What can I expect on the day
Given today's packed commuter trains, you might think luxury train journeys are a thing of the past - but thanks to the Northern Belle excursions from Belmond, you can roll gracefully away from the platform to an era that harks back to the golden age of rail travel in the 1930s on a fabulous day excursion.
These luxurious train journeys depart from the stations in the Midlands, the North East and the North West taking you on a fantastic train experience through the breathtaking British countryside to the liked of London, Chester, York, Bath, and Edinburgh. On arrival there's plenty of time to stretch your legs and have a wander around to see the sights, visit a museum or two, or even partake in a bit of shopping. It's entirely up to you how you spend your afternoon.
But for us, it's all about the incredible onboard experience. Standing on the platform waiting for the arrival of this deluxe train, there is an air of expectancy and excitement. As the carriages glide into the station, prepare to feel like royalty for the day as the friendly stewards welcome you aboard.
As you settle into your comfortable armchair, the dedicated onboard team will provide you with a welcoming Bellini to toast your special day. Sit back and enjoy the views from the panoramic window as brunch is served.
After your excursion, return to the train and prepare yourself for an evening of fine dining as a four course, Michelin-standard meal is served. All dishes are created onboard in the compact galley kitchens using seasonal produce. The attention to detail in the service is second to none.
Each year Belmond offers a variety of luxury train journeys that prove to be incredibly popular, we advise booking well in advance. We think a voyage on Belmond's famous Northern Belle is the perfect blend of old-fashioned luxury, modern cuisine and impeccable service that's sure to make this excursion one to remember.
