For a very special treat, take a day trip outside of London on the glamorous and nostalgic Belmond Northern Belle, sister train to the Belmond British Pullman Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, departing from various cities across the UK. Once on board the art deco carriages that date back to the 1920's and 30's, liveried stewards serve a three-course Bellini brunch. The train glides through the British countryside to one of the many destinations available, including National Parks, impressive castles, great cities and excellent museums. On arrival, there is often a guided tour and always ample time to explore. Back on board, dine on a four-course dinner with champagne and wine on the sumptuous journey travelling back full circle.
