Venue Features
The Scene:

Honouring George Mortimer Pullman, the father of luxury train travel, our Pullman carriages are the height of train luxury. Each is individually named with a unique story to tell.

Some have been used extensively by the British royal family. Others have carried luminaries including President de Gaulle and Nikita Khrushchev. Two were part of Winston Churchill’s funeral train.

The oldest carriage, Ibis, dates back to 1925. Others, like Audrey and Vera, survived bomb damage during air-raids over London's Victoria Station in 1940. Since making its first trip in 1982, the splendidly refurbished Belmond British Pullman luxury train has delighted passengers on excursions and weekend breaks. It also carries passengers on the London/Folkestone section of the legendary journey aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express that continues via Paris to continental destinations, including Venice, Prague and Istanbul.

Design:

There are four different styles of Pullman carriage, seating between 20 and 26 passengers with various seating combinations made up of tables for one, two, three, and four (private compartments).
