The “Venice of the North”, Bruges is breathtaking and one of the most interesting cities in all of Europe.
Known as "The Venice of the North", a day trip to Bruges from London is a must for anyone wanting to tour Belgium. Our guided tours take you around this stunning UNESCO world heritage city, offering the kind of charm rarely seen elsewhere. Bruges is in the Dutch speaking Northern part of Belgium and is a postcard perfect stop on any trip to Europe.
Described by many as a fairy-tale city, marvel at the labyrinth of canals that break up the mediaeval charm of your surrounds, treading the historic cobbled laneways through a city that oozes charm and beauty.
Explore the canals, chocolate shops and Belgian beer houses (amongst others) which make this city fantastic to visit at any time of the year!
We leave at 8am (sharp) from our London Eye departure point and begin our tour to Belgium, driving south out of London to Folkestone where we take the Channel Tunnel under the sea to France before continuing our journey by road to Bruges.
We will make a quick comfort stop on the way out of London, and there are toilet facilities on board the Eurotunnel.
Don't forget your valid passport and travel visa (if your nationality requires one).
On arrival in Bruges you can begin exploring this wonderful historic Belgian city! You can explore the city at your own leisure - we will provide you with a map, and some recommendations of things to see and do. Your guide will offer an optional walking tour - you can decide on the day whether you want to join, or if you prefer to discover the delights for yourself.
After spending around 5 hours exploring Bruges and the Christmas markets, hopefully full of chocolate, beer and mussels; we'll head back to London, driving through Belgium and France and taking the Channel Tunnel back to England.
We'll arrive back in London at approximately 9.30pm. The tour will end at the same place we started - opposite the London Eye and very close to Waterloo Station.
