A work of art in itself and a true Art Deco icon, the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is one of the world’s most famous luxury trains. Step aboard and experience truly elegant travel, wrapped in timeless romance, as you take the Belmond British Pullman train from London to Folkestone then the Orient Express on to Paris, relaxing in one of the delightful vintage cabins and enjoying gastronomic cuisine. This short trip makes a great present for any anniversary or special occasion and will leave you with so many wonderful memories.
Your luxurious trip begins when you board the elegant Belmond British Pullman at London's Victoria Station. Then sit back and enjoy brunch served with a Bellini as you travel through the lovely Kentish countryside. After crossing the Channel, board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train at Calais. Enjoy a delicious four-course dinner, prepared by the train's team of skilled French chefs. After dinner enjoy entertainment in the stunning bar car before retiring to your cabin, which has now been transformed into a cosy bedroom.
You wake up to the verdant French countryside scenery, as breakfast is served in your cabin at a time to suit you. Take the opportunity to explore the train, perhaps enjoying a cocktail in the Bar Car as the resident pianist sets a sophisticated tone. A leisurely three-course lunch is then served in one of the two beautiful restaurant cars. While away the afternoon, admiring the ever changing view from your cabin window as tea is served before the train arrives at Gare de l'Est station in Paris, where your memorable journey comes to a close.
