The Spirit of Travel Lunch

Embrace the glamour of 1930s train travel while enjoying a fine dining experience aboard the beautiful Northern Belle.

Settle into your plush seat and admire the intricate details of your luxurious carriage. Features include stunning mosaics, murals and marquetry crafted by the country’s top experts. Each of the train’s seven carriages is individually decorated and named after a British castle or stately home.

Your table is immaculately set with white linen, bespoke china and cut glass ready for your gastronomic journey. Sit back and let the liveried stewards look after you as you marvel at the ever-changing views of the glorious British countryside.

Soon you’ll find yourself smiling in anticipation of the first course of the Chef’s exquisite seasonal menu.

An experience to remember forever, this is the perfect treat for yourself or celebration gift for someone special.
