A festive beauty!
This short break to Bruges is a great little pick me up after all the Christmas work is done. Bruges is always an incredibly romantic and beautiful city to visit and the first few days of January are a perfect time to go. Its Winter Glow festive programme is still in full swing but it is much quieter and so much more fun to enjoy. The prices aren't bad either, especially as you will be staying in the heart of the city at the comfortable Ibis Bruges Centre. Get your 2024 off to a great start...
An ideal choice for:
* Friends and family looking to get away together and have some fun
* Anyone wanting to just enjoy a great value post-Christmas break
* Anyone wanting to experience a short European weekend
