Luxury Rail Holidays

  1. Overview

It's often suggested by those in the know that travelling by train evokes the true golden age of travel from a time where things were just a little more stylish; and frankly, we couldn't agree more.

Is there anything more romantic than boarding a luxurious train in one place, to enjoy fine dining and silver service while the world passes by your window? To fall asleep to the gentle rhythm of the carriage wheels turning and then to awake the next morning having arrived in a new and exciting place.

We believe that the golden age of rail travel sits firmly in the present, rather than the past and we're delighted to share some fantastic and inspirational journeys with you from the Blue Train and Rovos Rail in Africa to the magnificent Venice Simplon Orient Express in Europe or Eastern and Oriental Express in the Far East.
