The Belmond British Pullman reveals the best of everything British as you travel on carefully restored carriages from the glory days of 1920s. The carriages exude warmth with a rich wooden tone, frescoed panels on the walls and elaborate seats. Over the years the train has been a favourite with the Royal Family and numerous other noteworthy guests. Each carriage carries a different name - Vera, Gwen, Audrey, Minerva to name a few - and each of them has a distinct décor that renders individual personality.
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.
First Class Service
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. Impeccable service at tables adorned with crisp white linen and sparkling tableware complete a truly wonderful dining experience.
