Stratford-Upon-Avon at Leisure

Carnforth, Preston, Liverpool

The Experience

Visit the birthplace of the world-famous poet and playwright William Shakespeare.

Your day begins as your steward welcomes you onboard the Northern Belle and shows you to your seat. Elegant tables laid with starched linen, uniquely-designed silverware and polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages-sit back in your plush armchair and celebrate Britain's glorious railway heritage.

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 you travel towards the Midlands.

On arrival, enjoy an afternoon at leisure. You may choose to follow the literary trail and visit Shakespeare's home, Anne Hathaway's cottage and the Royal Shakespeare Company or perhaps hire a boat and take a relaxing row along the river. However you choose to spend your time, this Tudor town has plenty to offer its visitors.

Return to the Northern Belle after a memorable afternoon and enjoy a glass of chilled champagne. Look forward to a sumptuous five-course dinner complete with fine wine, as you journey home.
