The Rose Of The Shire – Christmas Special


SUNDAY 3 DECEMBER 2017

The Rose of the shire YOUR BELMOND NORTHERN BELLE JOURNEY

 

Our first ‘Rose of the Shire’ excursion earlier in the year received such favourable feedback so we are delighted to present another grand circular tour aboard Belmond Northern Belle, this time with a Christmas theme.

 

A perfectly chilled glass of Champagne gets your journey off to a fine start as we head out of London, passing Peterborough before veering westwards through the ancient county of Rutland and the ‘foody capital’ of Melton Mowbray. We then turn north through the university town of Loughborough and glimpse Nottingham Castle, redolent of legends of folk hero Robin Hood.

Now we take a gentle meander on a secondary route, passing Newark before heading into the distinctive wide-open landscape of Lincolnshire. Lincoln Cathedral dominates the skyline as we turn south. We keep a sedate pace as we skirt Sleaford then pass Spalding, which was until quite recently famous for its flower parade. Having passed through all manner of contrasting scenery in five English shire counties we rejoin our outward route for the final journey home.
