Bruges city breaks

Bruges city breaks

3 hrs 30 mins from St Pancras Int'l

Step back in time and lose yourself in the cobbled streets and hidden courtyards of Bruges, where cocoa is king and the beer menu's endless.

Tickets start from £79 and take you right through from the UK, with a quick change in Brussels.

During the summer, hop on a boat to explore the waterways, marvelling at ancient houses that spring directly from the canal bed, with their overhanging eaves and impossibly low windows.

A stroll down to Minnewater will help work up an appetite for a local speciality that borders on obsession – frites. Want to know more? Make a beeline for the Frietmuseum.

As the temperature drops, the fairytale charm's cranked up a gear with Christmas markets popping up and chilly travellers settling into cosy cafés with mulled wine and warm, crisp waffles to watch the world – and the ice skaters – go by.

If you find yourself dozing off, a brisk 366-step climb up the belfry will soon perk you up, and give you an unparalleled view of the city's spires, squares and myriad chocolate shops.

There's never been a better time for a weekend in Bruges. So sit back and let us whisk you away...
