Enter the magical wonderland of the prestigious Northern Belle luxury train for a sumptuous afternoon tea with a bit of a difference. With carriages dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, the train is decorated in the art deco style typical of this glamorous era. Once on board, a liveried steward guides you to a comfortable seat and the train glides into the British countryside. During this relaxing round trip, dine on a generous spread of afternoon tea, with a twist of Mad Hatter. Tuck into purple sandwiches, surprising cakes and splendiferous scones accompanied by tea, coffee and half a bottle of champagne each. To add to the relaxing and fun atmosphere, strolling musicians provide the soundtrack and a table magician entertains.
