About

Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | Rail journey

This is the ideal introductory taste of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, where fine dining and cocktail indulgences are wrapped in early-20th-century grandeur and served up by personal attendants. But, this curated itinerary is really three luxury trains in one. You’ll drink in the Home Counties with sparkling wine and a gourmet brunch on the Art-Deco Belmond British Pullman before returning to London in Business-Premier style aboard the Eurostar. In between it all, you’ll be treated to a luxury stay in Paris.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
London to Paris

Beginning at London Victoria, you’ll have some time to relax in the exclusive Orient Express lounge before the white-gloved stewards see you aboard another icon of railway heritage – the Belmond British Pullman. Although resplendent throughout in plush armchairs and antique marquetry, each carriage has a story of its own, from the oriental carvings of the Queen Mother’s favourite to the Grecian mosaics of Churchill’s funeral car. It’s all taken in with a Bellini cocktail and gourmet three-course brunch as the Kent countryside sweeps by. Then, after a channel-tunnel hop, it’s time to board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. After settling in with a glass of sparkling wine as rural France rolls by, you’ll be treated to a four-course dinner, with the likes of Brittany lobster and Mont St Michel lamb presented among the black lacquerwork of the dining cars. Perhaps cap it all off with a piano-accompanied drink in the impeccably Art-Nouveau bar car. Fully satiated, you’ll arrive into Paris to make the short journey to your luxury accommodation.

Stay: Le Grand Pigalle (Superior) or La Réserve (Deluxe)

Meals: L D

Day 2
Paris

You’ll spend your nights in Paris with either the contemporary chic of our mid-century Superior option or the spa, marbled rooms and personal butlers or an 1800s mansion. Both are superbly located, with all of the French capital’s delights on their doorstep. From the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe to the treasures of the Louvre and the Notre Dame Cathedral, there’s no shortage of big-name sights. But, look beyond the world-famous icons for riverside strolls and dips into winding laneways that bring you between pavement cafés, fine restaurants and undiscovered art galleries.

Stay: Le Grand Pigalle (Superior) or La Réserve (Deluxe)

Meals: B

Day 3
Paris to London

After a final indulgent breakfast, make the short journey to the 19th-century grandeur of Gare du Nord, where you’ll board the Eurostar. Travelling in Business Premier, you’ll enjoy a 10-minute check in, relax in an exclusive lounge and be treated to three-course meal onboard, designed by a Michelin-standard chef.
