Luxury trains look to serve British travel demand with Summer day-trips and British seasides

With the government roadmap out of locked-down well and truly on its way and abroad travel still looking uncertain, there has been a surge interest for domestic travel and holidays.

One of which is for luxury train travel and Luxury train specialist Belmond is looking to quench the demand for travel by planning a series of summer day-trips from London to some of southern England’s scenic seaside resorts on board the iconic British Pullman.

With roundtrips through the countryside involving champagne afternoon teas or murder mystery adventures.

For those who have been able to save their commuting expenses this would definitely be a ‘commute’ of interest.  In line with current guidelines and regulations of course, the company is hopeful journeys are due to recommence on May 19.

As expected, and by reputation the Pullman experience will involve classic wines and art-deco with introductions to renowned resorts such as Broadstairs, Margate and Whitstable, with a further outing planned to the seaside town of Hastings, close to the site of the famous battle of 1066.
