Sister to the VENICE
We were on 01 March 2019
but we will be going again, so
why not treat yourself or a loved one to a Luxury Away-Day! Let us know if you are interested.
Special personal gifts don’t get much better than this, so why not treat yourself or a loved one to this ‘Once-in-a-Lifetime’ luxury.
As each carriage from the Belmond Orient Express dates from the 1920s and 1930s and is staffed by the Pullman’s famous liveried stewards, you will relish the majestic comfort of a sumptuous armchair whilst admiring the intricate marquetry, woven brass luggage racks, gleaming crystal and silken lampshades that transport you back to a more gracious age. ‘Travel’ was so much more than just simply to arrive!
Whatever the occasion – from a special birthday, a thank you, to an anniversary treat – find out just why the train has such a fabulous reputation. Revel in luxury and nostalgia whilst gliding through the glorious English countryside. Enjoy a delicious freshly prepared 5-course meal served with champagne and wine by attentive, liveried stewards.
A luxury coach (or similar) will whisk you off to London from our local pick-ups. Glamour and excitement builds at Victoria Station in London as you arrive in the Orient Express lounge on platform 2, ready to be met by your personal steward aboard a stately carriage of the Belmond Pullman Orient-Express.
Part of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, it’s the world’s most famous train. With its beautifully restored marquetry, crystal glass and deep upholstered armchairs, the Pullman carriages provide a unique and original setting for all kinds of social occasions, whether celebrating a birthday, anniversary or just your own ‘once in a lifetime’ treat.
This will be our 7th time and everyone has come away with wonderful memories of a wonderful day! As usual, there are only a limited number of places available, but they do go quickly, so book yours now!
If required, payment can be made in three easy payment over several months. See online booking form below for details

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.Maureen Colyer
Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.Linda Hunt
Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery TourSue & Bert Barnes
