Historic Shrewsbury at Leisure

Southampton, Winchester

The Experience

Sit back and unwind as liveried stewards take care of your every need. Marvel at the ever-changing views through your picture window as the train journeys into Shropshire.

A fine dining experience awaits in your beautiful carriage, evoking the glamour of the 1930s “Belle” trains. Each of the train’s seven carriages is named after a British castle or stately home and individually decorated.

Sit back and relax at your elegant table, which is set with bespoke china, sparkling glassware and immaculate linen. Liveried stewards will serve you a delicious Bellini brunch and take care of all your needs.

Arriving in Shrewsbury, you will have an afternoon to explore at leisure. The medieval border town offers a wealth of heritage attractions, delightful shops and cafes. The town boasts more than 600 listed properties with black and white timbered building lining the medieval passageways known locally as the "shuts." The River Severn runs through the heart of the town; a riverside walk or boat cruise is highly recommended.

Return to the train after your afternoon of discovery and enjoy a champagne reception on board. Soon you can look forward to a gastronomic five-course dinner, served with our sommelier’s choice of wine.

Savour your dinner, chat with your travel companions and marvel at the ever-changing views on the homeward stretch. Perhaps take time to stroll through the other carriages, admiring the decorative flourishes that make this luxury train unique.
