The Northern Belle reflects the style of England’s 1930s ‘Belle’ trains and the British Pullman carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Lavishly furnished with specially commissioned fabrics, intricate marquetry and glistening brass, every exquisite detail sets the scene for your dalliance with the romance of travel. The result is a beguiling combination of classical glamour and contemporary style. 

Breathe deep, and embrace the intimate 'country house' atmosphere of each unique carriage. At this level, luxury is timeless. Take time to gently explore the beauty of Britain's scenery: Dramatic castles, rolling countryside, tiny villages and great cities. This is Britain at its finest, and there is no better way to enjoy it. Board the Northern Belle and experience history in the making.

The Northern Belle, along with its "sister" train the British Pullman, also operates a full array of day trips and weekend breaks throughout Britain, many of them with themes such as castles, gardens, historic houses, romance and Christmas.
The Northern Belle is a day train. Immaculate carriages, superb food and service and scenery to take your breath away are just some of the delights waiting for you on board the Northern Belle. The Northern Belle can carry up to 252 passengers. Each carriage seats 42 and contains tables of two and four, with plenty of room for guests to move around and enjoy the train’s sociable atmosphere.
Each of the six dining carriages are named after a great British castle or stately home. Savour mouth watering food and carefully selected wines. You can  relax and let attentive stewards care for your every need as the country's finest landscapes glide gently by. The fine meals served on board the Northern Belle are freshly prepared by master chefs, and are accompanied with chilled champagne and wine. The meals served vary according to the journey taken. Specially crafted menus are available for celebrations and small gifts and surprises can be arranged to make the day truly unforgettable.
