TMR RECOMMENDS: Why not extend your holiday and make your journey to Prague by train? You can travel via Erfurt or Nuremberg with an overnight stop (or two) en route.
Nicknamed ‘the City of a Hundred Spires’, Prague has an illustrious history dating back a thousand years. Its medieval castle has been the seat of Bohemian kings, Holy Roman Emperors and to this day, the president of the Czech Republic.
Other attractions include the stunning Old Town with its famous Astronomical Clock as well as the funicular cableway up to Petrin Hill for fabulous city views.
Spend another morning in Prague and then, in the early afternoon, board the magnificent Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for your overnight journey back to London. After a welcome glass of sparking wine, take afternoon tea and pastries in your cabin as you watch the changing scenery pass by your window.
In the evening, it’s time to dress up for a sumptuous 4-course dinner, followed perhaps by a night cap in the inviting bar car before returning to your cabin for the night.
A continental breakfast is brought to you by your steward to enjoy in your cabin today.
Later in the morning, enjoy a sumptuous brunch in the restaurant cars as you travel on towards the English Channel. In Folkestone, the British Pullman is waiting to take you back to London. You will be served a traditional afternoon tea accompanied by a glass of English sparkling wine, before arriving into London Victoria station.
