Bruges

The capital of the West Flanders province is known as the Venice of the North due to its network of canals. There's a fairytale quality to the city, with its cobbled, medieval streets and chocolate-box architecture, exemplified by the picturesque Markt which you will find in the heart of the city.  We’ll take you to a workshop where lace is made – here you’ll be able to watch the craftsmen and women at work and learn about the history of embroidery in Belgium. We’ll also take you on a sightseeing cruise along the canals to give you a different perspective on the city. For a real insider experience, spend an evening with gregarious Marc Nyssen at his 18th century farmstead in nearby rural Damme. Relax at his large wooden table and enjoy a delicious meal of farm-reared beef and piquant apple pie, as Marc regales you with tales of his family's five generations of farming in the district.

Brussels

Belgium's capital city is one of three centres of the European Union, and a former fortress town dating back to the 10th century. Your Travel Director will show you the city's many highlights including the impressive Grote Markt, one of the most important and memorable sights in Belgium. You will also have a chance to see the remarkable space-age Atomium, which stands at more than 100 metres tall. Brussels is a wonderful city in which to relax, so we’ll give you plenty of free time too. People-watch in one of the cafés or join a beer tour to discover why Brussels is world-renowned for the quality and variety of its ales.

War and memorials

Discover why Belgium played such a significant part in the two World Wars.

At Passchendaele's Memorial Museum, you will walk through a replica trench and imagine what it was like for the brave soldiers of a century ago. The Great War produced exceptional poetry, and in Essex Farm Cemetery you’ll find yourself at the place where Lieutenant Colonel John McCrea wrote the emotive piece, In Flanders Fields.
