The incredibly picturesque city of Brugge filled with historic canals, atmospheric cobbled streets and medieval architecture is an absolute delight to explore
This beautifully preserved Flemish gem is undoubtedly one of the prettiest and most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe whose prosperity reached a peak in the 13th & 14th centuries, through the manufacture and trading of high-quality textiles. All this wealth left an impressive legacy of medieval town-houses and architectural masterpieces like the Gothic-style Town Hall and the magnificent 13th Century Belfry where the ascent to its summit is rewarded with magnificent panoramic views.
The four star Academie Hotel is situated right in the historic golden triangle of Brugge, just 50 metres from the famous Minnewater (Lake of Love) and with easy access on foot to the city centre. The stylish rooms all feature air-conditioning, telephone and satellite television. Other facilities include a restaurant and bar, plus a lovely winter garden and terrace. Lift to all floors.
Please note that as with many hotels in Brugge, the Academie hotel is situated on a narrow street that is not accessible by large coach. Accessing the hotel will involve a short walk of 150 meters between the coach drop off area and the hotel entrance.
Three nights' accommodation with breakfast
Return Eurotunnel journeys.
Return travel by luxury air conditioned coach.
Due to restrictions placed upon coaches and large vehicles in Brugge, only coaches dropping off/collecting passengers with luggage to/from their hotel are allowed access to the inner city. For all excursion days, passengers will be required to walk to the Kanaaleiland coach park (approx. 15 minute walk). Alternatively local taxies are available for a small fee.
Early departure for our journey south to Folkestone and through the Eurotunnel to France. We then continue on to Belgium and the Academie Hotel in the delightful city of Brugge where we stay for the next three nights.
A day at leisure to discover the delights of this wonderful medieval city. Perhaps take a horse-drawn carriage ride to discover historic churches, picturesque cobbled streets and those irresistible lace and chocolate shops or maybe take a boat trip along the stunning winding canals and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the city that has been dubbed ‘The Venice of the North’.B
A further day at leisure in Brugge or join us for a drive through the Flanders countryside to the Tyne Cot memorial before continuing to Artillery Wood Cemetery where the famous Welsh poet Hedd Wyn is buried. You will also have an opportunity to see the Welsh National memorial at Langemark. We then continue into Ypres, a town with strong associations with the First World War. Highlights here include the Cloth Hall and the ‘In Flanders Fields Museum’, plus the famous Menin Gate, placed there in honour of those who perished.B
We leave Brugge and return to the Eurotunnel terminal at Calais for our journey back to Folkestone and home to North Wales.B
