Her Majesty is the first British Monarch to have served seventy years on the throne, and we are excited to be celebrating this significant milestone on the iconic British Pullman. Your sensational afternoon tea, created by legendary pastry chef Claire Clark MBE in partnership with Luminary Bakery, is paired with the rare opportunity to sample Windsor Great Park sparkling wine from the Queen’s own estate. Your journey begins at London Victoria Station, where you join the immaculate art deco train. Your steward will escort you to your table set with crisp white linen and bespoke china. Settle into your plush seat and absorb the stunning details of your vintage surroundings, from polished marquetry and brass luggage racks to lavish textiles. Each carriage is unique and has a fascinating story to tell. As the train begins its journey through Greater London and into Surrey, you’ll be served an exquisite array of savoury delicacies and irresistible pastries, together with refreshing tea and a bottle of Windsor Great Park sparkling wine per couple. Soak up the changing views through your picture window as you relax into the convivial ambience on board. 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 every guest a bespoke copy of Luminary Bakery’s Rising Hope cookbook. 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.
