Brand new for 2018

First Class Pullman Service

on Santa Express

Step aboard the historic Devon Belle this Christmas and spoil yourself with the romance of a bygone era, travelling in style aboard our brand new First Class Pullman service.
​A glass of bubbly will be served on your arrival followed by complimentary mulled wine, mulled apple juice, hot chocolate and a selection of soft drinks during your trip. We will also serve a delicious selection of savoury and sweet canapes whilst you discover the romance of the rails travelling alongside the stunning Torbay coastline, through the Devon countryside and along the River Dart.
You will board the First Class Pullman carriage at Queens' Park Station, Paignton where your dedicated onboard steward will look after you for the duration of the experience - and Father Christmas will visit during the trip with gifts for children (aged up to 14years).
The historic Devon Belle, built in 1917 and one of only two remaining in the world, has recently been carefully restored and was "relaunched" in the spring of 2018 to celebrate her 100th year in service!
This is a luxury experience so feel free to go to town and dress up!!
