Carriages - Belmond British Pullman

Delight in the elegance of the beautiful Belmond British Pullman carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express that once ran on the legendary 1920s services such as the Brighton Belle and Golden Arrow. Each carriage interior 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.
