Princess Elizabeth

Affectionately known as "Lizzie" this locomotive was built in 1933 and named after a then young Princess later to become Queen Elizabeth 11. It is one of the two remaining preserved Princess Royal Class Locos. "Lizzie" played a key role on the Diamond Jubilee celebrations - her whistle signalled the start of the Thames Jubilee Pageant and hauled the Royal Train during the Diamond Jubilee Tour.

Built in 1947 at Brighton for the old Southern Railway, Tangmere was a Battle of Britain Class locomotive that regularly hauled celebrated express trains like The Golden Arrow and The Bournemouth Belle from London to the South Coast.

With six 6ft 2ins driving wheels and weighing 86 tons, Tangmere – named after an RAF world war two airfield near Chichester in West Sussex – notched up more than half a million miles before being withdrawn from scheduled service. Now fully restored in all its glory, a sight to behold!

A copy of the LNER’s old Peppercorn A1 Pacific class locomotives but with extra water capacity and the latest safety electronics, Tornado became the first steam engine built in Britain since 1961 when it left the Darlington Works in 2008 at a cost of £3million.

Given the number 60163, the loco was named Tornado in honour of top gun RAF pilots who flew Tornado jets during the first Gulf War in 1990/91 and proudly displays the crests of former RAF bases at Leeming and Marham next to its nameplates.

Flying Scotsman

To mark the 100th anniversary of Flying Scotsman - the most famous steam locomotive of all time - we’re heading to Edinburgh for a journey of a lifetime on board the Northern Belle.

Flying Scotsman was built in Doncaster, the first locomotive of the newly formed London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). By 1924, when it was selected to appear at the British Empire Exhibition in London, the loco had been renumbered 4472—and given the name 'Flying Scotsman' after the daily 10.00 London to Edinburgh rail service which started in 1862.

Expect iconic design, high-end service and absolute opulence on these luxury train rides around the world

John Bills

Travelling by rail can be one of the most luxurious ways of getting around. And no, we aren’t just talking about the Orient Express (though that is, indeed, very fancy). The world is full of opulent, luxe rail routes – and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are veritable palaces on wheels, whilst others offer dazzling views or fine dining. 

Many luxury train routes are built around packages for travellers, which often include plenty of day trips and stop-offs around every corner. In other words, it isn’t just the train that’s fancy: it’s the entire trip. Here is our pick of the 11 best luxury train routes in the world.

Best luxury train rides in the world

The Eastern & Oriental Express

1.  The Eastern & Oriental Express

The world-famous Orient Express is somewhat incorrectly titled, seeing as it travels around Europe and Europe alone. But this route from Bangkok to Singapore ticks more boxes on the moniker front. It also runs through a stretch of scenery that will take your breath away, if that breath hasn’t already been snatched by the onboard decor and tremendous service. Ancient wonders and cosmopolitan cities collide (not literally) in a blur of exquisite glamour aboard this stunner. Tickets can stretch upwards of $3,000 (£2,450), but you very much pay for what you get. 

Rocky Mountaineer

2.  Rocky Mountaineer

Faultless service, delicious food and comfortable seats are all an integral part of the luxury train experience, but you can’t beat the overwhelming majesty of nature. Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer train understands this, hence the panoramic views, opening up the wonder of the route between Vancouver and Banff for all to enjoy. Sure, economy seats are available, but they don’t come with the views, so go all out and allow yourself this top-notch two-night experience. 

The Deccan Odyssey

3.  The Deccan Odyssey

India knows exactly how to put together a luxury tourist train. A spin-off of the famed Palace on Wheels, the Deccan Odyssey offers six different routes, from the hidden splendour of Gujarat to the natural magic of Maharashtra, but you can’t really go wrong with any of them. It is mind-bendingly expensive (tickets start at $7,320 or £5,980), but who expects low prices to follow the word ‘luxury’? Fools, that’s who. You are basically travelling in a limousine on wheels across one of the world’s biggest countries, after all. 

The Ghan

4.  The Ghan

Australia is a land of iconic travel experiences, and a trip on The Ghan is right up there, a trundling train treat that coasts from Darwin to Adelaide . Keen geographers will realise that the train runs from the very northern tip of Australia to the bottom, making The Ghan a unique way to see the heart of this fantastic nation. There isn’t a whole lot in the centre of Australia (a lot of camels, by the way), but the overwhelming immensity of it all is incredible. The name is a shortened take on the route’s original moniker, The Afghan Express. 

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

5.  Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

When one thinks of luxurious trains, the Orient Express immediately forces its way into the discussion. How could it not? This iconic train has been immortalised in literature, cinema and everything else since it first set off in 1883, covering the distance between Paris and Istanbul (then Constantinople) in less than 76 hours. It was known as the world’s most luxurious train for a reason, all glass panels, refined leather seats and beds that offered the sort of sleep that, yes, travellers can only dream of. Seven historic cars have been renovated for the modern day, bringing the 1800s glamour into the twenty-first century.  

Seven Stars in Kyushu

6.  Seven Stars in Kyushu

Japan’s finest luxury train experience is undoubtedly the Seven Stars in Kyushu, a circular tour from Hakata that runs through Nagasaki and Yufuin over two days. A four-day option is also available, perfect for those who have money to spare and are looking for a seven-star (yes,  seven ) railway experience. Trains in Japan are a thing of wonder, but there is something about the Seven Stars that makes it stand out. It is a gorgeous celebration of Japanese art, from the walls to the cabins to washbasins. 

Rovos Rail

7.  Rovos Rail

Africa’s premium train journey experience is undoubtedly the Rovos Rail, with a variety of trips available covering everything from 48-hour runs to 15-day explorative itineraries. These bespoke trains are a sight to behold, with gorgeous armchairs and all the wine one can handle waiting within. Throw in a stunning dining car, observation decks and a total absence of TV and radio, and you’ve got a nostalgic experience to remember.

8.  The Heritage Palace on Wheels

The Heritage Palace on Wheels (FKA The Palace on Wheels) has 14 luxurious cabins with all the mod cons, but it is the dining section on this beauty that really take the breath away. The food is spectacular in and of itself, but the decor and design make dining on the Heritage Palace on Wheels one of India ’s great romantic experiences. The famous name has since incorporated the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels into its stable, although the insecurity of the past few years has rendered the train’s future somewhat uncertain. Climb aboard while you still can.

9.  The Blue Train

Traversing the 1,600km or so between Pretoria and Cape Town by train is one of South Africa ’s most amazing travel experiences, so why not go all out and embrace the luxury of it all? One of the fanciest trains on the planet, The Blue Train styles itself as a window into the soul of Africa and we’re inclined to agree.  

The Royal Scotsman

10.  The Royal Scotsman

The UK ’s most famous train now exists as an opulent reminder of a very different time. The name remains in use as modern trains hurtle between Edinburgh and London , but those looking to climb aboard the iconic locomotive of yesteryear must dig deep into their pockets and dress to the nines as they do. Still, it is worth it, right? The Flying Scotsman is an exercise in British luxury, a time machine to the nineteenth century through the eyes of a very wealthy traveller indeed.  

11.  Belmond Andean Explorer

South America’s first luxury sleeper train first set off in May 2017, bringing the romance of the rails to this most romantic of continents. The train runs from Cusco (the capital of the Incan Empire, no less) to the white city of Arequipa, showcasing the best of the Peruvian Andes along the way.

Luxury train journey with champagne brunch and five-course dinner coming to Yorkshire

The trips have raked in high demand

  • 12:21, 21 FEB 2022

1947 steam train Tangmere passes through Huddersfield Railway Station en route to Scarborough

Sign up to the Hull Live newsletter for daily updates and breaking news

A luxury train ride is being hosted in Yorkshire with a champagne breakfast and five-course meal.

British Railways steam locomotive Tangmere is taking passengers through the Yorkshire Dales next week.

Tangmere, the giant green engine once pulled legendary boat trains like the Golden Arrow and the Bournemouth Belle.

Read more stories on what's on here.

Named after Spitfire ace Douglas Bader's world war two RAF fighter base in Sussex – it is teaming up with the luxury Northern Belle for the first time on Thursday (Feb 24) to steam across the Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle-Carlisle line.

And now, a full day trip is being hosted on the train - but it comes with a hefty price tag, Yorkshire Live reports .

The 200 tickets for the full-day trip which also includes a champagne brunch followed by a slap-up five-course dinner with wine in the evening sold out within days of going on sale despite a hefty £395 price tag.

Tornado traveling over the Ribblehead Viaduct on its journey from Preston to Birmingham

And local advertising tycoon David Pitts, who bought the Belles 1930s-style Pullman carriages from the iconic Orient Express group, has now organised two more steam-hauled trips from Huddersfield for May and August to cope with the demand.

He said: "We were completely taken by surprise by the demand for tickets but it seems people are desperate to get out and enjoy themselves after being cooped up at home with all the Covid lockdowns.

"Of course part of the attraction of this trip is to see the magnificent engine Tangmere in action. This will be the first time that it has pulled the Belle and we are all excited at the prospect."

The same journey featured on Channel 5's World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys programme last year with actor Bill Nighy describing the Northern Belle as "the Grand Duchess of luxury rail travel."

He raved over the individually-designed, hand-decorated carriages, the gourmet food and the spectacular scenery through Cumbria and the Dales.

Tangmere is a Battle of Britain Class locomotive originally built at Brighton in 1947 for the old Southern Railway.

It was withdrawn from service in 1963 and sent to a Welsh scrapyard after covering 588,269 miles as diesel power began to take over from steam.

But rail enthusiasts rescued the engine from being turned into pots and pans and painstakingly restored it so it can now pull heritage trains on the mainline network.

The Northern Belle will depart Huddersfield at 8.45am next Thursday, February 24.

Train buff Mike Elliott said: "As I live alongside the railway in Marsden, I looked at various live steam websites to check on its route and timings so that I could watch it, if it was coming this way.

"Unfortunately, I found that although the Northern Belle rolling stock is coming through Marsden, it will be hauled by a diesel engine all the way up to Carnforth, where Tangmere will take over.

"On the return journey, Tangmere is taken off at Preston and replaced by the diesel engine for the rest of the journey back via Huddersfield to Leeds.

"If people want to still see the Northern Belle coaches going through Marsden, timings are 08:57 on Platform 2, returning via Platform 1 at 20:42."

The other two Tangmere-hauled trips over the Settle-Carlisle line will be on May 14 and August 6.

However, travelers can also purchase a standard adult ticket, known as the Glacier Express classic , which begins at 159 Swiss Franc, or around $179, for the entire route.

If you can, Luescher suggests trying the Glacier Express twice — once in summer and once in winter — as the landscape is completely different in both seasons.

South Africa’s Blue Train has a two-year waitlist.

South Africa's Blue Train is one of the world's most sought-after rail experiences; it currently has a waitlist of two years, Luescher told BI.

The two-night, or around 31-hour route, spans 1,600 kilometers, or around 994 miles, between Pretoria and Cape Town, according to the global tourism operator Audley Travel .

According to Luescher, tickets begin at $1,499 and include a luxury butler and fine dining.

Japan's Twilight Mizukaze has live music and a unique menu.

The Twilight Mizukaze , also known as the Twilight Express, offers various routes around western Japan. The train is known for its Art Deco-inspired decor and observation decks that allow passengers to view landmarks, national parks, and striking viaducts.

Guests are treated to live music and a food and drinks menu sourced from local ingredients that are specific to each route.

Tickets range between $2,800 and $5,500 and must be purchased in Japan, according to Luescher. Each journey hosts 34 passengers and there's often a waitlist spanning six months or more, Luescher added.

Belmond's British Pullman is beloved by royalty.

luxury train journeys from hull

Step aboard Belmond's British Pullman train for the quintessential British experience. Some restored parts of the train date back to the 1920s, according to the website, and over the years it has been boarded by members of the royal family including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Harry .

Guests are treated to live cabaret performances and afternoon tea on board. Routes vary and prices for 2024 journeys begin at £400, or around $510.

Experience the US and Canada on the opulent Rocky Mountaineer.

luxury train journeys from hull

The Rocky Mountaineer offers luxury train rides across western Canada and the American southwest and is best known for its glass-dome windows offering panoramic views of major landmarks.

Prices for the Rocky Mountaineer's 2024 packages begin at $1,500 and depend on the journey's length and the type of package purchased . For example, the Gold Leaf service includes additional luxury perks, such as unlimited drinks and menu dining. In contrast, the Silver Leaf service includes pre-selected meals in the ticket price.

Belmond's Venice-Simplon Orient Express has various routes across Europe.

luxury train journeys from hull

The Venice-Simplon Orient Express has hosted a range of versatile guests through the years, from ambassadors and royals to authors and spies.

Like Britain's British Pullman train, parts of the train date back to the 1920s, and each carriage's classic interior will make guests feel as though they've stepped back in time. The train offers routes from major European cities including Amsterdam, Rome, and Venice.

Ticket prices vary. For example, an overnight stay in one of the train's grand suites begins at £10,165, or around $13,000, and includes 24-hour butler service, unlimited champagne, and private in-cabin dining. Meanwhile, an overnight stay in a historic cabin, or a standard cabin, begins at £3,530, or around $4,500.

Luescher told BI that this train is "extremely popular" among their clients and that it's common for some people to rent out a full carriage or the entire train.

"This is a great idea for a very special private event, if you have the money to do so of course," Luescher said.

"The experience itself is much more than just a train ride, it's a journey back in time to the opulence and style of the Golden Age/Art Deco era," they added.
