Feel like a guest in an elegant home rather than a traveller aboard a Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train – the Belmond Northern Belle is as stylish and attractive as its name. Each antique carriage is perfectly preserved, exceptionally tidy and decorated as it was in the glory days, and staff onboard really do enjoy their jobs, which is noticeable in the high level of service. Enjoy an elegant afternoon tea together: choose between a traditional tea with cakes, scones and champagne, or the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – a surprise from start to finish, but equally as delectable. Truly notice the countryside together as you relax in your seats, and remember, your carriage will be served at intervals throughout your journey by expert musicians and an entertaining table magician.
What's included?
  • A luxurious four-hour round trip on the elegant Belmond Northern Belle
  • A delicious afternoon tea on board the train. You can choose one of the following afternoon teas:

  • Strolling musicians and a table magician to entertain you during your trip

Location: Manchester Age: Over 65 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Anniversary
I bought this gift for my mum and dad for their Golden Wedding Anniversary. I have to say it was worth every single penny My mum and dad were made to feel so welcome - the staff were so friendly and attentive. The carriages were beautiful and the attention to detail was fantastic, they even had little red carpets laid out for them on the platform! The five course meal was stunning and the entertainment was brilliant. They enjoyed every single minute of it and I cannot recommend this experience enough.
What would you improve for next time? Absolutely nothing! It's perfect

A terrific afternoon

5 out of 5 27 July 2015
Location: Kent Age: 55-64 Bought For Relative Occasion: Wedding
The train carriages were absolutely beautiful, the service first class and the afternoon tea was lovely. We were also lucky to have good company - the two ladies we shared a table with were great fun. The only small thing that was a bit disappointing was that about half the journey was through industrial areas and we were hoping for more scenery.However, this didn't spoil the experience at all. We were made to feel very special - lovely. Thank you.
What would you improve for next time? Just the point mentioned above - that's all.

A lovely afternoon out

Location: West Midlands Age: 35-44 Bought For Myself Occasion: Anniversary
My husband and I had a thoroughly enjoyable trip on the Northern Belle. The service from the staff was faultless, they were very attentive. There was a constant supply of champagne and tea/coffee. The food was delicious, and there was plenty of it. The carriages were beautiful and seats so cosy. We sat in comfort and were entertained by very good strolling musicians and a magician as we watched the English countryside go by. A perfect present or treat!

I purchased this trip for my parents for Christmas and due to my elderly parents being quite ill found it difficult to arrange so when the northern belle put an extra date on in September I was over the moon! My parents love the train and anything to do with steam/diesel, theyv been on the orient express and when they returned from this special day said it was just as good! They were looked after from start to finish, they said they felt like royalty! They spoke about the trip and how lovely it was and where they went to and how it was made special by the musicians playing at each table, they were overjoyed, mam is not a drinker but was so taken at having some champagne im sure we will be having it at christmas! as for the tea, it was wonderful, both mam and dad said it was one of the best trips theyd been on and mam said she would love to go on it again but with me! I picked them up from their local station and from getting into the car to being home it was lovely to hear that they had enjoyed it, i was pleased that id booked the trip for them through buyagift it was a huge success and it made me happy to know that they had a wonderful time, thank you northern belle

The experience in its self was amazing and I couldn't fault the Orient express team. They were very helpful too! Fantastic!!!! Would not recommend booking it through buy a gift though. Go directly with orient express!
What would you improve for next time? The dates an city departure lists on your website and the correct communication and help when the customer calls up to find out their options!
