From murder mysteries to tequila– and hop-fueled rides, themed trains are a runaway success. The Belmond British Pullman, a U.K.-based vintage locomotive, just announced its latest excursion, and it promises to be a “Showstopper” for fans of the Great British Bake Off.
On May 3, 2019, and May 4, 2019, Mary Berry, the former star judge of the show, will host a traditional British afternoon tea aboard the train. According to the train’s website, Berry will kick things off with a meet and greet at the London Victoria check-in lounge, before stepping on-board to share her wealth of baking knowledge.

We are very excited to announce that Mary Berry CBE will be returning to the rails for Afternoon Tea on 3rd & 4th May 2019, find out more: http://ow.ly/DaMq30mIqxR #TheArtOfBelmond
Following a welcome glass of English sparkling wine, guests will be served tea, sandwiches, savory snacks and — of course — a range of sweet, baked goods. Coffee, petit fours, and “surprise gift” from the television judge will round off the excursion.
The Belmond British Pullman has a storied, luxurious history, and prices to match. Seats for both May dates are still available, but the May 3 trip will set you back $390, while the May 4 excursion comes in at $444.
For Bake Off fans, however, there’s no doubt you’ll “enjoy every minute of it.”
