Considered to be one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe, life in Bruges centres around the market square, bordered by guildhalls and towered over by the magnificent 13th-century belfry. You could take a horse-drawn carriage ride, take a boat ride along the dreamy canals or discover historic churches, picturesque, cobbled streets and of course, those irresistible chocolate shops.
Day 1 Morning collection from your home to join the coach for the drive to Dover for our short Channel crossing to Dunkirk. We continue through France and into Belgium arriving at our hotel in Bruges mid-afternoon.
Day 2 A free day to explore Bruges.
Day 3 A day to explore the city of Ypres. From 1914 for four years Ypres was shelled and reduced to ruins, but it is now as beautiful as it was before the war with much to offer outside its war history. We have included a visit to the remarkable In Flanders Field Museum located within Cloth Hall in the centre of the town.
Day 4 We depart Bruges after breakfast and make our way to the pretty town of Veurne, with time for lunch and to explore. We have an afternoon DFDS crossing to Dover, and continue to the local area arriving mid evening, where our door to door service will be waiting to return you home
