Alnwick Castle & Gardens, Northumberland

Manchester, Huddersfield, Leeds

The Experience

Join the Northern Belle luxury train for an enchanting excursion to Alnwick Castle, the family estate of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland.

The journey begins with a fine dining experience as brunch is served at your elegant table. Pristine white linen, bespoke china and sparkling glassware set the scene for the gastronomic delights to come.

Admire the design details of your vintage carriage, which evokes the glamorous “Belle” trains of the 1930s. Sit back and relax as liveried stewards take care of all your needs. Marvel at the beautiful scenery through your picture window as the train makes its stately way to the North East.

On arrival in Alnwick you are escorted by coach to the castle for a guided tour, followed by time at leisure to explore.

Afterwards you are welcomed back on board with a effervescent champagne reception. Chat about the highlights of your day over a delectable five-course dinner, served with our sommelier’s choice of wine.

Perhaps take a stroll through the other carriages spotting the beautiful design touches. Handcrafted mosaics and murals make each carriage truly unique.
