Eight new journeys added to our schedule
We are pleased to announce the addition of eight brand new luxury train journeys onboard the British Pullman commencing in August. Broadening our already highly diverse offering of luxury train journeys, these new day trips all bring something new and unique to our catalogue of excursions.
Our first new journey is a dinner hosted by Raymond Blanc. The celebrity chef himself will be taking passengers on a special culinary journey as he provides a multiple-course tasting menu complimented with fine wines and champagne. Meanwhile, the British Pullman will take scenic route cross country offering the ideal backdrop to this special journey.
Four new luxury day trips to the seaside have been added for that authentic British tradition to escape to the beach and what better way to visit the seaside than onboard the British Pullman. Visiting Broadstairs, Whitstable, Hastings and Margate, these new journeys offer a day out to a picturesque seaside town onboard one of the most luxurious trains in the world.
Another addition is to popular destination, Winchester. Set in late summer rather than Christmas, this latest journey gives passengers the afternoon to explore this city at leisure. With so much to offer, this trip promises to be a memorable one.
