The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Join the Northern Belle luxury train on a day excursion to one of the best preserved castles in Britain.

Nestled into the valley is one of the best preserved castles in Britain just waiting to be explored. Giant curtain walls and eight huge round towers give the castle its unique and intimidating presence. After our trip to the past we bring things right up to date with a visit to the vibrant and beautiful Bodnant Gardens. Spanning 80 acres and looking out towards Snowdonia, this garden is designed to flourish throughout the year with a variety of plants and flowers that represent each glorious season.

The journey however is just as important as the destination. In the morning our stewards welcome you aboard the Northern Belle and escort you to your comfortable seat. Elegant tables laid with starched tablecloths, uniquely-branded silverware and highly-polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages.

Fine dining is a highlight of every journey and, once you have settled in, a delicious brunch with a Bellini is served as you travel towards Wales. On the return, a sumptuous five course meal awaits accompanied by fine wine and a glass of sparkling champagne. What a wonderful way to explore the very best of Britain.
