Festive Afternoon Tea

Your Journey

Celebrate the flavours of the festive season aboard the iconic Belmond British Pullman train. Journey back through time to a more glamorous era of travel as you indulge in afternoon tea with a seasonal twist.

Step aboard your beautifully decorated carriage and be transported into a glamorous era of travel with a festive touch. Sit back in your plush armchair and admire the passing vistas as you journey through Greater London and into the Surrey Hills. Soon your steward arrives to pop the cork on a bottle of perfectly chilled Ruinart Champagne for you to share with your travelling companion. As you sip, treat your palate to an array of melt-in-the-mouth delicacies: finger sandwiches, savouries, buttery scones and our signature festive cake selection.

Your afternoon tea is exclusively created by the legendary Claire Clark MBE, one of the world’s most celebrated pastry chefs. Also accompanying the spread is a special Tregothnan Christmas tea, which blends Cornish-plucked leaves with the sweet, fragrant flavour of manuka flowers and festively spicy cinnamon. As you relish both the feast and the convivial atmosphere, listen out for the melodious sounds of carol singers wandering through the carriages. Savour each moment as the train begins to make its way back to London Victoria station, ending a truly perfect celebration of this magical time of year.
