Venice Simplon Orient Express London to Venice

Depart from London for an unforgettable overnight journey to Venice

A truly exceptional journey that takes you from London to Venice aboard one of the most luxurious trains in the world, the Belmond Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. A journey like this is ideal for those who want to take a step back in time to the Golden Age of travel where opulence and elegance is everywhere you look.

Once aboard, you are shown to your private accommodation before a four-course dinner is served in one of the dining cars by the talented French chefs on board. After dinner, retire to the bar car to converse with fellow passengers, before retiring to your cabin.

The next day, breakfast is served in your cabin at a time to suit you. Watching the mountains glide past, you have plenty of time to while away in the comfort of your own room before making your way to the bar car to chat to follow passengers. Enjoy a three-course lunch served in one of the dining cars, before spending time how you wish exploring the train, reclining in the bar car or in your own cabin. Pastries are served in the afternoon before arriving at Santa Lucia station where your journey concludes.
