Prepare to take a journey back in time as you relax into the sumptuous surroundings of the iconic British Pullman's art deco carriages. Admire the intricate marquetry, woven brass luggage racks and silken lampshades that transport you back to the golden age of travel. Your journey today takes you to the medieval city of Winchester, famed for its magnificent cathedral and other historic attractions. Settle into your comfortable seat and enjoy a delicious brunch with a Bellini as the train journeys south. On arrival in Winchester you are met by your guide, who will accompany you on a short walk that takes you to the site of the city's Gothic cathedral where the Christmas Market is located. Inspired by the traditional German Christmas markets, the pretty wooden chalets are full of ideas for Christmas gifts, decorations and festive foods. Take time to explore the market and this historic town at this magical time of year. As you embark on your journey back to London, we welcome you back on board with a glass of champagne. Now it's time to savour a delectable four-course dinner, accompanied by half a bottle of wine, with coffee shortly before arrival in London.
Historic Winchester is always a delight to visit, but even more so at Christmas when the festive market is set up in the superb setting of Cathedral Close. Browse a variety of stalls and be enticed by the aromas of mulled wine and roasted chestnuts. If time, visit the gothic cathedral. It houses a number of ancient and contemporary treasures, including Antony Gormley’s famous sculpture of a man who is submerged whenever the crypt floods.
