Upon arrival at Highclere Castle, you'll enjoy a glass of champagne as you hear an exclusive talk from Lady Carnarvon and Editor-at-Large of Good Housekeeping, Gaby Huddart. Giving you a fascinating glimpse into life living in one of England's most recognisable castles.

You'll then enjoy a private guided tour of the castle with a knowledgeable guide who'll have plenty of insights into the building, artwork and furniture in the ornate State Rooms and Castle Bedrooms. After the tour, there'll be some free time to take a leisurely stroll through the enchanting gardens and explore the Egyptian Exhibition, which details the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter.

After exploring Highclere, you'll return to the Belmond British Pullman, where you'll be welcomed back on board with a glass of Champagne. Sink back into your plush armchair seat and reflect on your day as you indulge in a delightful three-course dinner with wine, followed by coffee and petit fours, before pulling back into Victoria station just before 8pm.
