Historic Bath at Leisure

Friday 11th November 2022

Nottingham, Derby, Leicester

Join the Northern Belle luxury train on a day excursion to the West Country and Britain's best-preserved Georgian city.

Your Journey

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, cafés and attractions. 

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.


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.
