London to Istanbul
It’s one of the world’s most iconic rail journeys: London to Istanbul (once Constantinople) through Paris. Agatha Christie’s exciting detective novel Murder on the Orient Express, gave the route a legendary status.
Now, the latest film adaptation starring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Penelope Cruz shows that the route still evokes a sense of grandeur. Athough the service itself doesn’t exist anymore, it’s still possible to travel by rail from London to Istanbul.
