Truly an experience not to be missed!
Friday We depart Lincolnshire in the morning taking comfort stops en-route to our ferry crossing from Dover to Calais. Once we touch down on European soil, we continue on towards Belgium and our hotel.
Saturday For today’s festivities, we head to Belgium’s capital Brussels for ‘Winter Wonders’ in the heart of this magnificent city. Shop for your stocking filllers along a 2km trail of stalls, gaze upon the magical ‘Son & Lumière illuminations’ on the Grand Place and experience an authentic European Christmas market in its city centre. Also, why not sample a variety of shops and restaurants where you can nish your Christmas shopping and sample some local delicacies.
Sunday For today’s excursion we make the short journey north to Bruges. Firstly we visit ‘Rooses Chocolate World’, a chocoholic’s paradise. Here you can view a demonstration of how this delicious chocolate is made before a scrumptious tasting session. Afterwards you can explore Bruges city centre and it’s captivating Christmas market offering food, drink and gift stores galore. During our stay we shall also enjoy a relaxing canal cruise *(Subject to the canal not being frozen) through the heart of the city and see Bruges from a different angle.
