Carlisle at Leisure

Manchester, Bolton

The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

This visit takes us to the historic city of Carlisle.

Take a seat in your beautiful carriage, which evokes the opulence of 1930s rail travel. Admire the intricate details around you, including handcrafted wooden marquetry, ceiling murals and mosaic floors.

A fine dining experience awaits on the outward journey. Your table is set with pristine white linen, bespoke china and sparkling glassware. Sit back and relax as your liveried steward serves a delicious Bellini brunch.

Arrive refreshed and replete for an afternoon of discovery. A Roman settlement and established to serve the forts on Hadrian's Wall, Carlisle has played a role in military history for centuries. Today you can explore the Cathedral or Castle before we wait for the spectacular journey homeward bound over the stunning Settle and Carlisle route.

Later return to the train to enjoy a champagne reception followed by a gastronomic five-course dinner, served with our sommelier’s selection of wine.
