Itinerary

  • Dec 27

    Local departure by coach then onward to Bruges for a three-night stay.

  • Dec 28 - Bruges & Ypres

    Free morning for you to independently explore Bruges. This charming city, also known as the ‘Venice of North’, is considered one of the most beautiful and well-preserved small medieval cities in Europe. Bruges has stunning buildings that dominate the main square, including the Gothic clock, town hall and medieval belfry, and also features a network of canals crossed with pretty humpback bridges connecting winding cobbled streets that lead to picturesque market squares. Late afternoon, why not join our optional excursion to Ypres? Spend time at leisure exploring the town centre. See the market square, dominated by the huge Cloth Hall, with its magnificent belfry. This evening pause at the Menin Gate, where the Last Post ceremony is performed daily. The Menin Gate is a memorial dedicated to the missing and bears the names of 54,896 officers and men who died between 1914 and 15 August 1917. Every evening since 11 November 1929, buglers have sounded the emotive Last Post at 8pm beneath the archway. We return to Bruges after the Last Post Ceremony.

    Enjoy an included excursion to the city of Antwerp. Set on the River Scheldt, Antwerp is a delightful town with charming narrow streets, large squares and a cafe culture. Its history dates back to the Middle Ages and is a hidden gem with its 16th Century City Hall and rows of elaborate guildhalls topped with golden statues. At its centre is the centuries old Diamond District which houses thousands of diamond traders, cutters and polishers. Its medieval streets feature many Renaissance monuments and the ornate Cathedral, which houses paintings by Rubens.

  • Dec 30 - Ostend

    En route to Calais for our return journey home, we make an included visit to Ostend, the ‘Queen of Belgium’s seaside resorts’. Ostend gained its resort-town popularity from the Belgian Kings, Leopold I and II, who faithfully spent their summers here. A stroll along the promenade offers views of the Royal monuments and other historical sights.
