Brief Encounter Lunch

Scunthorpe, Leeds

The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Embrace the glamour of the Golden age of travel while enjoying a fine dining experience aboard the beautiful Northern Belle vintage train.

Settle into your plush seat and admire the intricate details of your luxurious carriage. Features include stunning mosaic floors, ceiling murals and wooden marquetry crafted by the country's top craftspeople. Each of the train's seven carriages is individually decorated and named after a British castle or stately home.

Your table is immaculately set with white linen, bespoke china and cut glass ready for your gastronomic journey. Sit back and let the liveried stewards look after you as you marvel at the ever-changing views of the glorious British countryside.

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.

A BRIEF ENCOUNTER 

A Noel Coward film from 1945 Brief Encounter became a sensation of its time with an illicit love affair that blossomed from a meeting at a Railway station. The famous clock which Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard kiss beneath is still in situ. Why not recreate your own love story and ask a steward to take a photograph of you and your loved one as you re-enact that scene from the movie.
