Britain's poshest train will return to Ipswich this weekend as passengers are set to enjoy a festive meal and trip through the countryside.

The decadent Northern Belle features 1930s Pullman-style carriages named after stately homes and castles. 

Passengers lucky enough to get tickets will be departing from Ipswich Railway Station at 1.25pm on Saturday.

The dining train will have festive décor to complement the seven-course Christmas meal that will be served to those onboard.

Passengers will also enjoy a glass of champagne, a British cheese board, biscuits and chutney, a bottle of wine per couple and tea and coffee as well as petit fours. 

While the £395pp tickets are sold out, you may be able to see it pass through the county.

It departs Norwich station at 12.10pm and arrives back at 5.10pm, stopping to pick up more passengers at Ipswich station at 1.25pm and returning at 6.15pm. 

The Northern Belle will return to Suffolk in June 2024, with trips to Hardwick Hall and Chatsworth House.
