There’s Been a Murder! London to get Immersive Victorian Murder Mystery on the River Thames this Halloween – 19.10.21

  • Eco-friendly, self-drive boat company GoBoat to put on immersive Victorian murder mystery on the Thames
  • Guests transported back in time as actors in costume and character immerse customers into Victorian era
  • Riddles, tasks and clues will have Londoners cracking the case in Canary Wharf’s Docklands

Eco-friendly boat company, GoBoat, is putting on the ultimate immersive murder mystery on the capital’s waterways to celebrate Halloween.

For one week only (starting Monday October 25th) the self-drive boat company will take guests back in time to the 1800’s to solve a mysterious murder, in the heart of the capitals business district, Canary Wharf.

Actors in Victorian costume and character will greet guests and immerse them into the experience as they explain the mystery that must be solved, all before setting sail in an attempt to crack the case. Interactive stop off points will guide guests on their way to investigating the case, whilst Victorian characters will interact with people along the way giving riddles and clues to help the budding detectives.

To encourage guests to get in to character too, there will be a selection of prizes up for grabs – everything from boat trip vouchers to free meals to Halloween prizes – to those wearing the best Halloween costumes.

GoBoat Head of Marketing, Ryan Price, said: “GoBoat is a great experience for all age groups, and we are very excited to put on this incredible immersive experience for our guests in the capitals Dockland’s. Our spooky Victorian actors are ready to get Canary Wharf in the Halloween spirit and we can’t wait to see the amazing costumes that people turn up in.”

Groups of up to eight can board each boat in the Docklands and no prior boating knowledge is necessary, with guests getting a full tutorial before setting sail. Guests will enjoy a leisurely cruise, with the boats travelling at speeds of 4mph, and take in one of London’s most impressive skylines.

GoBoat recommends a two-hour booking to complete the Murder Mystery experience which can be booked at
