Itinerary

Description

Join us for a truly unique break this summer to see the spectacular Brussels Flower Carpet! Established in 1971 and held every two years since 1986 in the city’s beautiful central square, Grand-Place, the intricate Flower Carpet is 75m long and 24m wide, featuring 500,000 flowers displayed in a stunning pattern. On a stroll through the square, soak up the fragrant smell of begonias and the mesmerising display of colour set against the backdrop of the Grand-Place’s impressive architecture. On this fantastic break, we also spend time in vibrant Ghent and scenic Bruges – sure to make for a brilliant summer getaway!

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

Ferry to Calais and on to our hotel. 

Day 2 – Brussels Flower Carpet

Today we head to Brussels and the cobbled Grand-Place to see the magnificent Flower Carpet. Created by around 100 volunteer gardeners who set up this giant floral puzzle in less than eight hours, this unique event is a spectacular sight to behold. Afterwards, enjoy time at leisure in the city with the opportunity to find a place for dinner before the coach takes us back to our hotel.

Day 3 – Ghent & Bruges

This morning we head to the vibrant port city of Ghent. One of Belgium’s oldest cities, no other city in the country has as many classified buildings, so make sure to admire the medieval and classical architecture here.

Next we visit the lovely city of Bruges. Known as ‘the Venice of northern Europe’, Bruges is a beautifully-preserved medieval city of picturesque canals, impressive squares of pretty guild houses and narrow cobbled lanes crammed with fine chocolate shops, lace boutiques and souvenir shops. We enjoy time at leisure in Bruges, with the chance to find a place for dinner, before the coach takes us back to our hotel.

 Day 4

Travel back to Calais for our return ferry home, stopping en-route in Lille, France.
