Belmond is unveiling a swath of Family-Travel opportunities on both Belmond British Pullman and at Belmond’s Peruvian properties, timed with the release of Paddington 2. You are sure to love these brilliant integrations between the properties and the trains that bring an unmatched sense of enjoyment for families looking for a train adventure…
In celebration of the release of PADDINGTON 2 on January 12, 2018, Belmond announces steam-hauled Paddington Afternoon Tea journeys aboard Belmond British Pullman, the very train that plays a starring role in the sequel of the firm family favorite. The new journeys bring the magic of Paddington’s adventures to London’s favorite train.
Departing from London Victoria Station on December 2, 2017 and February 16, 2018, and April 7, 2018; Belmond British Pullman is set to be hauled by steam locomotive Tornado, which stars alongside the train in the movie, taking families on a Paddington-inspired Afternoon Tea adventure. Tornado, a Peppercorn class steam locomotive, hauls the 1920s and 30s carriages on various journeys throughout the year and they come together to give families a journey of a lifetime for two dates only.
Fit for both children and accompanying adults, the Afternoon Tea menu includes many sweet treats and marmalade sandwiches as well as live musical entertainment on board. For each adult traveling, one child under 16 travels free; rates begin at $721 for a group of two adults and two children for the afternoon.
Belmond British Pullman, one of Belmond’s eight luxury rail experiences, travels from London Victoria Station throughout the year, offering unique day journeys to iconic locations across the country. In addition, the train also hosts a series of pop-up culinary events with some of the country’s top celebrity chefs.
Meanwhile in Paddington’s home country of Peru, Belmond has created new four- and seven-night packages that include family-friendly activities such as bear-shaped cookie making, a Paddington-themed movie-under-the-stars night, afternoon tea in a secret garden, and of course plenty of marmalade to go around. Rates begin at $3,158 per person for the four-night package, and $4,804 per person for the seven-night; both offers include stays at Belmond properties across Lima, Peru, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley as well as select meals and domestic transfers.
