The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Gather friends and family together to enjoy a wonderfully indulgent lunch aboard the Northern Belle Luxury train to Cornwall.

Evoking the opulent 1930s “Belle” trains, each vintage carriage is decked out in luxurious details.

Look around and discover plush fabrics, wooden marquetry and handcrafted ceiling murals.

Settle into your table, set with crisp white linen, bespoke china and sparkling cut glassware. The chef’s seven-course lunch menu, served by liveried stewards, is nothing short of sensational.

Your view from the table will be ever changing with the Somerset, Devon and Cornish countryside gliding past your picture window.

A convivial atmosphere is guaranteed as musicians and a table magician pass through the carriages.

The highlight of the journey is the section of railway line at Dawlish which is built on the sea wall and passes through five tunnels through the cliffs as it follows the coast.

Simply the best sea view for luncheon ever and a day to remember—the perfect treat for yourself, or a celebration gift for loved ones.
