After the success of our tours to the Monaco and Monza Grand Prix, we have now included one of the most famous and popular races on the F1 calendar. The Belgian Grand Prix is held at the superb Spa-Francorchamps race track.
The beautiful town of Valkenburg is our base and you can explore all it has to offer from the castle remains to the underground caves. We will start the tour with a relaxed overnight ferry crossing from Hull to Zeebrugge. Enjoy the cafes, bars and restaurants on board as we sail into the night listening to the superb on board entertainment. On arrival into Belgium we will continue to our hotel in Valkenburg where you will have free time to explore in the afternoon. We will spend two days at the race track enjoying the qualifying and the famous F1 race on the Sunday. On our return to Zeebrugge we will have an en-route visit to the beautiful medieval town of Bruges before enjoying our return overnight crossing.
Please note: We advise that a smaller overnight bag is taken on the overnight crossing with PandO Ferries. Any larger suitcases can be left in the hold on the coach, but cannot be accessed during the sailing.
