The ultimate in luxury train holidays

There’s nothing more evocative of the indulgences of yesteryear than a luxury rail journey, holidays for exploring the world at a slower pace. It’s the chance to watch the Alps drift by from your private cabin, sip cocktails in the bar car and dine on multi-course fineries in the mahogany restaurant carriage.

Of course, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express remains the icon, with its sister train – the Eastern & Oriental – bringing its success to the Far East. But, there’s plenty of further options available, all tried and tested by our rail experts. Below, you’ll find everything from Japanese bullet trains and transcontinental Australian delights to the granddaddy of rail journeys – the luxurious Golden Eagle, of Trans-Siberian fame. This is the ultimate collection.
