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. Impeccable service at tables adorned with crisp white linen and sparkling tableware complete a truly wonderful dining experience.
Beginning and ending in London, we travel just under 23,000 miles across the globe on this incredible worldwide adventure. Starting in the iconic 'Big Apple', we chart a course across the heartland of America, to the West Coast. From there, we cross the Pacific into Asia and immerse ourselves in the rich legacies of China, before boarding the iconic Tsar's Gold Train for the journey across Russia. For the final leg of the journey, we head into central Europe, south through the imperial cities to Venice, boarding the luxurious Simplon-Orient- Express for the journey home.
