    Bruges at night
    Bruges Guided Walking Tour

    Join us as we explore the beautiful and historic town of Bruges. We will enjoy a guided walk around the historical centre which will be a fantastic way to learn the culture and history of the town from a local. The charm of Bruges is in its historic houses and pretty canals that encircle the middle of town and we’ll explore these beautiful examples of centuries old buildings and infrastructure. On the tour we’ll also visit the city’s two most famous sights, the Church of Our Lady, with the second largest brickwork church tower in the world and the Market Square, which is surrounded by historical sites including the 12th century Belfry.

    The Belfort tower, Sluis
    Half Day: Sluis and Coastal Drive

    We’ll take a scenic coastal drive crossing just over the border into The Netherlands, visiting the small town of Sluis. Despite being a small town there is a wealth of history here, with the place itself being more than 700 years old. The town was one of the first to be captured by the Spanish, being held by them for almost 20 years before gaining freedom in the Eighty Years’ War, which ultimately led to the Netherlands regaining its independence. There is a pretty canal here which is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink from a local café.

    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    Ghent
    Ghent Guided Walking Tour

    When visiting the lovely city of Ghent, we’ll be given the option of taking a guided walking tour in order to find out more about its history and culture, travelling to some of the city’s most interesting attractions. The city was at one time the second largest city north of the Alps and evidence of this is apparent throughout Ghent in the number of historic buildings that are here. Some of the most impressive of these historic buildings are the city's Belfry, St Bavo's Cathedral, the castle and St Nicholas' Church.

    Ghent
    Half Day: Ghent
    Comprising a mixture of French and Flemish cultures, Ghent is often referred to as the historic heart of Flanders and is certainly filled with wonderful things to do. This charming destination is home to a number of attractions, such as the Graslei port and Saint Bavo Cathedral. It too has a historic belfry which we’ll be able to visit while we’re there, as well as enjoying a spot of shopping or trying out one of the many cafes or restaurants in the city.
