A wonderful journey featured on Channel 5's "World's most scenic railway journeys".
Your journey begins in style with a welcome Bellini. Once settled into your plush armchair in our stylish dining carriages, a light brunch is served on route to Carnforth.
This is where we join the steam locomotive for our mini day trip to Carlisle.
You will have time for a short leg stretch into Carlisle while the train resets for dinner and you can look forward to a delectable five course dinner served on the return.
We will have plenty of time to take photographs of the steam engine in Carlisle station, have your picture taken in front of the loco and chat to the firemen and driver. The highlight of the journey will be travelling over the famous Settle and Carlisle railway line during dinner.
The route which crosses the remote scenic regions of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennine Moors runs between Settle Junction on the Leeds to Morecambe line and Carlisle near the English-Scottish borders.
Painstakingly hewn out of the North Pennine Moors and Yorkshire Dales during the 1870s by an army of 6,000 navvies, this has been voted number two in a list of “The World’s 10 Greatest Train Journeys”.
