Belmond Northern Belle Luxurious Trains

Evoking the opulence of 1930s rail travel, this luxurious yet intimate train traverses the glorious countryside en-route to some of Britain’s top destinations.

Travel in one of seven beautifully detailed carriages, each bearing the name of a great British castle or stately home.

The superb onboard cuisine is just as exquisite, created using locally sourced ingredients and paired with fine wines and champagnes.

Departing from regional stations throughout the UK, the wide variety of luxury train journeys include visits to magnificent castles, vibrant cities and major events.

Belmond Northern Belle entered service in 2000, and has set the standard for stylish day trips and short breaks ever since.

It reflects the style of England's 'Belle' trains and the Pullman carriages of the Belmond British Pullman.

The individually designed carriages have been lovingly restored by some of the country's top craftspeople, including marquetry experts, muralists and mosaic artists.

Allow yourself to be whisked back to a more gracious age on our Spirit of Travel journey.

Enjoy a five-course lunch accompanied by champagne.

As the train takes you on a tour of Britain's stunning countryside, strolling musicians provide a lively soundtrack to your dining experience and a magician entertains you at your table.
