The Golden Age of Travel is a luxury train journey on the British Pullman, that offers the most authentic vintage train experience, similar to an Orient Express experience. Immerse yourself in the glamour and the magic of 1920s vintage train travel on the spectacular British Pullman train.

As the British Pullman train pulls into London Victoria Station, take this opportunity to take photographs of this stunning locomotive as it gleams. Then it is time to board and take part in an adventure similar to an Orient Express experience aboard the infamous British Pullman steam train. Fine dining is at the heart of this luxury train day trip, your steward will be on hand to guide you to your immaculately set table. Now sit back and imagine your back in the 1920s on an Orient Express train journey, admire the 1920s art deco vintage carriage and through your window take in the views of the Surrey Hills.

On this The Golden Age of Travel journey on the British Pullman, you will be welcomed aboard with a Champagne reception, before your sumptuous five-course lunch is served. This silver service fine dining meal includes a British seasonal table d’hôte menu including Great British cheese board, biscuits and chutneys.

If you’ve ever dreamt of partaking in an Orient Express-style journey, this day trip on the British Pullman will not disappoint.

Please note: Due to the antique nature of these steam engines, there is always a chance that they may cease to work before your journey takes place. Belmond will always do everything they can to get the engines fixed but if they can't source a replacement or an engineer, the journey may have to be diesel hauled. You will be offered compensation by Belmond for the change and the option to rebook.
