"Give into that warm, fuzzy Christmas feeling and join us on this overnight break in Belgium. Bruges Christmas Market is one of the most beautiful Christmas Markets in Europe. Youll feel like youve stepped into a fairy-tale at this pretty medieval city. The streets are dressed like gingerbread houses with twinkling fairy lights. Follow the scent of fresh waffles lingering in the streets whilst browsing the unique stalls in search of that last-minute present for someone special. You could even hop on a horse-drawn carriage along the historic winding streets."
Travel to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. From Calais head to Bruges stopping in Ostend, a city which boasts a wide variety of good-value eateries and ever-popular brasseries, for lunch to be purchased. Boutique browsers will be spoilt in Ostend as there are plenty of shops to discover. We arrive at the hotel with time to check in and drop off our overnight bag before purchasing our evening meal. There are many restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.
After breakfast enjoy free time in Bruges to explore the magical Christmas Market. Medieval Bruges, with its beautiful setting, is host to one of the most famous Christmas Markets in Belgium offering the best of winter products, Christmas gifts, warm gluhwein and snacks. The cosy Christmas atmosphere helps make Bruges Christmas Market one of the most vibrant markets of the country. There are plenty of restaurants here for lunch to be purchased before travelling back to Calais for the return Eurotunnel crossing.B
