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.

Day One

An early departure to Folkestone where we board the Eurotunnel for our journey to France. We then cross the border into Belgium and continue on to the Mercure Hotel in Ostend, known as the 'City by the Sea' with over five and a half miles of sandy beaches plus many shops, bars and restaurants.

Day Two

Enjoy a day at leisure in Ostend to explore the city and search for gifts and tasty delicacies at the Christmas Market. The entire city and many of its landmarks will be adorned with heart-warming Christmas lights including the main shopping street which will be shrouded by a breath-taking canopy of twinkling lights. Other attractions include the Mu.ZEE art museum, the impressive neoclassical Royal Galleries and the Mercator; a three-masted 1932 sailing ship once used for Belgian Navy training purposes, now a nautical museum.


Day Three

This morning we travel to beautiful Brugge, an immensely picturesque city renowned for its splendid medieval architecture. Upon arrival we will be greeted by a guide for a walking tour through the quaint cobbled streets to discover the city’s hidden gems and must-see heritage and architectural highlights. The remainder of the day will be at leisure to further explore this charming city and the pretty Christmas Market’s festively decorated stalls and fabulous open-air skating rink.


Day Four

We leave Ostend and return to the Eurotunnel terminal at Calais for our journey back to Folkestone and home to North Wales.
