Join us for a journey to Waddesdon Manor onboard the British Pullman, a beautifully restored 1920s vintage luxury train. A day trip to remember, this luxury journey includes a brunch, dinner, all coach transfers, admission to Waddesdon Manor and a guided tour.
With a sparkling Bellini cocktail in hand, you are shown to your comfortable armchair by one of the stewards. As you take your seat, we begin our journey out of London and take a scenic route cross-country to our destination. During this outward journey, you are served a delicious three-course brunch with morning teas and coffees.
After we arrive in Oxford, after a brief coach transfer escorted by staff we arrive at Waddesdon Manor. You are first taken on a guided tour of the wine cellars where you learn about the Rothchild’s wine-making heritage as well as exploring the rest of the house and the gardens. You’ll then have time at leisure to explore the grounds as you wish before we return to the train.
A champagne reception welcomes you back onboard before you take your armchair for the return journey back to London. We take another scenic route cross country, during which you enjoy a three-course dinner with half a bottle of wine followed by tea, coffee and petit fours.
