A clash of colour, culture, cuisine: India is vibrant and full of life. It’s also vast, and its size and varied scenery lends itself perfectly to train travel. Discovering the treasures of this charming country is high on many bucket lists for good reason, there are so many once-in-a-lifetime destinations it can be hard to fit them in on one trip but travelling by train means you only need to unpack once as you speed between breath-taking sights.

Gaze in awe at the Taj Mahal in Agra, its gleaming marble basking under clear blue skies. Wonder around the painted Amber Fort in Jaipur, home to ambling elephants and mirrored palaces. Catch a glimpse of the rare, beautiful tiger in Pench National Park. Along the way, sample delicious cuisine that varies across the states: creamy coconut curries in Mumbai and fiery deep-fried kachoris from Udaipur. It’s an adventure for your palate.

Train Journeys though India

Shimla Toy-Train

Perched amid the soaring peaks of the Himalayas, the land of Shimla is the gateway to the foothills of this most majestic mountain range, where green valleys conceal a variety of wildlife, lakes shimmer in the sun and fine colonial houses hark back to the days of the Raj. Once the preserve of the Viceroys, Shimla became a popular holiday destination for escaping the sweltering Indian summers, with travellers making their way via the famous Kalka-Shimla railway. Travel on board the Himalayan Queen as she rattles along the 96km of track, taking in the hundreds of bridges and tunnels as well as the impressive views.
