Step Back In Time
Belmond British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, embodies everything that was fabulous about the roaring 1920s and ’30s. In their heyday, these authentic carriages formed part of the most famous and luxurious services in Britain – The Bournemouth Belle, The Brighton Belle, The Queen of Scots and The Golden Arrow. Today, each carriage has been lovingly restored and refurbished so that you, too, can experience the glamour of vintage rail travel.

Class of Service
The Belmond British Pullman is a destination in itself, offering day trips and short breaks with stays in fine hotels. There are four different styles of Pullman carriage, seating between 20 and 26 passengers, with various seating combinations made up of tables for one, two, three and four (private compartments). Each carriage is unique, bearing its own name, as well as a colourful history. For instance, the Audrey carriage carried the Queen, the Queen Mother and Prince Philip to review the fleet in 1953, while the Perseus carriage formed part of Winston Churchill’s funeral train in 1965. No journey on the Belmond British Pullman is complete without taking a stroll through the train.
