There really is something special about travelling by train. And, there are few trains more special than the Belmond British Pullman. Decked out in its traditional cream and umber livery, this icon of UK rail travel has hosted royalty and film stars, and its immaculately restored and individually styled carriages, with their rich fabrics and detailed marquetry, are as recognisable today as they were during the train’s heyday of the 1920s and 30s.
