Feel like royalty on the rails as you become an honoured guest on these sumptuous Belmond Northern Belle trips! You're never just a passenger on these luxury day excursions by rail and this wonderful collection of round trips departing from various regional train stations treats you to a traditional afternoon tea onboard during your voyage. Beautifully restored and decorated to reflect the 'belle' era of the 1930s when train travel was the epitome of sophistication, the attention to detail onboard the Belmond Northern Belle is simply stunning. Look up and you can't miss the elaborate ceiling decorations that have been hand painted by skilled crafts folk. Gently run your hand along the wood panelling and you'll discover it is all intricate, handcrafted marquetry. Simply gorgeous. The VIP treatment starts as soon as you are greeted by a steward on the platform's red carpet. A stroll through the carriages is one of the highlights of the journey. Each of the seven carriages is named after a stately home or castle, with Duart, Alnwick, Belvoir, Chatsworth, Glamis, Harlech and Warwick completing the rake of resplendent carriages on this 'tres belle' train that travels to northern and western destinations around the country. As well as journeying through some of the finest countryside around, on these experiences the train is a destination in itself and meticulously presented. Right down to the bone china tea cups, shining silver cutlery and the brass table lamps, it is pure indulgence. This is also reflected in the quality of the afternoon tea that'll be served at your table during your Belmond Northern Belle four hour round trip, which consists of lavishly prepared cakes and dainty sandwiches using high quality, fresh produce prepared by the onboard cuisine team. In a novel twist, you can choose from a classic high tea with the little extra luxury of a flute of Champagne, or enjoy a themed Mad Hatter Tea Party. Perfect for children and adults alike, the carriage is decorated and you'll be presented with a platter of tasty but unusual fare including purple edible sandwiches and some other Mad Tea Party-style surprises. The entertainment onboard the Belmond Northern Belle doesn't end there though…. The band of strolling musicians dressed in roaring 20s outfits will regale you during these trips with their tunes. And yes, if it's a birthday of special occasion, they might even do a special song just for you. And in a twist of intrigue, close up magicians will be working their table magic to wow and amaze you as you travel. These Belmond Northern Belle trips are all about the spirit of rail travel and with an afternoon tea, we think it's a superb way to combine two fine traditions. So sit back in your wide and very comfy seat, let yourself be waited on by the onboard train team and lap up the luxury of the 'belle époque' of the railways.
