One does not need to be a locomotive enthusiast to appreciate the grand entrance of a Steam Locomotive into London’s Victoria station. The beautifully presented carriages gleam as the Belmond British Pullman Steam Locomotive is the only way to travel in style! You will be welcomed with a sparkling Bellini and shown to your luxurious armchair seat inside one of the fantastic art-deco carriages. Admire your surroundings as you await the arrival of your delicious Three-course lunch, served to you at your table. Sip on morning tea or coffee, and enjoy the ever-changing views from your window, as you travel to Stratford-upon-Avon.
Over 800 years’ worth of history awaits your arrival as you pull into Warwick Parkway, your private guide awaits to take you to the home of Shakespeare’s mother-Mary Arden. The centre of Stratford is the next destination, to visit Shakespeare’s birthplace, which was also his childhood home. There may also be some time available to explore the town at your own pace. Once you have made the short walk to Stratford-upon-Avon station, the stewards are waiting to welcome you back aboard with a glass of Champagne. Settle in your seat, your four-course dinner will soon be served, along with a bottle of specially selected wine. As you relax, and remember your day, sip on coffee or tea as you are taken back to London by Steam!
