Great railway journeys

Step back in time and watch the world go by on a luxurious great railway journey. Inspired by the great train rides of the age of steam, and an opportunity for greener travel, holidaymakers around the world are choosing life at a more leisurely, stylish and intimate pace.

Journeys on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express include the classic 32-hour route between London and Venice and an epic six-day trip from Venice or Paris to Istanbul via Bucharest, Budapest and Vienna. The world’s next best-known train, the Trans-Mongolian Express, follows a hundred-year-old route across Siberia and carries passengers through dramatic landscape between Moscow and Beijing.

Other in-demand luxury train journeys include the Maharajas’ Express, which visits the major sights of India, the Indian Pacific’s cross-country ride between Perth and Sydney via Australia’s spectacular Blue Mountains, and Rovos Rail’s Pride of Africa, ferrying passengers across South Africa, and into Namibia and Tanzania.

Our railway holiday specialists are on hand to advise times and dates, along with city breaks to top and tail the rail leg of your trip.
