Luxury Rail Journeys

Spectacular journeys on and off the beaten track

Introduction

Step back in time to another era and watch the world go by on a luxurious great railway journey. Inspired by the great train journeys of the age of steam, a luxury train journey is a tour de force of leisure, style and romance.

Journeys on the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express include the classic route between London and Venice via Paris, and an epic six-day trip from Venice or Paris to Istanbul via Bucharest, Budapest and Vienna. Perhaps hop across the pond and board the Rocky Mountaineer, where gourmet dining and top-class cabins pull you away from the spectacular landscapes of Canada's Rocky Mountains and national parks. 

Other popular luxury rail journeys include the Eastern & Oriental Express that links Bangkok to Singapore via the lush Malaysian surrounds, or the Maharajas’ Express which visits the major sights of India. Then, Down Under, the Indian Pacific’s cross-country epic between Perth and Sydney via Australia’s spectacular Blue Mountains is not to be missed, while in Africa Rovos Rail ferries passengers in  unmatched style across South Africa, and into Namibia and Tanzania.
