The Northern Belle Luxury Train is one of the best ways to travel on this planet, with carriages dating from the 1920s and 30s combined with decor and service inspired by the romance and decadence of the era. Once on board, a liveried steward shows you to your seat before serving up a glass of chilled champagne. As the train glides through the beautifully scenic British countryside, the stewards bring a delectable afternoon tea consisting of finger sandwiches, cakes, scones, tea and coffee to the table. For entertainment on this indulgent journey, a table magician performs, while roaming musicians provide the soundtrack. Absolute bliss.
