Thinking about Christmas 2020 already? Wondering what to buy your loved one? Well, you can enjoy a Christmas shopping expedition in luxury as the Northern Belle vintage train journeys to Winchester Christmas Markets.
This luxury train journey to Winchester Christmas Markets begins in style as you are welcomed aboard the Northern Belle with a sparkling drinks reception. As with all Northern Belle day trips, fine dining is at the heart of the journey and not long after the train pulls away will you be served by the Northern Belle stewards a delicious three-course brunch, which should give you plenty of energy for your excursion to the Winchester Christmas Markets.
The Northern Belle will arrive in Winchester at about lunch time. You will have the afternoon to explore Winchester's Christmas markets at your leisure. Whilst in Winchester, you may as well take the opportunity to also head into the magical winter wonderland, which is situated in the centre. After five hours of exploring what Winchester has to offer it is time to head back to the Northern Belle luxury train.
A day out and about in hilly Winchester, will have you well exercised, therefore you shall surely enjoy a refreshing Champagne reception as you board the train. The fresh Hampshire air has probably also helped you build up an appetite, and it won't be long before your sumptuous four-course dinner is served. With British seasonal ingredients and a Great British cheese board and a specially selected bottle of wine to boot, you should feel very satisfied with the concluding meal of the day.
