Brief Encounter Afternoon Tea

Enjoy a traditional afternoon tea with a difference-aboard the sumptuous carriages of the Northern Belle. Today's journey takes you on a circular tour through Britain's landscapes while you relax in the splendid carriages that recreate the glamour and grace of yesteryear.

This unique experience begins as your steward welcomes you on board and brings you a glass of sparkling wine in your comfortable seat. The elegant table, laid with starched tablecloths, uniquely branded silverware and highly polished glasses, complements the luxurious carriage beautifully.

Soon the treats are served: a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, homemade cakes and pastries, freshly baked scones with lashings of clotted cream and preserves, as well as tea or coffee. Indulge as you enjoy the convivial atmosphere and admire the views from your window.

Our journey includes a stop at Carnforth station; restored to its 1940's glory and the setting for the iconic film Brief Encounter. Visit the heritage centre, have a dance on the platform accompanied by our house band, share a kiss under the famous station clock or stay onboard and enjoy all the fun from the comfort of your armchair.

After our very own Brief Encounter at one of Lancashire's most picturesque stations our journey and gastronomic feast continues. This truly is an experience to remember forever.
