Belmond British Pullman to Celebrate Christmas with Festive Express

Belmond has unveiled details of its first ever ‘Festive Express’ which will take place aboard the British Pullman.

Departing London Victoria on Saturday, 5 December, the festive journey, in the nostalgic 1920s carriages of the luxury Belmond British Pullman, is set to be filled with music, magic and family entertainment as the train travels through the Kent countryside.

The Big Local Community Choir, from Bermondsey, London will send the train off in style with performances of favourite carols and festive tunes at Belmond’s private check-in lounge at London Victoria.

Aboard the elegant carriages, bedecked with baubles and wreaths, families will be treated to a festive lunch served by livered stewards whilst musicians and magicians keep all ages entertained.

 Belmond has partnered with children’s party experts Sharky and George, who will entertain children with a series of traditional games and crafts along with some seasonal surprises.

The Festive Express journey is part of a varied Christmas programme aboard both Belmond British Pullman and Belmond Northern Belle, sister trains of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

Each December, both UK day trains operate a full programme of Christmas lunch, dinner and day trips to cities such as Bath and Canterbury for carol singing and Christmas shopping.

These festive trips are available between 1 and 19 December departing from London Victoria (Belmond British Pullman) and regional cities (Belmond Northern Belle), such as Bath, Bristol, Chester, Cardiff, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle.

Prices for the Festive Express journey start from £370 per adult and £295 per child and include a decadent festive meal, with children’s options available, Champagne and wine for each adult, entertainment and seasonal surprises for the children.
