Bruges & The Brussels Carpet of Flowers

Bruges

Thu 11 to Sun 14 Aug 2022: A 4 Day Coach Holiday to Bruges and The Brussels Carpet of Flowers with Johnsons Coaches

Book Now

Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th August 2022

 

One of the most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe; Bruges is famous for its lace shops, magnificent churches and, of course, chocolate. A holiday in Bruges is like taking a trip back in time as you wander through cobbled streets surrounded by historic buildings as horse drawn carriages go by and a trip on one of the canal boats gives you a unique view of ‘the Venice of the north’. Our tour also includes a visit to the wonderful Brussels ‘Carpet of Flowers’ four-day extravaganza - when the Grand Place is transformed with over 500,000 begonias and dahlias forming a vast floral carpet covering some 75 m (246 ft) long and 24 m (79 ft) wide… A truly magnificent spectacular!

Thursday

We head for Dover and the ferry crossing to Calais. Arriving in Bruges during the afternoon we are free to settle into our new surroundings prior to our included dinner at the hotel.

Friday

A day at leisure in the beautiful medieval City of Bruges. With its many fine old buildings, Bruges is 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.

Saturday

This morning we drive to Brussels where we enjoy the ‘Carpet of Flowers’ in the Grand Place. Every two years the Belgians cover it with a huge flower display. 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. In the afternoon, we are at leisure in Brussels.

Sunday

Departing Bruges we visit the beautiful town of Ypres. See the market square, overlooked by the dominating medieval Cloth Hall with its impressive 70-metre-high Belfry, or perhaps visit the most important war memorial in Ypres, the Menin Gate. After lunch we return to Calais and our ferry crossing back to Dover, arriving home during the evening.
