Luminary Festive Afternoon Tea
Celebrate the flavours of the festive season aboard the iconic British Pullman train. Journey back through time to a more glamorous era of travel as you indulge in afternoon tea with a seasonal twist
Sit back in your plush armchair and admire the sumptuous art deco details of your carriage, which has been beautifully decorated for this yuletide occasion. Admire the passing vistas through your window 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 Veuve Clicquot 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, exclusively created by Luminary Bakery and 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. After your round trip, arrive back at London Victoria and alight with sweet memories to treasure. As a memento of your journey, we are delighted to offer a bespoke copy of Luminary Bakery’s Rising Hope cookbook per person. Please note, passengers do not disembark from the train during this trip. British Pullman operates within the constraints of the railway network. As such, timings, routes and associated itineraries are subject to change.
