4 days








£289.00 pp


Ostend is a cosmopolitan city with a harbour and yacht-basin. Visitors will be amazed by all there is to see and do. All year round, many activities take place. As the ‘City by the Sea’, over five and a half miles of sandy beaches invite you to some delightful sunbathing and a refreshing dip in the North Sea. After frolicking in the sun, take a walk down the promenade where you will find many shops, bars, and restaurants. One of Ostend’s main, and maybe lesser known, trump cards is the gastronomy. What better place to sample the sea’s delicacies than at the seaside?

Bruges

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 picture-postcard 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, horse-drawn 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!

Ypres

Ypres is now most famous for its’ World War One heritage and is surrounded by the Ypres Salient battlefields, where many cemeteries, memorials and war museums honour the battles that unfolded in this area during World War I. After being entirely destroyed in the war, many important buildings were carefully reconstructed, including Gothic-style Sint-Maartenskathedraal (St. Martin’s Cathedral) and its soaring spire. Now its museums, memorials and daily Last Post ceremony make Ypres a popular and moving destination for visitors from all nations. We will visit in the afternoon and evening to allow you to enjoy dinner in the town before sharing the emotion of the Last Post Ceremony at 8pm.
