Belmond : A Journey On The Festive Express

On Saturday, my 5 year old Hugo and I, were invited on the Festive Express.  It was an epic train journey through the British countryside in a beautiful Belmond British Pullman train (sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express!)  Departing from Victoria, it was packed with festive fun for the little ones, organised beautifully by the ‘ultimate travel curator’ Belmond.


We were met at Victoria by a choir singing us onto our train carriage.

The table settings were super smart and the food was absolutely top notch!

The highlight of the day was the superb entertainment from Sharky and George who jested, joked & entertained there was through the British countryside.  The highlight was the tug of war down the middle of the carriage and Grandmothers footsteps with a sweet scramble at the end.

A very exciting guest turned up on our way back into a London – Father Christmas, ladedn with a large bag of presents for each child. I couldn’t believe how generous he was before the actual big day itself!

The whole day was so fun & spoiling, we are definitely going to go again next year but maybe i’ll take my second son this time – the oldest can’t have all the fun!
