Seasonal journeys aboard the Orient Express

Date Posted: 03/09/2012

Throughout December, the British Pullman and Northern Belle Orient Express trains offer a host of seasonal journeys that include trips to some of Britain’s best Christmas markets, carols at historic cathedrals, shopping events and festive fare.

Christmas shopping on the rails

Departing on the 6th December, a shopping experience will run on the British Pullman, where a selection of luxury British brands will be showcasing their top seasonal gifts and products throughout the various carriages.

Experts from each of the brands will also be on hand to offer advice and provide top tips on this season’s must-haves.

In-between browsing through the wide selection of gifts and shopping time, a four-course Christmas lunch, prepared by the onboard team of chefs will be served with champagne and wine.

Carols at Canterbury Cathedral

Group travel organisers can head to historic Canterbury Cathedral on the vintage carriages of the British Pullman on 11th or 18th December, and watch the cathedral choir perform in a candle-lit crypt.

The carol service is followed by the opportunity for some Christmas shopping, before returning to the train for a four-course dinner served with champagne and wine as you are taken back to London.

Christmas meals onboard

The Northern Belle will host a Christmas dinner, departing on 6th December from Edinburgh and on 12th December from Ipswich and Norwich, offering an alternative for a festive evening out.

Adding to the festive trips in the schedule, a selection of Christmas lunches onboard the British Pullman and Northern Belle are also available during December.
