Northern Belle luxury steam train fine dining experience

All aboard with Heart of Kent Hospice Heart of Kent Hospice is bringing the style and glamour of 1930s steam travel to Kent with an exclusive trip on the magnificent Northern Belle. The Hospice is chartering Britain’s finest luxury vintage steam train for a unique, lunch-time excursion through the spectacular Kent countryside. Guests will be welcomed aboard by liveried stewards and shown to individually designed carriages, each inspired by the grandeur and elegance of a British castle or stately home. A Black class 5 steam special locomotive will transport passengers back to a golden age of travel as they enjoy champagne and canapés, followed by an exquisite, four course meal prepared from locally sourced organic Kent produce, seasonal ingredients accompanied by a carefully selected bottle of fine wine.
