Join us aboard the Belmond British Pullman

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are stepping back in time to enjoy the fabulous festive season on board the iconic carriages of the British Pullman.

The Transylvanian Express

The adventure begins from the moment you step aboard at London Victoria station. Meet your liveried stewards and explore the bedecked vintage carriages as the evening’s celebrations get underway with a champagne reception.

Savour the magic of Christmas and take a seat in your plush armchair. Take time to admire your surroundings as each carriage is home to unique marquetry and seasonal touches.

Dinner is served at a table set with starched white linen, specially commissioned china and sparkling cut glassware. Your sumptuous five-course dinner, accompanied with wine, has been created by the expert team of onboard chefs using the best seasonal ingredients. Relish each irresistible course, including a Great British cheese board and delicate petits fours.

Revel in the yuletide glamour as the train passes through the winter countryside, raising a toast to the special festivities
