Venue Features
The Scene:
There are many ways to experience the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, from one-way train journeys between great European cities to inclusive tours with luxurious accommodation included. Our Belmond British Pullman carriages, which have day car seating, will carry you in style between London and the channel (and vice versa), where you will be escorted by our hostesses on to luxury coaches for your shuttle service before boarding the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express in France.
Design:
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express cars are the original 1920s models. Each cabin has a washbasin, hot and cold water, towels, bathrobes and slippers. Many cabins have adjoining doors and can be converted to 'Cabin Suites'. WC's are located at either or both ends of each sleeping car. 
Standout Venue Features:
The bar car named '3674' has a glamorous setting for pre-dinner drinks and cocktails with your fellow guests, or a nightcap before retiring to your cabin. Enjoy the evocative sound of the baby grand piano, played by our resident pianist. You might also want to try the Caviar menu developed in collaboration with world famous caviar producer, Petrossian.
