Brighton and Hove Pride is the UK’s biggest Pride festival and this year sees it celebrate its 30th anniversary. It’s going to be a party you won’t want to miss! 

For those who are going and are looking for a way to really make the occasion truly special, there is now the option to travel in vintage style on board the British Pullman, a Belmond train.

Set to depart from London Victoria on Saturday 6 August, this luxurious train will be led by a ravishing rainbow-decorated locomotive with Belmond pulling out all the stops to celebrate Pride.

Passengers stepping aboard the umber and cream train will get to experience the unique decor of each carriage complete with art deco features including mosaic floors and plush upholstery.

Tables will be laden with crisp linen and bespoke glassware, hinting at the gourmet experience that is to come. Impeccably uniformed stewards will welcome guests by serving peachy Bellini cocktails, to be followed by a simply scrumptious three-course brunch fit for a king or queen.

And what train ride would be complete without some first-class, showstopping, diva-esque entertainment in the form of Drag Race UK superstars Cheryl Hole, Vanity Milan and Kitty Scott-Claus!

Arriving in Brighton, passengers will be able to watch the exuberant floats and flamboyant outfits on show in the LGBTQ Community Parade, which this year is themed: Love, Protest & Unity.

Expect a busy, exhilarating day with over 300,000 people expected to attend over the course of the weekend.

Afterward, guests will be welcomed back on board with a glass of chilled champagne. There will also be a fabulous three-course dinner (with wine) as the train winds its way back to London with Cheryl, Vanity, and Kitty providing further frocks and frolics.  

And British Pullman is delighted to offer Attitude readers a special offer – you can save 10 percent on the ticket price and get a complimentary bottle of champagne by quoting the code: ATTITUDE10 when booking. Subject to availability at the time of booking.
