The Golden Age Of Travel by Steam
Lose yourself in the romance and magic of 1920s train travel on this spectacular steam-hauled journey.
Relive the Golden Age of travel on a glorious steam-hauled round trip through the Kent countryside. Relax into the British Pullman’s iconic art deco surroundings as the evocative chug-chug of the locomotive, the sound of the whistle and the sight of steam drifting past the window all combine to transport you back in time. From the comfort of your plush upholstered armchair, sip a glass of chilled champagne and absorb the intricate details of your carriage. Admire exquisite marquetry, woven brass luggage racks and sumptuous textiles. Each carriage is individually decorated with a unique tale to tell. Your table, laid with crisp linen and bespoke crystal, sets the scene for the gastronomic experience to come. Savour a five-course feast and half a bottle of wine, expertly chosen by our sommelier. Steam trains generate excitement both inside and out. As you glide through destinations such as Faversham, Canterbury and Dover (looking out for the White Cliffs), expect to see bystanders waving and filming while the great locomotive puffs past. Enthusiasts will recognise it as 35028 Clan Line, which hauled the legendary Golden Arrow between Dover and London in the 1950s. Relax over coffee and petits fours before steaming back into London Victoria station, your journey’s end.
