Art history culture beaches and of course chocolate – you’ll see it all on a day trip to Bruges! This Bruges coach tour sets off from London taking you on the cross-Channel ferry or Eurotunnel to Calais and then onwards to Belgium to discover the Flemish delights of Bruges.
On this full day trip to Bruges you will arrive in the city in plenty of time for lunch (why not try that classic local dish moules frites – that’s mussels and chips!) and then have plenty of time to wander around this impressive medieval city often called the Venice of the North because of the many canals that weave around the city walls.
As you’ll have all day in this capital city you will have lots of time to really get to know Brugge as it’s known in Dutch. The Markt Market Square is a true delight and a great place to people watch over a coffee and pastry. One of the most famous buildings is the Church of Our Lady with its brick spire reaching over 120m into the sky. And you won’t be able to miss the 13th century belfry with its 48 bells as it often chimes a tune (remember the Colin Farrell film ‘In Bruges’?).
If you like your art no trip to Bruges would be complete without a visit to the Groeningemuseum museum. It’s a lovely building and there are works of arts from Belgian and Flemish artists from impressionism to renaissance style. But if the real lure of this Bruges tour by coach is to sample the fabulous chocolates you won’t be disappointed as you can opt for a tour of a chocolate laboratory!
You can book a day trip to Bruges directly with Into The Blue and there are departures all year round so whether you fancy hitting the beach in the summer soaking up the festive atmosphere around Christmas time or the fresh springtime air and flowers Bruges is a fantastic place to visit by luxury coach any time of year!
