From the magnificence of St Pancras’ Gothic revival Station to the quintessential capital of exotic Africa that is Marrakesh, relax and watch the world slide by, often at astonishing speeds.
Our rail journey through Morocco begins in Tangiers, first port after Europe, launching ‘Al Boraq’ – Lightning – like a flashing rapier, gathering pace along the coast and then striking inland through the grassland hills. Sweeping over viaducts and plunging into underground tunnels, the vibrant coastal capital of Rabat recedes and the coastal plains’ aridity markedly increases.
Within 2¼ hours, Casablanca, heartbeat of the nation, emerges, surprisingly almost as white as promised. Having luxuriated in the magnificence of its sacred sites and the exuberant Habous Quarter, the Marrakesh Express presses you to wend your way south. Desiccated fields and cuttings through the living rock of the saffron Middle Atlas’ sandstone, and haphazard palms or occasional lone olive groves lead to the fabled wonders of Marrakesh.
