Recalling the halcyon era of luxury rail travel as pioneered by the American industrialist and engineer, George Pullman, the British Pullman takes guests of Great Rail Journeys on a nostalgic and unforgettable journey through the timeless English countryside.
Instantly recognisable with its immaculate cream and brown livery, the British Pullman departs from London's Victoria Station and offers memorable trips to a selection of the UK's most popular cities, stately homes and other compelling destinations.
The British Pullman also offers themed excursions that celebrate occasions such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and the festive season.
As a sister train of the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, the sumptuously-appointed British Pullman has welcomed aboard the British Royal Family and world leaders, and today Great Rail Journeys invites you to enjoy for yourself the five-star luxury travel experience offered by this historic train.
Each British Pullman service comprises eleven vintage carriages, each of which dates from the 1920s or 1930s and has its own unique history. When you join Great Rail Journeys for a journey aboard the British Pullman you will be personally escorted to your seat by a uniformed train steward.
Once aboard, you can relax and admire your lovingly-restored and Art-Deco styled carriage; polished wood veneers, brass fittings, quality fabrics and soft lighting combine to recreate the authentic ambience of a bygone era of luxury rail travel.
Your comfortable seat is also the best place from which to admire the varied beauty of the British countryside as it passes by.
Depending upon their chosen journey, guests may enjoy a superb brunch, afternoon tea or gourmet dinner aboard the British Pullman. Each meal is freshly prepared by the train's talented chefs using the finest British produce, and can be accompanied by a fine wine from an extensive list.
