Fountains Abbey was founded in 1132 and is one of the largest and best-preserved Cistercian monasteries in the UK. Surrounded by breathtaking countryside, ornamental lakes, waterfalls and temples; Fountains Abbey is a wonderful attraction with a rich history.
This journey begins with a red carpet welcome onto The Northern Belle. Stewards will usher you to your plush armchair and present you with a sparkling Bellini cocktail. Then you can sit back and admire the stunning 1930s décor of your carriage as you wait for your delicious 3-course brunch to be served.
When you arrive in the spa town of Harrogate, you will be met by guides who will escort you to your coach transfer. You are then free to explore the Abbey as you please. If you venture down the riverside paths, you may even come across some deer.
After a one-of-a-kind afternoon, it's time to return to the train, where you will be met with a glass of champagne followed by a sumptuous 5-course dinner and a sommelier-selected bottle of wine.
