MARY POPPINS RETURNS - AFTERNOON TEA ON BOARD       THE BELMOND BRITISH PULLMAN

In celebration of the release of Disney’s spectacular production of Mary Poppins returns, the luxurious Belmond British Pullman is launching an exclusive ‘Practically Perfect’ inspired afternoon tea on board its vintage 1920s and 30s carriages available for one day only on the 16th February 2019.

 

Guests will enjoy Mr Dawe’s selection of sandwiches, Ellen’s warm goat’s cheese tartlets and a ‘Practically Perfect’ selection of sumptuous cakes and pastries. Mary Poppins Returns activity packs, along with balloon artists, face painters and magicians will entertain the families on board as the train passes through the British countryside.

 

This all new original musical and sequel starring Emily Blunt, Ben Whishaw, Dick Van Dyk, and a host of stars, takes place in 1930s London, 24 years after the first film was set.  Grown up Michael and Jane Banks, Mr Dawes Jr and housekeeper Ellen, and of course Mary Poppins herself, are joined by new characters including Mary’s friend, street lamplighter, Jack and her eccentric cousin, Topsy.

As Mary Poppins returns to 17 Cherry Tree Lane, to help the next generation of the Banks family, back at Victoria Station, Belmond British Pullman guests will be greeted by a live performance of music from the new film before boarding the steam-hauled journey for tea.

 

This quintessential London experience is a magical day out for all the family – youngsters new to the enchantment of Mary Poppins and parents who remember the beguiling nanny from childhood. 

 

Prices for the Mary Poppins Returns inspired Afternoon Tea on 16th February 2019 start from £285 per person for adults and £142.50 for children under 12 - for more information and reservations click on the booking link below.

 

Belmond British Pullman offers a host of journeys throughout the year from London Victoria Station, visiting some of Britain's most famous cities, country houses, sporting and social events.
