Day 1 Morning departure for the journey to Dover and the sea crossing to Calais. You will then continue to the city of Ghent for a three night stay.
Day 2 Spend today discovering Ghent. A vibrant, medieval fairy-tale town boasting bold, beautiful architecture in charming, winding lanes. Walk around old squares and alongside canals enjoying the different architectural styles. Enjoy the sights of the magnificent St. Bavo’s Cathedral, the Castle of the Count and the famous Graslei area. This is a wonderful area in which to stroll and sip coffee in canal-side cafes. In the evening, walk through the enchanting evening landscape and take in the many light installations which have popped up around the city. Either
follow one of the light walks independently for a sparkling evening, or join a tour which will reveal extra information about the festival and the city.
Day 3 This morning, head to Belgium’s capital city of Brussels. Admire the spectacular Grote Markt a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the city’s most interesting architecture. The cobbled square is dominated by the Gothic splendour of the Town Hall and opulent guildhalls. The city is also known for the Manneken Pis, a small and amusing fountain which is very popular. Beer is a key attraction in Brussels, whether you choose to enjoy a leisurely beer whilst watching the world go by or take in a tasting at one of the many brewery tours. See the
imposing Stock Exchange, the Royal Palace, St. Nicolas Church and the impressive Atomium. Brussels is full of possibilities for a fascinating day.
Day 4 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey.
