We take a day trip aboard the Belmond British Pullman, a private luxury train with coaches dating from the 1920s, for a ‘money can’t buy’ experience hosted by MK’s new private members’ club, Alpha Club.
There are just some invites that you can’t ignore – and this was one of them. We uncovered the secrets of the roaring 20s aboard the Belmond British Pullman on an unforgettable day trip through the British countryside.
Oh, and while you’re there, you can feast spectacularly as the champagne and fine wines flow. It could only be Alpha.
Epitomising the ethos: ‘Serious business can be fun’, Alpha Club managed to exceed even its soaring expectations with a day out never to forget.
Meeting our fellow passengers at Searcy’s Champagne Bar, St Pancras International, it was hard to believe it was only 10am.
As the bubbles did indeed flow, and delicious breakfast canapes were served, we were entertained by the fine tunes of a four-piece jazz band.
Within an hour we were on the platform of nearby King’s Cross station – the envy of all fellow passengers as we bypassed the modern carriages for the undisputed class and beauty of the Pullman.
As famous today as in the heyday of British travel, stepping on to the Pullman makes you feel every bit as special as the numerous royalty and celebrities who have boarded its carriages.
Sumptuous interiors conceal a wealth of original features, while its staff attend to the passengers with the skill and flair expected of first-class service.
It was impossible not to be carried away by the magic of it all. This is what being a member of Alpha Club is all about.
Access to an unparalleled array of exclusive events and opportunities with likeminded business people, coupled with access to a whole host of services to help you grow – either as an individual or an organisation.
“These opportunities go to all our full Alpha Club Members as well as our MK Club Members, giving our guests the chance to interact with other like-minded individuals in fabulous surroundings with first-class hospitality and service,” explained Angus Dudgeon, Director of Alpha Club.
“On this occasion each of our business heads, including Alpha Property, Alpha Solutions, Alpha Thoroughbreds and Alpha Rewards to name but a few, hosted carriages of their own to give a further insight into what Alpha can achieve for its clients.”
Alpha Club is now open for business in central Milton Keynes at its temporary home of the Holiday Inn. Just like that trip on the Pullman, where the art of travel was perfected, Alpha Club can perfect your business and lifestyle.
