Train holidays are the best way to see the world in the most luxurious and relaxed way possible. From the very moment you board the train, you are transported into unrivalled levels of comfort only comparable with a five star hotel. With spacious, elegant private cabins, beautifully authentic carriages as well as bar and even a spa car, a holiday by rail is the most luxurious way to travel.
All meals, entry to every destination and 24 hour steward service are all included in the price of your ticket. A train holiday really is the most convenient way to travel as once you have paid your ticket, you never need to take out your wallet for the duration of the journey.
A holiday by rail lets you really enjoy your time. As you travel, you relax in your cabin, explore the train or converse with fellow passengers in the lounge. Unlike a cruise where you travel round a country, or a plane where you travel above, a train holiday you travel through meaning you really take in everything that country has to offer.
LuxuryTrainTickets.com offers train holidays all over the world. Travel across Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, Asia and beyond on board some of the world’s most luxurious trains.
Choose the Venice Simplon Orient Express, sister to the original Orient Express luxury train. The Royal Scotsman with its onboard spa that transverses across Scotland. Or the Grand Hibernian that explores the Emerald Isle. Every journey you choose promises to be exceptional in every possible way.
The single best way to discover Europe is with a train holiday. Travel by rail from one country to the next in optimum comfort and even make stops along the way to areas of beauty. A journey like this really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The classic way to see the world in style, a train holiday in Europe allows you to see a lot of the continent all in a single journey. Unlike flying where you of course aren’t able to admire the view or a cruise where you may only see the shoreline, a train holiday lets you take in the ever-changing landscape as you travel from one destination to the next.
As you recline with a cocktail in hand, either in your private cabin or in the lounge, watch as snow-topped mountains turn to forest, lakes and rolling hills. With most opting to get to their destination as quickly as possible, many miss this opportunity to travel a little slower and really enjoy the view.
Europe train holidays travel between the main beauty spots of the continent. With a variety of choices one can plan a much larger trip surrounding a holiday on the rails. Most journeys are only one-way, but it is possibly to simply book the return journey and enjoy the same journey in reverse to take you back home.
If you are travelling from London, you will be lucky enough to experience two luxury trains. From London to Calais, you’ll board the Belmond British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon Orient Express. This added extra bonus allows you to experience both a luxury day train and your eventual sleeper train.
The train of choice for your European train holiday is the Belmond Venice Simplon Orient Express. Sister train to the original Orient Express, the VSOE took an alternative route to Venice, via the Simplon tunnel, which is where it was given its name.
Featuring beautifully restored carriages, each with a unique interior, exploring the train is a must during your journey. Every carriage has its own name and its own unique character, but the one thing they all have in common is the exquisite attention to detail.
Offering a wide range of private cabins, you are spoilt for choice. While every cabin is surprisingly large offering ample space to enjoy the journey in private if you so wish, the Venice Simplon Orient Express Grand Suite is the ultimate accommodation.
Just three Grand Suites are available, each with unique décor and their own beautiful en-suite. With enough space for a large double bed and separate seating area, the Grand Suite is the perfect option for those looking to enjoy every moment of their train holiday across Europe.
