Wonderful day and exquisite service and hospitality from staff and services provided . It was faultless apart from a slight niggle due to sitting by the entrance exits it was very drafty at times and it felt cold blowing air on you which was a touch unpleasant but it was intermittent . I definitely would recommend northern belle it truly was a memorable experience. Thank you all.

From Telford to Carlisle via the Ribblehead viaduct and back, we had a fabulous time. We could not fault the food or the service, which was five stars. The scenery was to die for, helped by all day sun, and we enjoyed time in Carlisle to look around the Cathedral. The magician was entertainingly ham, and the musicians did a great double happy birthday, but what made the trip for us was the happenstance of being seated next to a lively and lovely German couple, who were shooting a YouTube video. Lots of laughs, and you can catch it on their two Germans in Britain Channel.

We had the most amazing day on-board the Northern Belle celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. The staff were fantastic, the food was outstanding and the carriage was comfortable and beautifully kept. We would very much like to ride on the train again in the near future. Thank you for making our celebration so special.

I have just travelled on the northern belle boarding at Manchester Victoria and travelling around Lancashire and Yorkshire. This was a 60th birthday treat for myself. My mum and I had the most fantastic time. The train is gorgeous ,very plush, food amazing and the staff were superb and very attentive. The only criticism I would make is that the pre travel information you receive via email does not contain enough detail. We thought the train route finished at Brighouse however when you get on board you are given a map of the journey which stretches over the 6 hours. I was also getting concerned as the tickets only arrived two days before the trip. It is a wonderful experience though and I will have many happy memories of the day.
