Entrance on Petty Wales, London
Ghent, in Belgium, is a stunning, vibrant city with a thriving restaurant and bar scene amid it's network of narrow canals overseen by dozens of antique brick houses. Ghent’s medieval past is to be found in a string of superb Gothic buildings including St-Baafskathedraal, whose principal treasure is Jan van Eyck’s remarkable Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, one of the world’s most important paintings.
Supporting the cathedral are the likes of St-Niklaaskerk, with its soaring arches and pencil-thin turrets; the forbidding castle of the counts of Flanders, Het Gravensteen; and the delightful medieval guildhouses of the Graslei.
During our visit the Winter Festival will be in full swing. The city centre will become a winter wonderland with an ice-skating rink under the City Pavilion. From the giant Ferris wheel you'll enjoy a view of the city from the air. There is also a Christmas market with international stands and the Castle of the Counts changes into a winter wonderland castle.
Getting to Ghent with us couldn't be easier! We will pick you up in our comfortable, heated coach from central London or Bexley and travel via the Channel Tunnel straight to the heart of this wonderful winter wonderland. Join us for a winter day trip to remember!
