The Experience

Discover the magic of Chester at Christmas; Cobbled streets, snickelways, city walls, black and white timbered buildings are all part of the unique history of this Roman City.. 

Your day begins as your steward welcomes you aboard the Northern Belle and shows you to your seat. Elegant tables laid with starched linen, uniquely designed silverware and polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages- sit back in your plush armchair and celebrate Britain's glorious railway heritage.

Fine dining is a highlight of every journey and, once you have settled into your seat, a delicious brunch with a Bellini is served. In the care of your steward, sit back and relax in the convivial atmosphere, enjoying the views from your window as you travel towards the walled city of Chester.

On arrival the time is your own to explore the sights and attractions at a leisurely pace.  The magnificent cathedral is in the heart of the city and is approximately a fifteen minute walk from the station, admission is included for you should you wish.  Cobbled streets, snickelways, city walls, black and white timbered buildings are all part of the unique history of this Roman City.  Explore further at your leisure.
