Your day begins as our liveried stewards welcome you aboard and escort you to your plush seat. Your table is set for a fine dining experience, complete with crisp white linen, dazzling glassware and specially designed crockery. Sip your sparkling Bellini and marvel at the sumptuous interiors. Vintage fabrics and handcrafted marquetry in each individually-themed carriage capture the opulence of 1920s Pullman trains. Relax, slow down, and admire the ever-changing winter views through your generous picture window. Arriving in Derbyshire's Peak District you will transfer to Chatsworth House. Regarded as one of the most enchanting estates in the UK, it is the residence of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. During the winter the house is dressed for Christmas. Learn how the Duke spends the festive season with his family and let yourself be swept up in the seasonal spirit. After an enriching afternoon, return to the train for an effervescent champagne reception. Your journey home features a gastronomic five-course dinner with our sommelier’s hand picked wine. Chat over the highlights of your day and absorb the passing scenery outside. Whether a gift for someone special or simply treating yourself, this will surely be a day to remember.
Chatsworth House is an enchanting location any time of the year, with its fairytale architecture, extensive art collection and ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped gardens. However, during the festive season is takes on an especially magical lustre.
The interiors are decorated for Christmas with a particular magical theme that changes annually.
