All aboard the Belmond British Pulman
We tasted the glamour of the Orient Express on a Mary Poppins themed afternoon aboard the Belmond British Pulman over half term. The carriage was just as opulently Poirot-esque as we had hoped it would be and while mums sipped English champagne, little ones were entertained with activity packs, face painting, magic and balloon modelling before tucking into a sumptuous Mary Poppins tea. The next one planned will be based on The Hungry Caterpillar. We tasted some prototypes and they were almost too beautiful to eat. (Only almost!) Date yet to be announced - be warned, it is eye waveringly expensive! belmond.com
