Contrary to modern believe, the original Orient Express stopped running in 1977 and its successor ceased servicing in 2009, meaning technically there isn’t an Orient Express train that officially operates by that name. However, with demand just as high now as it was back in 1883 when the Orient Express began, there are many modern alternatives that still use original carriages from the 1920’s and 1930’s meaning you’re still able to experience authentic luxury travel.
Experience a life-changing journey with our 2020 & 2021 Orient Express deals where you will be taken back to an era where luxury and style was everything. Glide through the UK, Europe, Asia or beyond in unrivalled levels of luxury and see some of the most spectacular sights in the world along the way.

There are two main Orient Express style trains in the UK, the Belmond British Pullman and the Northern Belle. Both offer exceptional opulence and exquisite cuisine aboard all of their journeys, but differ in terms of dates, journey types and departure locations and make up some of the best Orient Express deals in the UK.
The Northern Belle departs from various stations all over the UK on round trips back to your original departure point. Famous for ‘at leisure’ style journeys, the Northern Belle is a relaxing train that also visits popular events such as Cheltenham, Christmas Markets, Flower Shows, London Theatre Shows and many more. Offering some of the most affordable Orient Express Deals, the Northern Belle allows you to experience the Orient Express right from the UK.
The Belmond British Pullman on the other hand only departs from London Victoria. Many of our passengers choose to make a weekend out of their journey and stay in London the night before. The British Pullman offers journeys where you stay aboard for the entire journey, usually enjoying sumptuous cuisine as you watch the glorious British countryside glide by, as well as journeys where you stop at a location for a few hours where you can explore by yourself.
Both are exceptional in every possible way and offer some of the lower-cost options for those wishing to sample what it was like aboard the Orient Express. These journeys are ideal as gifts or for treating someone special.

The cheapest way to experience an Orient Express style luxury train would be to book a day trip in the UK. While these trains won’t offer your own private accommodation, nor the exotic sites across Europe, Asia and beyond, you will still experience unrivalled levels of luxury aboard a genuine Pullman-style carriage.
A cheap Orient Express deal doesn’t mean holding back on luxury. Stepping aboard the Northern Belle or the Belmond British Pullman, some journeys can cost as little as £200 per ticket and still offer the same level of luxury you would experience for journeys ten times the cost. These lower cost journeys tend to be round-trips aboard the train without stopping, but you’ll still be served exquisite cuisine, usually in the form of a lunch or afternoon tea rather than a multiple-course dinner.
These journeys are perfect as gifts for special occasions or treating someone special.
