Enchantment spills from the pages of our favourite playwright on this spellbinding tour of Shakespeare’s home town. The Belmond British Pullman train sets the scene for a dramatic arrival in clouds of billowing steam at Stratford-Upon-Avon, where you’ll uncover the birthplace of this world-famous bard.

Admire the grand engine sending whistles and wisps of steam into the air as you board the carriages of our art deco icon. Our liveried stewards serve a refreshing Bellini cocktail followed by a delicious three-course brunch. As you dine on indulgent delights, take in the changing views through your window and the nostalgic chug of the engine on your outward journey to Stratford-Upon-Avon. Later, we arrive at Warwick Parkway station where your guide will whisk you away by coach to a lovely rural farm—the home of Mary Arden, Shakespeare’s mother. From here, you’ll continue to the cottage of Anne Hathaway, the playwrights wife. Next, head into the centre of Stratford to visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace, the writer’s half-timbered childhood home. You’ll have some free time in this charming town to explore for yourself. Return to the carriages of Belmond British Pullman later in the afternoon for a glass of chilled champagne and a mouthwatering four-course dinner, accompanied by our sommelier’s choice of wine. Before long you’re sipping an aromatic coffee and pulling into London Victoria Station, at the end of a fascinating day.
