Bruges

With its pleasant ‘chocolate box’ scenery, the quaint Belgian city of Bruges has won many admirers. Take a stroll through wending alleyways, along cobbled streets and delve into medieval buildings, Bruges is one of the best preserved historic cities in Europe.

Ideal for family getaways or romantic weekends, Bruges is a cosy and inviting place to spend time, whether you’re exploring its historic centrepieces, taking a trip on the canal waterways, relaxing in the many atmospheric cafes or tempting yourself with its famous locally-produced chocolate.
