Muncaster Castle & Gardens, Lake District

Liverpool, Manchester

The Experience

Today’s adventure takes you to Muncaster Castle and Gardens set in the pretty coastal village of Ravenglass in the Lake District National Park.

Your journey begins as your steward welcomes you aboard the Northern Belle to your comfortable armchair seat. Elegant tables laid with starched tablecloths, uniquely branded silverware and highly polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages.

Fine dining is a highlight of every journey and, once you have settled in, a delicious brunch with a Bellini is served as you travel to Cumbria. In the care of your steward, sit back and relax in the convivial atmosphere, enjoying the views from your window. On the Northern Belle, the journey is as exciting as the destination.

On arrival at Ravenglass Station, our guides are waiting to take you on a short coach journey to Muncaster Castle. The castle’s idyllic setting, with views of the Western Lake District and Scafell Pike as well as its 70 acres of gardens and woodlands, is reason enough to visit.

Add to this the castle with its’ many rooms including the Great Hall, the Dining Room and the wood-panelled Victorian Billiard Room and we have a spectacular day of discovery.

A highlight of the visit is the Hawk and Owl Centre and the magnificent falconry display; witness the silent flight of an owl, the speed of a falcon and the majestic eagle soar over the valley which has been granted UNESO World Heritage Status.

After a wonderful day rejoin the coach for the short journey back to the station, where we welcome you back on board the Northern Belle with a refreshing glass of champagne.

Later, you are served a sumptuous five-course dinner accompanied by half a bottle of wine as we wend our way home.
