Step into the world of Downton Abbey as you journey through the English countryside on the iconic Belmond British Pullman train from London Victoria to Highclere castle

This rail adventure has now sold out, but we have a few other special Belmond British Pullman adventures available. Explore more here.

The ancestral home of the Earl and Countess of Carnavon is being opened up especially for this visit. Take your seat in one of the individual carriages of this vintage train, adorned with intricate marquetry and authentic art deco fixtures and furnishings.

Watch the ever-changing English countryside roll by as you sip a sparkling Bellini and await your silver service, three-course brunch. On arrival to Highclere Castle you will enjoy a private guided tour around one of the most impressive English country houses and, of course, location for the much-loved TV series Downton Abbey. Enjoy time at leisure to wander through the enchanting gardens or the Egyptian Exhibition (the 5th Earl of Carnavon famously discovered Tutankhamun's tomb with Howard Carter).

You will be welcomed back aboard Belmond British Pullman with a glass of Champagne. Sit back and reflect on your day whilst you savour a delicious three-course dinner with our sommelier's choice of wine, coffee and petit fours. You will also enjoy a complimentary bottle of Champagne to enjoy on board or take to home to toast a great day out.
