Why buy from us?
This is no ordinary steam train ride through the finest countryside in the North West of England. This is a steam train ride that is steeped in the very opulence of the golden age of train travel, as you prepared to board to enjoy a Scenic Railway Special trip on board The Northern Belle. The first leg of your grand tour is diesel locomotive hauled, and will depart from your location, heading north through Lancaster and Carnforth, through the stunning backdrop of the Lake District and Cumbria, to arrive in Carlisle. And as you enjoy taking in some of the most visually stunning scenery this part of the UK has to offer, you'll get to relax into your armchair seat, as you enjoy brunch and a Bellini cocktail. At Carlisle, you'll get to disembark whilst the Princess Elizabeth steam locomotive gets ready for her journey and couples up to the train. Then you'll be heading south along the Settle and Carlisle line, taking in the Yorkshire Dales, beginning the ascent up the steep gradient to Dent, the highest railway station in the UK. Passing through a long tunnel, you'll make your way across the Ribblehead viaduct, a remarkable feat of Victorian engineering and technology, spanning 400m and sitting 32m high above God's own country and the green fields of Yorkshire. Whilst taking in all these breathtaking landscapes, you'll also be able to relax into the comfort of your surroundings on board the Northern Belle, as a splendid five course meal is served at your table. As the train gently rolls back into Carlisle at the end of your round trip, you can be in no doubt at all that the Settle and Carlisle line, at any time of the year in any weather, offers the nostalgic trip of a lifetime, evocative of a different time and era that's simply unmatched today.

  • - Once you have chosen a date, we will help to ensure that you get the confirmation in time for your event and if need be we will liaise with the supplier on your behalf if there is a problem.
  • - After each event we invite our customers to review the venue and the provider.
