Join us aboard the Belmond British Pullman

To celebrate our 30th anniversary we are stepping back in time to enjoy the Golden Age of Travel on the famous Belmond British Pullman

The Transylvanian Express - an iconic experience

Travel in style through the beautiful Kent countryside in one of the Belmond British Pullman’s luxurious vintage carriages. Each carriage is unique, with intricate marquetry and art deco designs.

Your evening will start with a champagne reception on board.

Then sit back and relax as liveried stewards care for your every need. Enjoy the Golden Age of Travel dinner at a table set with starched white linen, specially commissioned china and sparkling cut glassware. Experience fine dining with a sumptuous five-course British seasonal table d’hôte dinner including a Great British cheese board, biscuits and chutneys, half a bottle of wine per person, coffee, tea and petits fours.

Marvel at the ever-changing view through your window. Sip champagne, take in the vistas and learn about the train’s history, imagining the famous faces who once passed along the carriages.
