“With all the opulence of the Roaring Twenties, a journey on the Orient Express transports you back in time to a world of glamour and decadence.”

The Orient Express experience is one of sheer luxury, as sleek Pullman carriages trek cross-country through glorious landscapes. This is no everyday train ride; this is a journey to be savoured. As soon as you glimpse the navy and gold of the restored carriages, you know it is going to be special. Step aboard and be whisked away to a land of romance and intrigue.

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express operates UK journeys, as well as routes between the three classic destinations of London, Paris and Venice, with other journeys travelling out as far as Budapest, Prague, Stockholm and Istanbul. You can opt for a classic train journey, wherein your accommodation is simply a sumptuous cabin about the train; or an inclusive tour, which includes accommodation in different cities as well.

Life aboard the Orient Express is as opulent as you imagine. You can never be overdressed on board – think black ties and cocktail dresses – elegance is key. Evening-time sees you dine in stunning surroundings, whether in the floral Etoile du Nord restaurant car, in the Cote d’Azure with its Lalique glass panels, or amongst the exotic black lacquer of L’Oriental. After dinner, savour drinks within the intimate setting of the bar car, as the gentle keys of the baby grand piano create an evocative soundtrack.


Your own vintage cabin comes with restored original features. Oak panels draw back to reveal a washbasin, and your bathrobe hangs behind the door ready for visiting the mosaic-tiled lavatory at the end of each cabin. For extra comfort and space, you can reserve a Cabin Suite, made up of two inter-connecting Double Cabins. This gives you the option of using one cabin for sleeping and the other for a living area. For additional comfort and extra space, reserve a Cabin Suite formed of two interconnecting Double Cabins. By day, stretch out and relax with two lounges, while at night a choice of bed configurations are available.


Indulge in a sensational feast aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train. Exceptional European cuisine is freshly prepared in the train’s kitchen by Chef Christian Bodiguel and his skilled team. Fresh ingredients are taken on board at stops along the route. Look out the window and you may spot the chef inspecting lobsters from Brittany, tomatoes from Provence or saltmarsh lamb from Mont St Michel.
