ticket time. However due to our schedule this is not always possible. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your ticket time especially in bad weather as there is nowhere to shelter outside of the venue.  It is a 2 hour experience from the time the doors open which then gives you access to the bar and the train where you will eat and be entertained with our show. Once finished we do have to vacate the venue as we will likely have another train departing shortly afterwards. Once the train has arrived at its destination and the show has come to an end we must vacate the venue promptly and safely in order to prepare for another immediate departure so please do kindly listen to our station team and follow their instructions. 

The experience is 2 hours from the moment the doors open. Please note we do have a schedule in place so please be respectful to our team when they let you know our experience is finished.

Pedley Street Station will open doors 10-15 minutes before your confirmed ticket time. 
The Station will need to be cleared within 10-15 minutes of your train’s arrival back at Pedley Street.

We do not enforce a strict dress code however we do expect people to ‘’dress for dinner’’ so please avoid overly casual and/or workwear style clothes. Lots of our passengers dress for the 1920s journey and we encourage you to do the same! 

The trip is a bit more fun that way, we think! Fear not, running late and feel you want to dress up – Good news, we do sell 1920’s accessories at the venue. 

Pedley Street Station has step free access from street to platform, bar and accessible bathroom.  There are 3 steps up to the train, however we have a ramp that can be set up that can allow access for most wheelchairs. There are size and weight limitations so please get in touch if this is needed. If you are registered disabled or require additional assistance at the event, please contact us at info@funicularproductions.com at the time of booking, to make sure your experience is as smooth as possible. 

 

Please also note, our toilets are unisex and located on the ground floor platform and accessible for all. 

The show duration is 2 hours long and once guests board the carriage, access to bathrooms becomes limited during the remainder of the production (1.5hrs).

We have an area near our Door Supervisor for the storage of bags and coats for the duration of your journey. Although security monitors this area during the performance all items are left at your own risk. 

Please do not bring any large bags or suitcases to the venue as we have limited space. 

We reserve the right to search any large or unusual looking bags before they enter the venue. 

If, when requested, you refuse to have a bag searched we may refuse entry. 

Niall Keating designed our main menu and our fabulous in house Kitchen team headed up by our head Chef Stefano execute the menu daily. 

With this in mind our Niall Keating is not at the venue cooking as he will more often than not be at his Award Winning Restaurant ‘Lunar’ at World of Wedgwood, Staffordshire a partnership between Niall and one of our Co-Founders. We do have Niall to thank for the creation of our delicious menus which I’m sure you will agree is consistently excellent.

Lunar by Niall Keating is located at World of Wedgwood, Staffordshire, just 10 mins from J15 of the M6 or 15 mins from Stoke On Trent or Stafford Train Station. You can visit their website here: www.LunarWedgwood.com 

Our menu is filling and you likely won’t have space for cake! We have a set menu which includes a dessert and limited space at our venue with a busy kitchen to store so we unfortunately cannot cater for this. Due to fire regulations, we are also not allowed to have open flames at the venue. 

Please note, we do not allow any food or drinks to be brought into the venue.

Pedley Street Station is located on a residential street and there is no parking directly outside the venue, however there is limited parking in the surrounding streets including Cheshire Street.  We advise you to travel by public transport if possible. If you are a large group and travelling by coach, please note the road is fairly narrow.

Refer to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets’ guidelines. We have parking restrictions out the front of the venue, but we can make special arrangements if you provide your vehicle’s registration number in advance.
