The Brussels Flower Carpet is a special event that takes place once every two years in Brussels, where the Grand Place Square is transformed into a mass of colour. The flowering star of the Brussels Flower Carpet is the begonia and 300 of these beautiful flowers are used for every square metre of this floral masterpiece. Belgium is one of the lead producers of the begonia cultivating 60 million every year and this is why it is the flower of choice for the Brussels Flower Carpet.

Thursday

We drive to Folkestone for our Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. We continue through France into Belgium arriving at the Thon Hotel, Brussels for our 3-night stay.

Friday

This morning, we enjoy the 'Carpet of Flowers' in the Grand Place. Every two years the Belgians cover it with a huge flower display - nearly one million fresh begonias. The famous Flower Carpet covers 19,000 square feet and is a stunning sight in the August sunshine. We include entrance to the Town Hall balcony, so you can get an even better, panoramic view of this memorable sight. Afternoon at leisure in Brussels.

Saturday

Today we enjoy an included morning visit to Ghent. Affectionately known as the 'Flower Capital of Belgium', Ghent is a city of great elegance, boasting a wonderful legacy of medieval architecture and imposing monuments. What better way to start our day than with a leisurely guided boat cruise taking in the heart of the medieval centre viewing such sites as St Bravo's Cathedral, the Belfry and St Nicholas' Church and the impressive Castle of the Counts' and the Princes' court. In the afternoon there's some free time to explore this charming city.

Sunday

Departing Brussels, we visit the beautiful medieval city of Bruges, with many fine old buildings, often referred to as the 'Venice of the North'. By the Burg main square, traditions are still alive with lace shops and market stalls, surrounded by picturesque medieval buildings with pretty gables. The more energetic can tackle the 370 steps of the 13th century Belfry of Bruges! Enjoy some free time or take a canal trip or visit the chocolate museum, before we return home during the late evening.
