Entrance on Petty Wales, London
The magical city of Bruges looks like a fairytale come to life, full of pretty medieval buildings and serene canals, picturesque market squares and ancient churches.
In winter the city has a Christmas card feel, and is home to one of the loveliest of the Belgian Christmas Markets. The stalls are centered on Grote Markt (in the shadow of the 13th century Bell Tower) and Simon Stevinplein. You’ll find eye-wateringly good sweets and marzipan, hot chocolate and waffles to warm up with as well as a dedicated hobby and toy fair, and even an ice skating rink!
When you’ve had your fill of Christmas shopping, why not try the famous Belgian beer in one of the traditional beer houses, or a supper of delicious moules frites or Flemish stew. There are several museums and galleries to explore, or you could take in the sights on a horse and carriage ride or boat trip on the picturesque canal.
Getting to Bruges 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!
