Fay says, "The Northern Belle roams the English, Scottish and Welsh countryside, with all the fine dining and superb service one would expect from a train which shared the same 'stable' as the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express."

About the Northern Belle

A journey on the Belmond Northern Belle is more than just a day trip when you travel back to the 1930s, meandering through the British countryside. On the Northern Belle, dining is something to savour, providing the ultimate in stylish and enjoyable day excursions and short breaks from major stations throughout the UK, creating a special memory for a special occasion.

Muncaster Castle and Gardens, an allegedly haunted castle set in the pretty coastal village of Ravenglass in the Lake District National Park. A delicious brunch with a Bellini is served as you travel towards Ravenglass through pretty countryside. On arrival at Ravenglass Station, guides are waiting to take you on a short coach journey to Muncaster Castle. The castle’s idyllic setting, with views of the Western Lake District and Scafell Pike, Britain’s highest mountain, as well as its 70 acres of gardens and woodlands, is reason enough to visit. Add to this the castle with its’ many rooms including the Great Hall, the Dining Room and the wood-panelled Victorian Billiard Room and we have a spectacular day of discovery.

A highlight of the visit is the Hawk and Owl Centre and the magnificent falconry display; witness the silent flight of an owl, the speed of a falcon and the majestic eagle soar over the valley which has been granted UNESO World Heritage Status.

After a wonderful day rejoin the coach for the short journey back to the station, to join the train for a refreshing glass of champagne followed by a sumptuous five-course dinner accompanied by half a bottle of wine as we wend our way home.
