Edinburgh at Leisure

Arrive in style at Scotland’s capital city—a treasure trove of art, culture and history.

Your day begins as you step aboard the Northern Belle luxury train. Sit back in your plush armchair and celebrate Britain’s glorious railway heritage.

Within moments you’ll be sipping a sparkling Bellini as you savour a delicious brunch. The journey to Edinburgh whisks you through the beautiful countryside of Northern England and the Scottish border lands.

Take the opportunity to chat to your fellow travellers and plan your afternoon in Edinburgh. The city, famed for its stunning Georgian architecture, boasts a wide array of attractions. Visit the imposing castle, one of the many museums, or simply browse through the countless shops, cafes and restaurants.

Return to the Northern Belle after a memorable afternoon at leisure to a glass of chilled champagne. Look forward to a sumptuous four-course dinner, replete with fine wine, as you journey home.

Relax in your vintage carriage as the liveried stewards take care of your every need. Take a stroll through the train and admire the unique vintage details that make each carriage truly unique.
