BELMOND NORTHERN BELLE
The Belmond Northern Belle reflects the style of England’s 1930s ‘Belle’ trains and the Pullman carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Travel through some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery while enjoying cuisine and fine wines using produce from the landscapes you pass through.
Departing from regional stations throughout the UK, the train is a destination in itself as it visits cities, castles and major events.
The Belmond Northern Belle train entered service in 2000. It's mission was to provide the ultimate in stylish day excursions and short breaks, departing from cities and towns throughout the north of Britain.
Combining classic craftsmanship and contemporary engineering, it is a reflection of the magnificent 'Belle' trains of the 1930s.
The six dining carriages are named after great British castles or stately homes. They display marquetry, fabrics and brass fittings specifically commissioned from British craftsmen.
