March 1-3 Chocolate tasting, Belgian beer & medieval streets in Bruges

Join us for this beautiful weekend in Bruges - also called the Venice of the North. There is so much to do and see, that I am sure we will have a fantastic time!


Suspended in time centuries ago, Bruges is now one of Western Europe’s most-visited medieval cities. Picturesque market squares, dreamy canals and old whitewashed almshouses all evoke a world long since gone. So let's step back in time and discover the most delightful little city of canals and bridges, medieval Flemish architecture and higgledy-piggledy cobbled streets.

For those of you who have seen the film 'In Bruges', you might be reminded of the famous scene locations such as the famous Belfry Tower, Grote Markt and the Cafedraal. We will have an opportunity to see many stunning examples of medieval architecture and narrow canals. We will also try out some of the best chocolate in the world and for those who like beer & mussles, Belgium is the place for you!

The plan:

We have reserved a lovely hostel in the centre of Bruges, just minutes away from all the beautiful buildings and cobbled narrow streets.

We will travel on a comfortable minibus, leaving on Friday morning, to be back on Sunday evening. This will give us two nights in Bruges, where we can explore the city, taste their delicious and world-famous Belgian beers and chocolate waffles.

Please note, the minibus will depart from London on Friday at 9 am (tbc), so it will be necessary to take this day off work.

A more detailed itinerary is to be confirmed.


The price of £159 includes:
2 nights hostel accommodation with breakfast in a central location.
Return travel from London!

Price does NOT include:
Lunch, dinner or drinks.
Entrance fees to sites and attractions.
Bus or taxi fares in Bruges.

There are limited spaces available on this trip so to confirm your place please make the payment of £159 (you will receive an email from Misha with the payment details after you have RSVPed yes)

Please note - due to undefined numbers and hostel availability, your space will be confirmed once we have the final numbers and book the hostel rooms. This is due to the hostel wanting the money to be paid in advance with no refund. Only RSVP Yes if you're definitely interested in going and are ready to pay the money for the trip. In the case that not enough people RSVP, we might have to call the trip off, in which case your money will be fully refunded.

Please RSVP by 1st of February.

Hope you can join us on this beautiful city break!


*If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sofia through Meetup.*

You will need to have travel insurance and provide details before travel. It is strongly recommended to have this in place well in advance.

Visa: Please check with the French and Belgium Embassies if you need a visa to travel there. France and Belgium are within the Schengen zone. It is your responsibility to obtain all necessary travel documents, including visa.
