Oxford at Christmas
Step back in time on the British Pullman luxury train as you head to Oxford, one of Europe’s most prestigious cities.
Your journey today aboard the iconic carriages of the British Pullman takes you to festive historic Oxford. Settle into your comfortable seat and enjoy brunch with a Bellini as the train journeys out of London and towards Oxfordshire. The train will arrive into Oxford Parkway station where you will be transferred by coach into Oxford city centre. Here you are free to explore the city, enjoy carol singing and wander the stalls offering traditional crafts and local produce. Please make your own way back to Oxford Station - a short walk from the centre - 10 minutes before the departure time shown on your travel documents to re-join the gleaming carriages of our beautifully restored train for the journey back to London. A three-course dinner with champagne and wine makes a delicious end to a wonderful day. British Pullman operates within the constraints of the railway network. As such timings, routes and associated itineraries are therefore subject to change.
Home to royalty, scholars, and Oxford University - one of the oldest universities in the world - Oxford is an incredibly historic city that is just as enchanting during the Christmas season. Stroll through the cobblestone streets and secret alleyways, each with their own infamous story to tell, adorned with twinkling Christmas lights and decorations.
Take a moment to look up and admire the beautiful architecture of each ancient building, adorned with festive wreaths and garlands, and marvel at the mystical dreaming spires. Immerse yourself in history, from the Venice-inspired Bridge of Sighs to Britain's oldest public museum, the Ashmolean, the perfect setting for a compelling Christmas adventure.
