Flying Scotsman - Spirit of Travel Lunch

London

The Experience

Experience the epitome of rail travel with this fantastic journey of a lifetime. A unique opportunity to travel behind the world's most famous and favourite locomotive in the ultimate style and glamour of the Northern Belle carriages.

Embrace the Golden Age of Steam with all the modern day luxuries - fine wine, innovative cuisine and elegant entertainment, all under the care of your liveried steward.

Witness the power and might of the Flying Scotsman as she steams into the station with the gleaming carriages of the Northern Belle. Step aboard and start your journey in style with a glass of Grand Marque champagne as we head out of the capital.

Once settled into your luxurious surroundings the first of seven delectable courses will be served. All delivered in style by your professional yet friendly liveried stewards. Sit back and enjoy the ever changing views from your window as plumes of smoke float past.

During your journey be sure to take a stroll through the train and marvel at the hand crafted marquetry, ceiling art and rich fabrics. Each carriage is utterly unique and inspired by our country’s finest stately homes and castles.

To add extra magic and provide the soundtrack to your day our resident magician and house band will pass through your carriage.

The Flying Scotsman

A remarkable feat of engineering and a National Treasure. Originally build in Doncaster in 1923 and numbered 1472 this fabulous engine has captured the imagination of generations. In 1924 it was renumbered 4472 and renamed "Flying Scotsman" after the London to Edinburgh rail service. A double record breaker - this engine was the first to travel non-stop from London to Edinburgh in 1928 and in 1934 the first to reach 100mph. After a colourful history and many changes in ownership the engine was lovingly and painstakingly restored by Riley & Son (E) Limited and is now a working exhibit at the National Rail Museum, York.
