Take photographs of the immaculate, gleaming steam locomotive while it is stationary at London Victoria Station. Then it is time to board the famous vintage train for a fine-dining experience like no other. Your liveried steward will show you to your table, which is set with fine linen and bespoke tableware. Take time to admire the magnificent marquetry and authentic art deco flourishes of your carriage. As the first course of your gastronomic lunch is served, marvel at the ever-changing views through the window and the plumes of steam trailing through the sky. Read about the train’s history and imagine the famous passengers who once enjoyed its opulent interiors. This is a spectacular start to the festive season, either as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone special.
