There are no age restrictions when it comes to enjoying a day trip on the Northern Belle.

Six of our journeys have been specially tailored for families and visit destinations all ages will enjoy.

Embark on a dramatic adventure. Let little ones discover their wild side among the animals of Chester Zoo.

Alternatively, enter a magical world without ever leaving the train. Our Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea Party features specially decorated carriages, tempting treats and enchanting surprises to ensure an unforgettable journey.
