“Step on board and the real world evaporates behind you” – a sentiment often voiced by travellers on the Belmond British Pullman train. Together with its sister train the Belmond Northern Belle, its magnificent period carriages enable guests to experience all the magic of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express without leaving Britain.

Our trip was a great success. The taxi transfers in Paris went without a hitch. The hotel in Zurich was superb. The Accademia in Verona was also v. good with very friendly staff and all very helpful. La Traviata was lovely – amazing acoustics and fabulous costumes. The seats were excellent. Hotel in Montreux had magnificent views over the lake to the mountains. We had a chance to walk some way round the lake the next morning with the weather sunny and bright. Homeward trip v good and no hitches.
