Recreating the elegant style of a bygone age, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train is rich in opulence and glamour. First introduced at the end of the 18th century, the carriages are now fitted with 1920s decor, with polished brass and wooden marquetry.
The comfortable compartments feature a sofa and small table, a wash basin, luggage rack and electrical sockets. Each compartment is attended to by a personal steward, who can be beckoned at any hour by the ring of a bell. The bar car with its resident pianist and meticulously-restored decor creates an elegant atmosphere in which to enjoy a gourmet menu prepared by skilled French chefs.
In the evening enjoy a four-course dinner prepared by skilled French chefs. The following morning a continental breakfast is served in the privacy of your cabin before crossing the Channel in the afternoon. In Folkestone, board the British Pullman train and tuck into high tea, accompanied by a glass of champagne, as the train travels through the English countryside to London Victoria station.
