Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Europe Great railway journeys

Experience the golden age of travel

Introduction

Our curated collection of luxury rail journeys take in the very best of Europe, blending elegance and refinement with the chance to explore the Continent's spectacular landscapes and city greats. Browse our selection of journeys below, or call our luxury rail holiday specialists for expert advice and the latest offers.

Our favourite has to be the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, a train that conjures up the sheer glamour of the roaring twenties, Art Deco opulence paired with the very best in white-gloved service and destination-inspired dining. Perhaps take its classic route from London to Venice, or step off the beaten tracks with a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Istanbul or a luxury weekend away in Prague, Berlin or Verona.


Alternatively, the the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express ventures further afield, cosseting guests in suitably grand style across the vast landscapes of Russia and across the Mongolian steppe. Or, you might prefer to stick closer to home, riding the rails through Norway's fjords on the famous Flåm Railway, on the El Transcantábrico in Spain or through the verdant landscapes of Ireland aboard the Belmond Grand Hibernian.
