The Belmond Northern Belle

The Train

Belmond Northern Belle

The Belmond Northern Belle reflects the style of England’s 1930′s ‘Belle’ trains and the Pullman carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Take a day trip aboard the Belmond Northern Belle and travel through some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery. Experience lovingly prepared cuisine using produce from the landscapes you pass through expertly matched with fine wines from an extensive cellar.
Day trips depart from regional stations throughout the UK. The train and its carriages are themselves a destination as you visit the UK’s cities, castles and major events.
Combining classic British craftsmanship and contemporary engineering, it is a reflection of the magnificent ‘Belle’ trains of the 1930′s.
The seven dining carriages are named after great British stately homes or castles. They display fabrics, marquetry and brass fittings specifically commissioned from British craftsmen.


Belmond Northern Belle entered service in 2000, and has set the standard for stylish day trips and short breaks ever since.
It reflects the style of England’s ‘Belle’ trains and the Pullman carriages of its sister train, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
The individually designed carriages have been lovingly restored by some of the country’s top craftspeople, including marquetry experts, muralists and mosaic artists.

View Carriage Plan


The spectacular wood panelling in the Duart carriage was created by the Dunn family, experts in the rare craft of marquetry. Today, Cheryl Dunn uses the same tools and methods as her father and grandfather, who worked on many of the carriages when they were originally built, to create the rich walnut panel, decorated with pink heather and white fowers representing the
wild isolation of Scotland’s Duart Castle.
