Your Included Itinerary
As mesmerising as Bruges but with a distinct lack of tourists, Ghent is the sister city to Belgium’s most popular destination. With well preserved medieval architecture and cobbled streets running alongside the traditional canals, you can stop for a coffee and croissant or take a cultural tour of this historic city centre.
Explore beautiful Bruges and the canals that wind through its historic city centre as you take a step back in time in the heart of this magnificent city. Whether it’s chocolatiers or cathedrals, there’s something to grab your attention around every corner in this magical location.
Famous for its hops, a key component in beer production, Poperinge is a great place to wet your whistle and sample some of the finest Belgian beer. Alcohol aside, the city is home to a great mix of history, myth and legend from gallant actions in the First World War to murky tales of its medieval past, Poperinge is a city with more than a few cards up its sleeve.
Ypres is famous for being a historical battleground but if it weren’t for the memorials you’d be hard pressed to realise this modern town was once under rubble. Fashionable, quirky and proud of overcoming all odds, the town of Ypres is a hidden gem on the outskirts of Belgium.
Often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’, Bruges is a medieval city that has been suspended in time and is now one of the most visited destinations in Northern Europe.
Think of a city break in Belgium and you immediately think of Brussels or Bruges, but there’s plenty of hype surrounding Ghent and for good reason.
The city boasts a perfect patchwork of medieval cobbled streets, quaint market squares, striking churches, an ancient castle and plenty of museums which sit on a peninsula of peaceful waterways.
Due to its compact nature Ghent can be discovered on foot, making it the ideal destination for a short coach break. Visit Ghent as part of a National Holidays package and benefit from the convenience of travel, hotel stay and itinerary in one great price!
