Halloween is just around the corner and there are plenty of spooktacular events going on around the UK. 

If you haven’t made plans yet, a new immersive experience could be right up your street.

GoBoat is hosting a Victorian murder mystery on the Thames this week – in the heart of the capital’s financial district, Canary Wharf.

Running until Sunday 31 November, guests sailing on the vessels will be transported back in time, as actors in costume bring the Victorian era to life.

Those taking part will be tasked with trying to solve the mystery through a series of riddles, activities and clues.

Stop-off points along London’s waterways will aim to help guests investigating the case and the Victorian characters will interact to offer some guidance and helpful hints. 

To encourage those taking part to get into the spirit of things, there will even be a selection of prizes up for grabs for those wearing the best Halloween costumes – including boat trip vouchers and free meals.

It’s worth pointing out that groups of up to eight can board each boat and there’s no prior boating knowledge required. So simply show up and set sail.

The team also suggest opting for a two-hour booking to complete the murder mystery experience.

Ryan Price, head of marketing at GoBoat, said: ‘We are very excited to put on this incredible immersive experience for our guests in the capital’s Docklands. 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.’

But this isn’t the only nautical-themed activity on offer this week, the boating company is also running a pirate-themed treasure hunt along Regent’s Canal.

In a very similar way, guests will receive a treasure map, tasks and clues in order to try and find the ‘X that marks the spot.’

They will also come across some friendly pirates along the way to help them on their voyage.
