Murder Mystery Evenings

In collaboration with Murders We Wrote we're excited to announce three special Murder Mystery Evenings at the Tanfield Railway!

Full steam to death!
Saturday 2nd June and 7th July (6pm to approx 10.30pm)
The year is 1929 and you are invited to join the local residents, for their annual summer evening celebrations aboard the Tanfield Express.
But all may not be as it seems in this friendly, rural community. Look closely amongst the clouds of steam and you will find it’s not only the engine where temperatures are rising and what was once an idyllic village is now filled with distrust and whispers that could be causing long held friendships to go off the rails.
So get your glad rags on and hot foot it to station. Will you be in time to discover which unlucky reveler has a one way ticket to the end of the line and which of your fellow passengers set the deadly wheels in motion?
Murder on the Tanfield Express
​Saturday 30th June (6pm to approx 10.30pm)
It's the summer of 1946 the days are warm and bright. Join the country locals as they take a steam train journey on the Tanfield Railway, to their much planned and discussed summer celebrations!
Now that the world is at peace you would be forgiven for thinking that the sleepy village of Tanfield would be too. But despite the national jubilation, the sense of victory seems a distant memory for the residents. Will their planned merriment become derailed by the underlying gossip, secrets and squabbles, resulting in the end of the line for one of the revellers?
Join us for an evening not to forget with a three course buffet supper, and be part of this thrilling Murder Mystery and exercise your little grey cells to see if you can discover who the culprit is before the train terminates!


Ticket price - £45 per person, includes train travel and 3 course meal.
