The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Join the Northern Belle luxury train on a day excursion and step back in time and experience the historic streets of Bath at Christmas.

A fine dining experience awaits in your beautiful carriage, evoking the glamour of the 1930s “Belle” trains. Each of the train’s seven carriages are named after a British castle or stately home and are individually decorated.

Sit back and relax at your elegant table, which is set with bespoke china, sparkling glassware and immaculate linen. Liveried stewards will serve you a delicious Bellini brunch and take care of all your needs.

Upon arrival in Bath you will have the afternoon to explore at leisure. The station is located in the heart of the city and an easy stroll from many of the fine shops, cafes and attractions.

BATH CHRISTMAS MARKETS

Meander through the streets of Bath adorned with over 150 twinkling chalets and discover some of the best crafters that the South West and beyond has to offer. With stylish homeware, handmade jewellery, personalised presents and more, bathe in the sights and smells of Christmas whilst ticking everything off your shopping list.

Festive Food

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive treat. At Bath Christmas Market, pick up your favourite winter warmers to enjoy as you explore everything the market has to offer. Grab your Christmas market favourites or a comforting hot drink to keep you toasty whilst you wander around the Market.

For somewhere cosier, The Lodge is the perfect place to relax and warm up. The Lodge can be found right at the heart of Bath Christmas Market on Stall Street.

Merry Music

An abundance of musical entertainment fills the streets with festive cheer, including community choirs and brass bands. Enjoy local school children performing their favourite Christmas songs, Visit Bath Abbey for Shoppers’ Carols, or head to New Bond Street to see who’s performing on the entertainment stage.

 

Later return to the train and enjoy a champagne reception on board. Soon you can look forward to a gastronomic five-course dinner, served with our sommelier’s choice of wine.

Savour your dinner, converse with your travel companions and marvel at the ever-changing views on the homeward stretch. Make time to stroll through the other carriages, admiring the decorative flourishes that make this luxury train unique.

BATH

Sophisticated and genteel, Bath is loved for its honey-coloured Georgian buildings, its cosmopolitan restaurants and chic boutiques. Most notable are the well-preserved Roman baths from which the city gets its name. The place where Romans once bathed, chatted and conducted their business can be explored today in an illuminating museum. Further highlights include the 15th-century abbey, the historic Royal Crescent, and the Jane Austen Centre devoted to one of the city’s most illustrious former residents.
