THE NORTHERN BELLE
The Northern Belle is regarded as Great Britain’s finest luxury vintage train. Evoking the opulence and glamour of the Golden Age of Travel, the Northern Belle is a celebration of British Heritage and the lavish ‘Belle’ trains of 1930s.
Individually designed carriages, named and inspired by British castles and stately homes, feature hand-painted exteriors and rich veneered marquetry interiors, adorned with handmade fabrics, murals and mosaics.
The perfect setting for your day excursion through the breath-taking Scottish countryside!
Set in over 2,000 glorious acres, Dumfries House in Ayrshire is a beautiful estate best known for its fantastic collection of Chippendale Furniture.
Saved for the nation by HRH Prince Charles Foundation ensuring that the country’s best collection of Chippendale furniture remained together for future generations to admire, Dumfries House has undergone extensive restoration work in recent years.
