Start from home and head East, all the way to beautiful Budapest!

Trip Description
London to Budapest – exactly what it says on the tin!

Start your 1 week rail trip in the UK’s buzzing capital, London. A metropolis of almost 8 million people, London is the beating heart of the UK, home to the nation’s finest museums, theatres, food and sightseeing.

Get in touch if you’d like to customise this route and start your trip in style by spending a couple of nights here before heading over to the continent via Eurostar.

Arrive fresh and ready to explore the French Capital. By day, tick off the classics: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the stunning Champs Elysees and the Louvre. By night, settle into a cosy pavement cafe with a glass of French wine or local beer and drink in the atmosphere of Paris.

From here, head East into Germany to the Bavarian capital of Munich. Famous for beer gardens, green parks, grand Gothic buildings and, of course, Oktoberfest – Munich is a perfect bridge between East and West. You’ll certainly start to feel the Eastern European influence when it comes to the price of your pints… Spend an easy day exploring this gracious city before relaxing in one of the many traditional beerhalls.

Continue along the picturesque Danube to reach Budapest, the alternative little sister to Berlin. Take in its stunning architecture, friendly locals, and cool ruin bars – there’s no place like it! Be sure to get the locals to tip you off about the best of Budapest’s famous spas for a quick pamper session. You’re going to need the relaxation before rounding your last night off with a toast of the local wine, Tokaji…
