The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Journey to the Jurassic Coast in ultimate style and glamour.

Today’s adventure takes you to Devon and the coastal town of Paignton.

Known as the English Riviera it has dramatic beach and coastal views over the English Channel.

Your journey begins as your steward welcomes you aboard the Northern Belle to your comfortable armchair 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 Devon. In the care of your steward, sit back and relax in the convivial atmosphere, enjoying the views from your window. On the Northern Belle, the journey is as exciting as the destination.

On arrival at Paignton, it’s a short walk to the to the Dartmouth Steam Railway platform for your next rail adventure.

Travel on a one of their vintage steam trains down to Kingswere with views of the Dartmouth River estuary.

You will have time to spend in Paignton on return and enjoy the pier and seaside views of this picturesque village.

After a wonderful day, we welcome you back on board the Northern Belle with a refreshing glass of champagne.

Later, you are served a sumptuous five-course dinner accompanied by half a bottle of wine per person as we travel home.
