Murder Mystery at Brunel's SS Great Britain on Friday 13th October 2017

Posted on: 11 Oct 2017

Tasty morsels and tantalizing murders come together this Friday 13th October on board Brunel's legendary SS Great Britain.


The groundbreaking and historic former passenger steamship created by one of the world's greatest engineers - he of magnificent of hat and impressive of cigar - will be the location of an evening of intrigue, murder-solving detective work, and a delicious three-course meal. 

SS Great Britain Bristol

Murder Mystery is set in 1937 in the company of the Southeast African Safari as the ship is set to sail from the shores. The evening might begin with casual jollity and affable bonhomie but will end up decidedly more sinister in tone with some of the guests bidding their final homicidal farewells. 


The location is the grandiloquent First Class Dining Saloon and patrons will have to switch on their finest detective minds as the plot unfolds throughout the course of the evening as you're tasked with the job of solving murder most foul.


Solving the riddle of such murderous shenanigans is, of course, hungry work, which is why you'll also be able to tuck in to a fine and mouthwatering three-course dinner which will include the likes of warm smoked haddock, leek & Wookey Hole cheddar tart; crisp confit duck leg with all the trimmings; and apple tart with blackberry compote and clotted cream.

Kicking off at 7.30pm, tickets cost £70 (£65 for groups of eight or more) and can be purchased here


Brunel's SS Great Britain is located at Great Western Dockyard, Bristol, BS1 6TY.  Tel. 0117 926 0680
