All aboard with 'Chester Zoo' day trip onboard Belmond's Northern Belle

Belmond NORTHERN BELLEBelmond's Northern Belle, an England-based, 1930s-inspired train, is calling all families with a Chester Zoo day trip, where young passengers can enjoy a behind-the-scenes peek at the world's largest jaguar enclosure and the biggest collection of orangutans in Europe.

Kids under 16 travel free on both excursions through October.
