The train

There are 11 carriages on board the Belmond British Pullman, each with its own charm and distinctive personality. Each Pullman carriage has been faithfully restored to its original glory and passengers will love their antique-style marquetry, vintage lighting and heritage upholstery. The Belmond British Pullman consists of Pullman coaches dating from the 1920s to 1950s. Each carriage has a rich history – for example, Minerva boasts fine Edwardian-style marquetry, Zena was used in the film Agatha while Perseus served as famed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s funeral train in 1965.
