You Can Take A ‘Mary Poppins’ Afternoon Tea On This Glam Vintage Steam Train

Celebrate the release of Mary Poppins Returns with this magical luxury train trip.

There’s no stoppin’ the Poppins. The Posh Train experts at Belmond are launching a one-off afternoon tea experience aboard their Belmond British Pullman, giving you the chance to enjoy MP-inspired dishes while you cruise through the Kent countryside.

Pullman Dining

Taking place on February 16, 2019, guests will get to dine in the train’s lovingly restored carriages from the 1920s and 1930s – this ain’t your standard commuter train out of town, for sure. On the menu during your languorous round-trip will be a ‘Practically Perfect’ afternoon tea menu, featuring 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 Cakes

There’ll be a live performance of music from the new film before boarding, and once on-board musicians and magicians will add to the fun.

Mary Poppins Afternoon Tea

These extremely high levels of whimsy don’t come cheap, however – it’s £285 per person, or £142.50 for under-12s. Still, it’s QUITE the fancy treat, so if you like, you can find out more here.

Alternatively (and more affordably!) check out this not-on-wheels Mary Poppins afternoon tea at Aqua Shard, one of the excellent Shard restaurants.
