Afternoon Tea for One on the Northern Belle Luxury Train
Enjoy the timeless British experience of afternoon tea as the Northern Belle sets off for its journey through beautiful British scenery and landscapes. This nostalgic trip is like a journey back in time to the glamour of a former age. The Northern Belle luxury vintage train is inspired by the romance and nostalgia of the Belle trains that were popular in the 1930s. Each luxury carriage has a unique style. Once on board and seated by a welcoming steward, enjoy chilled Champagne. Then as the train travels through the countryside, listen to roaming musicians and be entertained by a table magician while tucking into a selection of finger sandwiches, fruit cakes and freshly-baked scones topped with clotted cream and preserves, served with tea or coffee.
