Fay says, "Experience an exquisite luxury train with the British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. With day return journeys to London as well as other favourite cities in Great Britain, step aboard and be taken back to the heyday of great train travel."

About the British Pullman

The Belmond British Pullman takes its name from an American, George Mortimer Pullman, who built The Pioneer in 1864, the first railway carriage designed with true comfort for the passenger. The British Pullman has carried Royalty and Heads of State around Great Britain.

The London luxury train Belmond British Pullman forms part of the route (in the UK) of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, the world's most famous train. Being the sister train to the Venice Simplon Orient-Express lunch and other dining is a very special experience. Most journeys are behind diesel engines; there are some steam trains. The Belmond British Pullman has classic 'orient express' style.

Accommodation

Delight in the elegance of the beautiful vintage carriages of the British Pullman that once ran on the legendary 1920s services such as the Brighton Belle and Golden Arrow. The interior of each carriage is different with exquisite marquetry and plush armchairs. The tables have elegant glasses, crisp linen and beautiful flowers. Each British Pullman carriage exhibits its own history. For example, Minerva has Edwardian-type marquetry, Zena was used in the film 'Agatha', while Perseus was reserved for Royalty, visiting Heads of State and as Winston Churchill's funeral train in 1965.

Carriage plans are here.

The British Pullman is a worthy companion in England to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, on its route from London to the Continent and back.

Catering

Menus on the British Pullman feature the finest seasonal delicacies from the British Isles. Each dish is freshly prepared using ingredients from mainly UK suppliers. Each meal is paired with the finest wines. Special diets are accommodated. Being associated with the Venice Simplon Orient-Express Christmas lunch is, for instance, very special.

Client Review

The event was a great success and we only had very positive feedback from our Swiss partners and UK guests. They all loved the train, the high quality of the food and the exceptional service. The musicians were a great touch - thank you so much for thinking of it. It made the whole event - you were quite right. The two actors also added an element of fun to the proceedings. All in all, an outstanding event which has set the bar for us very high for the future. Thank you also for your kindness and professionalism - it was a pleasure doing business with you.
