Explore Britain by Rail
The romance of rail travel is encapsulated by Belmond British Pullman. Everything comes easily on this luxurious journey, from the beautiful views to the incredible food served onboard. The experience of sipping champagne as you glide through the British countryside in our sumptuous carriages is, quite simply, divine.
WE HAVE A RANGE of carefully curated journeys to capture your imagination. Choose from culinary adventures and visits to historic cities, plus special celebrations and grand sporting days out. Whichever you pick, we’ll ensure your trip becomes a journey like no other. You’ll recognise our handsome carriages right away at London’s Victoria station, liveried in classic brown and cream. Our steward will show you onboard and familiarise you with this historic train. As you speed away from bustling London and into the verdant English countryside you’ll immediately feel any stresses melt away.
The route to Bath is one of our signature journeys. The train’s classically beautiful interiors prepare you for the city’s Regency architecture and Somerset’s natural landscape. A visit to the renowned Roman Baths is essential, as is a view of the stunning Royal Crescent. It was built by John Wood the Younger in the 18th century. Those seeking retail therapy will find an excellent mix of independent stores and established brands in Bath. This is a great opportunity to escape the intensity of London and experience life at a different pace.
Lovers of fine architecture will appreciate our journeys to iconic homes such as Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, which dates back to 1553. The River Derwent arcs gracefully around the estate while the house itself is depicted in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Its lavish interiors even doubled for those of Buckingham Palace in the critically acclaimed series The Crown.
For culinary connoisseurs, we offer unparallelled dining experiences. Choose from one-off tasting menus by Michelin-starred chefs and lavish dinners paired with different champagnes. Sporting events such as Glorious Goodwood and the Grand National also feature in our calendar. Romantic red-letter days get their turn, too, including Valentine’s journeys and Mother’s Day trips.
Of course, for those who want to really turn back the clock, we offer our classic steam-hauled journeys; there’s nothing quite like the sound of the whistle.Explore Britain with Belmond
