Belmond is offering four great new seaside rail journeys on the British Pullman and we couldn’t be more excited.
Let’s head to the seaside…
Who needs to go on a rail journey abroad this summer when Belmond are intent on spoiling us? Lucky guests on the British Pullman will get the chance to travel to the ‘Great British Seaside’ by train this summer.
With the train reopening on 19 May 2021, guests will be invited to get on board at Victoria Station. From here they will visit the iconic seaside towns of Margate, Broadstairs, Whitstable and Hastings.
‘We wanted to celebrate the reopening of the British Pullman by creating some exciting new journeys which will allow friends and family to come together and enjoy a breath of fresh seaside air,’ says Gary Franklin, Vice President, Trains & Cruises, Belmond.
A Great Rail Day Out
On the round-trip journey from Victoria Station guests will enjoy a sparkling bellini and a three-course brunch before enjoying a visit to their seaside town. On board at the end of the day, guests will be treated to a delicious three-course dinner on the journey home.
