Brussels city breaks

Brussels city breaks

2 hrs 1 min from St Pancras Int'l
1 hr 37 mins from Ashford Int’l

From the ornate splendour of the Grand Place to the art nouveau mansions of Ixelles and the glass edifices of the EU Parliament, Brussels is a city of contrasts that defies definition at every turn.

And with Eurostar tickets from as little as £29 one way* and trains leaving up to 10 times a day, your short break can start in London or Kent.

A true mélange of cultures, the city marks the meeting point of French-speaking Wallonia and Dutch-speaking Flanders, so you could find yourself ordering a Belgian waffle in French in the shade of a traditional Dutch guildhall.

As well as a thriving café culture, Brussels also boasts an impressive line-up of galleries but no weekend trip would be complete without a visit to the Manneken Pis. 

Confused? A snifter of lambic beer may not help untangle the quirks of this laidback, friendly city, but it'll certainly wet your whistle before you hit the cobbles again to carry on wandering.
