Historic York

Your Journey

Step back in time on the Belmond British Pullman luxury train as you head to York, one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities.

On the outward journey a delicious brunch is served by your liveried steward. As you enjoy the first gastronomic experience of the day, take time to admire the vintage details of your carriage. Your table is set with pristine tablecloths and sparkling bespoke glassware. Sit back and admire the ever-changing views through the picture window as you journey north. Arriving around midday you will be met by guides for a walking tour of York. Highlights include the stunning Minster and fascinating medieval streets called The Shambles. After exploring the city return to the train for a delightful champagne reception. Shortly afterwards you will be served a lavish five-course dinner, accompanied by fine wine. After dining in style, relax and enjoy the scenery, or take a stroll through the train to admire the art deco opulence of the other carriages. With Belmond British Pullman the journey is as magical as the destination.

Historic York


Historic York

Two thousand years of Roman, Viking, Georgian and Victorian history have left their imprint on York. Encircled by medieval walls, the city contains many ancient buildings. Clifford’s Tower was first built by William the Conqueror. 

The magnificent gothic Minster boasts England’s greatest concentration of medieval stained glass. 

The famous cobbled Shambles are lined with enticing shops and cafes. The city is easy to get around, with the exciting National Railway Museum a stone’s throw from the railway station.
