Trains to Ghent

Explore Ghent by rail

A weekend in Ghent is a dream for history buffs, culture vultures and art lovers.

Every summer, the city comes alive as Gentse Feesten takes over, bringing nearly three weeks of music, theatre shows, exhibitions and fireworks, while the winter darkness is chased away each new year by the stunning Light Festival.

Art lovers and amateur sleuths should explore St Bavo's Cathedral to see if they can get to the bottom of a mysterious vanishing. The Ghent Altarpiece has been hidden in a salt mine, hunted by Nazis and nearly destroyed countless times. Since 1934, the Just Judges panel has been missing and the case is still very much open and begging to be solved.

With tickets from £34.50* one way and trains leaving London up to ten times a day, you can plan the perfectly timed Ghent getaway.

So sit back, relax and let us whisk you away…
