Bruges & Ghent Tour Sample itinerary

Print Itinerary
Day 1 Eurostar

Journey from London to Bruges

After taking the Eurostar from London St Pancras, you will make your way to Bruges via Brussels, why not begin your discovery of Bruges with a romantic horse-drawn carriage tour. It's the perfect way to experience the unique atmosphere and spellbinding architecture of the city. Alternatively, explore the city on foot to find delightful meandering alleys and charming waterways.

Day 2 Bruges

Breathtaking Bruges

Designated a UNESCO world heritage site, the city of Bruges combines an enchanting mix of medieval mystery and modern-day charm. Bruges' religious artefacts are both fascinating and plentiful, from the Basilica of the Holy Blood - resting place of the city's most revered relic, to The Church of Our Lady with its sculpture of Madonna and Child by Michelangelo. No trip here would be complete without taking in the majesty of Sint- Salvatorskathedraal, the oldest church in Bruges where you'll discover medieval tombs, tapestries and a rich collection of Flemish paintings.

Day 3 Ghent

Explore the Grandeur of Ghent

Just a short journey by rail, Ghent is a delightful destination for a day trip. A city of marvellous contrasts, it boasts medieval towers, bridges and turrets alongside a thriving cultural scene. Pay a visit to Saint Bavo's Cathedral - this treasure trove of artistic delights is home to the world's most stolen work of art, The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by the Van Eyck brothers.

Day 4 Eurostar 2

A Final Taste of Bruges

On your final day in Bruges, perhaps head to Minnewater for a relaxing boat tour. As you drift gently past the fairy-tale architecture, you'll understand why Bruges is fully deserving of its moniker, the Venice of the North. After bidding farewell to Bruges, you'll depart for London by train via Brussels.
