Travel back in time
LOSE yourself in the romance and magic of 1920s train travel on a spectacular steam-hauled journey.
Take photographs of the immaculate, gleaming steam locomotive while it is stationary at London’s Victoria Station. Then it is time to board the famous Belmond British Pullman train for a fine-dining experience like no other.
Your steward will help settle you at your table, which is set with fine linen and bespoke tableware. Take time to admire the magnificent marquetry and art deco flourishes of your vintage carriage.
As your gastronomic journey through the Surrey Hills begins, your steward will take care of all your needs. Sip champagne, marvel at the ever-changing views through the window and the plumes of steam trailing through the sky.
In 1990, a charitable trust was formed with an extraordinary ambition: to build a brand-new Peppercorn A1 Pacific steam locomotive from scratch, as no working example survived. After 19 years, in 2008, No 60163 Tornado moved under its own steam for the first time. The engine is fully equipped for today’s mainline railway.
