Padstow at Leisure

Your journey begins as your steward welcomes you on board the Northern Belle and escorts you to your seat. Elegant tables laid with starched tablecloths, uniquely designed silverware and highly polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages.

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

On arrival at Par Station, you will be transferred by coach to Padstow where your time is your own to explore the sights and attractions at your own leisurely pace. Nestling in the River Camel estuary this Cornish seaside town has lots to offer. Enjoy a walk along the beach, a stroll on the historic harbour or soak up the convivial atmosphere in the town's traditional inns and quaint cafe’s.

Following your afternoon, rejoin the train for your return journey. A sumptuous dinner with champagne and half a bottle of wine per person is served as you mull over the many highlights of the day.
