Description
The highlights of Belgium await on this getaway, from the beautiful city of Bruges to the coastal town of Ostend. We also pay our respects in Ypres, the scene of a series of battles during the First World War where casualties are believed to have surpassed one million. During our visit we witness the city’s daily act of remembrance, The Last Post, played in honour of those who fell in the Ypres Salient from 1914-1918. At exactly 8pm every evening, the police stop traffic around the Menin Gate Memorial to let the buglers complete the world-famous fanfare; an incredibly moving experience that should be observed first-hand.

Ostend
Welcome to delightful Ostend! Located in the Flemish province of West Flanders, this wonderfully cosmopolitan city attracts coach tours from far and wide. With five and a half miles of glorious, sandy beaches, Ostend is a popular seaside resort, with an attractive esplanade, pier and promenade, with vibrant shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy.
Rich in history, it has many beautiful heritage sites, from the days of Leopold II, the English Monarchy and even the Russian Tsar. During your coach break to Ostend make sure you take a stroll down the famous Albert II Promenade, offering views of the Royal monuments, or for culture, visit the Museum of Modern Art.
Renowned for its many restaurants and lovely cuisine, visit the Fisherman’s Quay where you’ll find a lively and colourful scene, enjoy the local specialities including Dover sole, mussels and shrimp croquettes, all washed down with the local beer. A treasure trove of delights, Ostend has much to offer visitors all year round!


Bruges
Often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’, Bruges is a medieval city that has been suspended in time and is now one of the most visited destinations in Northern Europe.
The picturesque market squares and stunning, winding canals combine to create one of the most beautiful cities you can imagine. Lose yourself for a few hours on one of the canal boats as they take you through a real taste of history in this spectacular city.
You can’t take a coach break to this fantastic city without checking out two of Belgium's most passionate pastimes; chocolate and beer. Both are certainly looked after in some style in Bruges- with fine chocolatiers for your indulgence and quaint cafes and bars from which to watch the world go by with one of their famous brews!
