The interiors of the Northern Belle carriages have many examples of exquisite marquetry by a family firm (founded 1895) that also produced panels for the original Belle train services of the 1930s.

Each of the Northern Belle carriages has 42 seats. These are in 7 bays of 6 seats, 2 at a table on one side of the aisle and 4 per table on the other.

These are the Belmond Northern Belle carriages, not necessarily in the order in which they run in the train.

Alnwick (No. 3273)

Decoration: marquetry motif of Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, inlaid with oak, boxwood, yew, sycamore and walnut. Alnwick is pronounced as Annick.
