The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Kick start the festive season in style with an indulgent day excursion aboard the Northern Belle luxury train to the city of Winchester and its picturesque Christmas market.

Your day begins as your steward welcomes you on board 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 to Hampshire.

Winchester is often referred to as “England’s Christmas Market Capital” and we are confident that you will enjoy your visit to this medieval city.
