Bruge is a fairytale medieval city whose fabric has been so well preserved that a visit feels like a step back in time. Attractive canals, colourful buildings and a maze of cobbled streets give the center a unique and wonderful atmosphere. We also visit the Belgian capital, the beautiful city of Ghent.

The four star Academie Hotel is set in the historic “golden triangle” of Bruges.

Air Conditioning, Hot drinks facilities, Lift & Wifi.


Sunday We leave Cornwall early in the morning and travel to Dover for our ferry crossing to Calais. Our journey takes us through France and into Belgium.

Monday Our coach will take us on a tour to Ghent. This lovely town is every bit as beautiful and does in fact have more listed buildings than the whole of the rest of Belgium. We begin with a sightseeing cruise before having time to explore independently.

Tuesday A full day in Bruge to explore this city. The center is a UNESCO cultural heritage site and masterpieces are displayed everywhere. There is a wonderful café culture and a vibrant atmosphere day and night.

Wednesday After breakfast we have a morning visit the atmospheric town of Ypres which became famous due to the devastation suffered in WW1. The town is now restored to its former glory but has many features that pay homage to its past. The remainder of our afternoon will be free in Bruge.

Thursday We check out of our hotel and travel to Calais for our ferry crossing to Dover. We then return home to Cornwall.
