On the outward journey settle into your plush seat and prepare for a delicious brunch. Your elegant table is set with crisp white linen and bespoke china and glassware. As you savour each gastronomic dish take time to admire the beautiful marquetry and art deco features surrounding you. Sit back and relax as liveried stewards take care of your every need, and enjoy the ever-changing views through your picture window. On arrival in Canterbury you are escorted to the famous cathedral to watch the Canterbury Singers perform in a candlelit crypt. Afterwards step out onto the cobbled streets for a spot of Christmas shopping. Return to the train after your visit for a champagne reception. Soon, a four-course dinner is served, complemented by our sommelier’s selection of wine. Sip your champagne, reflect on the day’s festivities and admire the interior design flourishes that make this vintage train unique. Travel aboard British Pullman makes the journey as magical as the destination.
Home to England’s first ever cathedral, which became the site of the grisly murder of Thomas Becket in 1170, Canterbury has been a place of pilgrimage since the Middle Ages.
Its rich history is reflected in the ancient city walls, cobbled alleyways and pilgrims’ inns, but it is also home to vibrant, modern cafés, restaurants and shops.
For a festive ambience head to the traditional Christmas Market in Whitefriars Square to browse handcrafted gifts and decorations.
