A Belmond British Pullman in Victoria Coach Station

Updated: May 23, 2018

On our way to The London Craft Week we were surprised to see a Belmond British Pullman train between shifts at London Victoria station.


We walked all the way down the platform as this was a rare opportunity to see the grand interiors of the legendary train and get a closer look at the decoration of the carriages. Both exterior and interior looked sumptuous with fine decorative elements and marquetry panels.


Belmond British Pullman consists of Pullman coaches dating from the 1920s to 1950s. They were bought and restored between 1977 and 1982 with the original fittings such brass luggage racks and furnishings sympathetic to the period, art deco-style table lamps and armchairs.
