Belgium - an Introduction

There are a few people out there who avoid holidaying in Belgium because they consider the country to be boring with very little to do. However, aside from the beer, mussels and chocolate, you will find a country that captivates even the negative-thinking traveller into joining a coach trip to Belgium. It'll take just one coach holiday or day trip before you realise what you've been missing out and end up planning future breaks here.

For those who do not already know, Belgium is a country of two halves. You will find Flanders to the north of Belgium where everyone speaks Dutch but to the south, you will find Wallonia where French is the language of choice. Flanders and Wallonia lie alongside each other, interspersed with fabulous historic cities where travelling between the two is easy.

Belgium is constantly reinventing itself and this is represented through the recent state of the art galleries in Mons and Leuven. Travel to Liége where you can marvel at the Grand Curtius and the architectural masterpiece that is the Liége-Guillemins Station which opened in 2009.


Bruges is one of Europe's most visited medieval cities filled with picturesque Squares to explore and tranquil canals to cruise along. Chocoholics will love the chocolate shops where everything is handmade. Do visit the local Breweries too if you happen to enjoy an ice cool Belgian beer. Combine the old with the new on a day trip to Antwerp, the home of a girl's best friend – diamonds! Pay homage to the fallen on a World War One battlefield tour to Ypres where you can experience The Last Post. See the ruined Cistercian Abbey in Villers-la-Ville

Belgium tours typically include; return coach travel, return ferry or channel tunnel crossings, accommodation, meals and a variety of included or optional excursions so you can really see the best of the resort you're visiting. You will be able to sample Belgium food during your break as the majority of tours tend to be Bed and Breakfast or Half Board.

Things to do

Whether you're going for the chocolate or culture, Belgium has something to offer everyone. 

Wander down this medieval city's delightful cobbled streets to its bustling Market Square. Here you will find traditional lace shops and vast arrays of market stalls. If you have a sweet tooth then a visit to the Chocolate Museum is a must. Plus the wonders of the Christmas Market make for a fantastic seasonal trip!

Ypres is riddled with history and charm, and is ideal for those who want to learn a little bit more about Belgium's war-related past. Be sure not to miss the Menin Gate and the battlefields of the 'Ypres Salient', home to many battles during the Great War. The Hills of Flanders are fascinating, and Messines and Broodseinde Ridge are a must if you'd like to walk in the steps of war heroes.

This traditional seaside resort is a popular destination for anyone looking for a bit for sun, sea and sand. You can either relax on the beach or take a stroll to the beautiful promenades and charming shops. Either way, this quaint fishing port will have a spot of something for everyone.

Brussels is the stunning capital of Belgium. The Grand Place is a fascinating location to sit and take in the atmosphere, or you can wander around the maze of streets to find the little Mannekin Pis. With bundles of restaurants and shops, you'll be sure to be kept entertained.
