On day 2 we take you to central Brussels. The Christmas market offers a wealth of Christmas gift ideas and treats from handmade toys and crafts to seasonal gastronomic delights! Don’t miss the festively decorated Place St Catherine as well as the smaller markets and the magnificent Grand Place and fish market.
As an optional extra you can sample traditional, delicious Belgium cuisine with a 3-course meal at the award winning Chez Leon Restaurant in central Brussels. Price: £25 per person. This must be booked in advance. The meal will be taken at around 17.30-18.00 hours.
On day 3 we check out of our hotel and make our way to the ‘chocolate and lace’ city of Bruges. Discover the Mediaeval architecture, quaint cobbled streets, picturesque network of canals and UNESCO World Heritage Centre. The Christmas market is famed for its beautifully wrapped chocolates, colourful sweets and handmade decorations. On the way home we visit a wine and beer warehouse. Please remember all items must be for personal consumption and Customs and Excise suggested limits must be adhered to. Return back later on.
