Booking Information

Advance booking only and the numbers are limited, so we recommend that you do book early to avoid disappointment please. Due to the fixed seating layout, bookings are made per complete table of 2, 3 or 4 persons. Prices include train fare and meal but exclude additional drinks. Wines, spirits, beer and soft drinks are available at your seat at extra cost. To assist our staff in making the most of your visit, please indicate at the end of the booking if there is a special celebration, anniversary or whatever is happening and provide us with details of the event and the name of the person, or persons, for whom this is a special occasion.

Make up a Party of 8 (or more)

There are great rates for groups of 8 or more and better still, groups of 15+ attract even greater savings.  To find out more please call 07718 003133 and we will be delighted to discuss availability and prices with you.

Menus and Dietary Requirements

All of our dining trains have a fixed menu, including vegetarian option, which will be available on the website for each particular date. To avoid embarrassment on the day, please give details of any member of your party who has any special dietary requirements or allergies that require a different meal to be provided, e.g. vegan, gluten free, dairy free, no nuts, no red meat, no mushrooms, no shellfish, etc. Please note that it is impossible for us to provide an alternative to the fixed menu if we are only advised on the day.

Departure Times

Murder Mystery evenings start at 18.15. The dining train departs Chinnor Station when everyone is comfortably seated and returns to Chinnor Station at approximately 22.15 and the event concludes at approx. 22.30. Meals are served during three round trips of the line. Please allow time to park at the station prior to the start of your evening.


Due to the internal dimensions of our heritage coaches, we regret that less able persons can only be accommodated if they are not confined to a wheelchair.


On Murder Mystery dining trains we suggest a minimum age of 10 years. 

Please note

Our train is alternately hauled or propelled by our steam locomotive and one of our vintage diesel locomotives. This means that the comfort of our visitors is ensured and that they can remain in their seats on both round trips of the line (if only the steam locomotive were used, it would mean everyone getting off the train and waiting on the platform half-way through the evening to comply with safety, whilst she runs-round your train!)

Booking information

Also we are delighted that so many of our visitors make repeat trips on our Murder Mystery trains. However, we would always want to offer you a fresh Murder Mystery plot on each occasion and if you are booking for a second / third time, or more, then do please get in touch on the above number and let us know either the date you have been before or the re-enactment you have previously enjoyed.

Thank you and we very much look forward to seeing you.
