The Train

Each of the carriages that form the Palace on Wheels was designed for use by India's Royalty, Heads of State and the Viceroy of British India from the mid-nineteenth century onwards. When India gained independence in 1947, Indian Railways discontinued the use of these exquisitely decorated rail carriages. They were returned to service in January 1982 as the Palace on Wheels; an award-winning luxury heritage train which offers the modern-day traveller an unforgettable journey from Delhi through the beautiful provinces of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

The Carriages

Stay in an air-conditioned saloon, where you find comfortable beds, an en-suite bathroom featuring excellent amenities, and specially designed carriages. As well as a carriage attendant to attend to your every need. Delight in the passing landscape of India through the large windows, relaxing as you enjoy the relative splendour of this wonderful train.


On board your marvellously colourful train, discover the most beautiful sights of India. Start your tour in Delhi, before heading off to Jaipur. Ranthambore is where you might have the chance to spot a rare tiger, and in Udaipur you may venture across Lake Pichola on a relaxing cruise. From the colourful flora of India to the colourful fauna, visit Keoladeo Ghana National Park in Bharatpur, where you'll discover the fluttering kaleidoscope of the exotic birds of India.


The train benefits from two delightful restaurant cars called 'The Maharaja' and 'The Maharani'. Here, you will find a selection of excellent cuisine from the subcontinent of India, as well as more cultural Rajasthani delicacies. In the bar, choose from a wide range of Indian and international spirits, wines, and beers, and after your meal, relax in the lounge where you can find a television and a CD player for that added touch of leisure.
