Grand Burstin Hotel, Folkestone
Looking not unlike a majestic ocean liner, the Grand Burstin towers over Folkestone’s attractive harbour, with an excellent choice of facilities and a full programme of live cabaret. Take a break at the Grand Burstin and dine in style, unwind in relaxed surroundings, maybe even enjoy a little light exercise in the Pavilion Leisure Club. And for the evenings, perhaps best of all, is the entertainment... renowned as one of the UK’s great entertainment hotels, the Grand Burstin’s resident team put on the glitz and glamour for a different cabaret spectacular every evening.

Bruges, once a flourishing trading centre, with its wealthy merchants’ homes built lovingly and to last. Through time, the city slumbered as a forgotten backwater, but its rich heritage and picturepostcard beauty could not remain hidden forever and inevitably Bruges was rediscovered as an unspoilt treasure. Visitors now flock to explore the cobbled streets and old guild houses in the Market Place, but it is the canals, with their ancient humped bridges, that create its unique character and which earned it the title of the ‘Venice of the North’. Small enough to explore by foot, horsedrawn carriage or canal boat, there is much to see - museums and art flourish, good restaurants abound and pretty shops sell lace, Flemish tapestry, specialty beers and chocolates…wonderful! (Don’t forget your passport!)
England’s most famous cathedral city, sits in one of the most attractive corners of rural Kent. The majestic cathedral watches proudly over the charming, narrow streets and old buildings of this wondrous city - a delightful mix of architecture, history, art, culture, museums, shops of every description, visitor attractions and good restaurants...something for everyone!
