A luxury journey for SouthEastern commuters



The majority of commuters across the south east of England and neighbouring counties dread their daily work commute, however last Thursday commuters in Ashford, Kent experienced a life of luxury.

The normal SouthEastern 7:34AM Ashford to London train had been replaced by a luxury vintage Belmond British Pullman train. For those that don't sport an anorak, pencil or clipboard at weekends the Belmond British Pullman is the 'sister' of the Venice Simplon-Orient Express.

Honouring George Mortimer Pullman, the father of luxury train travel, Pullman carriages are the height of train luxury even when pushing a century in age. Commuters were treated to a three-course breakfast accompanied by live music, a celebration in true 1920s style bringing the train's history to life.
