Venue Features
The Scene:

Belmond Northern Belle entered service in 2000, and has set the standard for stylish day trips and short breaks ever since. It reflects the style of England's 'Belle' trains and the Pullman carriages of its sister train, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. The individually designed carriages have been lovingly restored by some of the country's top craftspeople, including marquetry experts, muralists and mosaic artists.

Design:
Individually designed carriages, named for and inspired by British castles and stately homes, are furnished with specially commissioned designs, hand decorated interiors, exclusive fabrics and fine worked panels. Every guest is warmly welcomed aboard by attentive and dedicated stewards. Immaculately laid tables with starched linen and gleaming silverware speak of glamour, sophistication and luxury.
Standout Venue Features:
Few things are as quintessentially British as a day trip. Whether heading to the races, to the coast, to shop or to sightsee, enhance the experience by making the journey as magical as the destination. Whichever luxury day trip you choose, sit back, relax and admire the view while friendly stewards provide the service for which the Belmond Northern Belle is famed.
