Itinerary: Venice Simplon-Orient-Express - London to Venice

As you board the gleaming carriages of the Belmond British Pullman train at London Victoria station mid-morning, your steward will show you to your reserved seat. Sit back and enjoy a superb lunch as you travel throughout the Kentish countryside. On arrival at Folkestone, you will be escorted onto the coach transfer through the Channel Tunnel. Once in France, the luxury navy and gold Continental Wagons-Lits of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train will be waiting to whisk you across the country and into Switzerland.

Throughout your journey to Italy, you will be attended by your own personal Steward. After you have settled into your comfortable private cabin it will soon be time to dress for dinner. Why not sip a pre-dinner cocktail before making your way to one of the magnificent restaurant cars? Here you will be served a delicious four-course dinner, prepared by the train’s skilled French chefs. After dinner you may want to linger in the bar car, listening to the sound of the baby grand piano. When you are ready, retire to your cabin, which has now been transformed into a cosy bedroom.

Breakfast is served in your cabin at a time to suit you. Spend the morning in the Bar Car chatting to fellow guests over coffee and admiring the breathtaking Alpine scenery as it passes by the window. Enjoy a leisurely three-course lunch served in another of the beautiful restaurant cars as you journey through Innsbruck. While away the afternoon with a visit to the on board Boutique to purchase souvenirs, or relax in your cabin and watch the world go by outside. Afternoon tea will be served in your cabin as you travel through the Brenner Pass, then all too soon it will be time to prepare to disembark as the train makes its descent through the Dolomites and into Italy. Later, afternoon tea is served in your cabin as you travel through the Brenner Pass, then prepare to disembark as the train crosses the Venetian Lagoon and pulls into Santa Lucia station at around 18:00.
