Rail journeys

Surrender to the cathartic rhythm of rail and the romance of slow travel; now the true definition of luxury in a world that doffs it cap to speed. Watch iconic landscapes like the Scottish Highlands or the Alps roll by before you pull into some of the world’s most famous cities.

In the evening, dress to the nines for a black tie dinner with friends in an elegant mahogany-panelled carriage, or sip sparkling aperitifs at the Champagne bar. Whether you’re on board the Belmond Royal Scotsman or The Blue Train, a luxury rail journey evokes the nostalgia and glamour of a bygone era in every detail.
