ARE you and your loved one the most romantic couple in the News Shopper area? If so you could win a luxurious Valentine’s Day treat.

We are offering the prize of a once-in-a-lifetime journey for two on the steam-hauled Valentine's Day Lunch from London Victoria aboard the British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

News Shopper: British Pullman

With its 1920s vintage carriages, the train echoes romance and will take those on board back in time to the era when travelling by train was an elegant affair, setting the perfect scene for a brief encounter.

As the train leaves London Victoria station, sit back and relax as the champagne corks pop and the clink of crystal glasses can be heard before a decadent four-course lunch is served by liveried stewards.

This journey is the ultimate way to spend the most romantic day with a loved one. Find out more about it on the Orient Express website
