Belmond British Pullman arriving into Horsham

News and Blog

Get ready to join St Catherine’s Hospice for an unforgettable trip on a very special train service next spring. The famous Belmond British Pullman, the sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, will be pulling into Horsham on Saturday 18 May 2019.

When you arrive at Horsham station you’ll be met by stewards who will welcome you on board the impressive train headed for Windsor. On your outbound journey, you’ll indulge in a Bellini Brunch accompanied by live music. You’ll then have time to explore historic Windsor, including the Queen’s favourite weekend home, Windsor Castle (entry included) before heading back to Horsham. On your return journey, you’ll be welcomed back on board with a glass of champagne before enjoying an exquisite three course dinner and wine. This bespoke trip has never been available locally before.

A trip on the Belmond British Pullman is a true, vintage pleasure with carriages restored to the former glory of their 1920’s heyday. Over a century ago, George Mortimer Pullman, the father of luxury train travel, realised that his passengers would expect high-quality luxury and comfort when travelling. To make sure his train provided this he instructed the finest craftsman of the time to create in his words, “A Palace on Wheels.”

And today, the Pullman train and its carriages continue to be just that. Giving passengers an exclusive chance to step back in time to an age of glamour and luxury, the Pullman provides guests with impeccable onboard service in an intimate and comfortable environment.

This memorable trip will provide you with a dash of adventure in the English countryside. And it’s an adventure you can feel good about, as it’ll help raise vital funds for local families living with a terminal illness.

Currently St Catherine’s can only care for one in three local people who need their expert end of life care. But with the support of readers like you, in the future, the hospice wants to make sure that nobody in the community faces death and loss alone.

Tickets are £420 per person. Places are strictly limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
