Your Journey

Embark on a mesmerising journey from the moment you step foot at the station, ushering you into a night of enchanting elegance reminiscent of the Great Gatsby era. As you arrive, the air will be alive with the melodies of 1920s tunes, serenading you into the glamorous ambience. Be prepared to catch the eye of the paparazzi, poised to capture your allure as a keepsake for every passenger.

Once settled into your sumptuous seat, indulge in the sophistication of a glass of exquisite Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée Brut NV Champagne, setting the stage for an opulent evening. Renowned Head Chef Matthew Green's inventive culinary creations will take centre stage, offering a contemporary twist on the classic Table d'hôte menu with a meticulously curated seven-course extravaganza, exclusively crafted for this extraordinary night.

As the train glides into the night, immerse yourself in the captivating history of the Great Gatsby era. The lavish 1930s-style Pullman carriages recreate the essence of a time when luxury knew no bounds. Every detail, from the ornate decor to the soft glow of elegant chandeliers, transports you to a bygone era of extravagance and allure.

Entertainment will pulse through the evening, featuring performances by the sensational London-based ‘The Gatsby Band’, a three-piece ensemble playing modern hits in the glittering style of 1920s swing. Joining them are our own ‘Casablanca Steps’ and the ‘Northern Belle Magician’, ensuring that smiles and memories are shared throughout the carriages.

Capture the enchantment with our onboard photographer, offering Polaroid keepsakes for passengers to cherish the night forever. Sip expertly crafted cocktails by our onboard mixologist, adding effervescence to the festivities. Your ticket grants you either half a bottle of wine or two complimentary cocktails per person, ensuring the celebration never wanes.

Step into the Gatsby Gala Dinner, a historic blend of luxury and entertainment, promising an unforgettable evening aboard the Northern Belle. The extravagance of the past merges with the excitement of the present, creating a night of unparalleled glitz and glamour.

Remember, a 1920s-style dress code is a must upon boarding.


The Roaring Twenties, also known as the Jazz Age, marked a transformative period in American history. Emerging from the aftermath of World War I and leading into the Great Depression, this era embraced cultural and social change fervently. Unprecedented economic prosperity, coupled with innovation and rebellion, defined the time. Flapper fashion, jazz music, and a sense of modernity reshaped societal norms. F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic novel "The Great Gatsby" captured the essence of the era, exploring themes of wealth, aspiration, and the elusive pursuit of the American Dream. The Great Gatsby era remains a captivating chapter in history, reflecting both the exuberance and complexities of a society undergoing rapid transformation.
