Berwick Upon Tweed at Leisure

Manchester, Sheffield, Doncaster

The Experience

Your day begins in the ultimate of style and luxury as your liveried steward escorts you to your plush armchair seat.

A sparkling Bellini cocktail is served, followed by a three-course brunch. As you relax and enjoy the journey, take time to admire the exquisite details of your carriage, whose opulent furnishings and craftsmanship evoke the glamour of 1930s “Belle” trains.

Soak up the stunning views through your picture window as the train makes its way north to Northumberland. Enjoy the coastal vistas and ever changing scenery on this spectacular rail journey along the East Coast Mainline.

On arrival, the day is yours to explore this peaceful town with its great Elizabethan walls originally built to keep the invading Scots out. Walk the complete circuit, taking in spectacular views across the River Tweed estuary and Berwick’s three bridges, including the iconic Royal Border Bridge, built by Robert Stevenson. 

The town also has an abundance of museums and galleries including the Barracks Complex which charts the life of the British infantryman through the ages. Alternatively, just kick off your shoes and have a stroll along one of the many sandy beaches and breathe in the fresh sea air.

After your afternoon’s sightseeing, return to the train for a champagne reception and settle back into your seat. The highlight of your journey home is a gastronomic five-course dinner, accompanied by our sommelier’s selection of wine. Savour each seasonal speciality as you reflect on the day’s discoveries with your companions.
