See & Do
Explore the winding cobbled streets of the World Heritage city of Bruges, dubbed the Venice of the North for its canal-laced centre. Take a boat ride along the canals to get a duck’s eye view of the city’s architectural beauty, or clip-clop through its narrow streets by horse and buggy.
There are scores of museums and galleries to visit, including the medieval church of Our Lady to the ancient town hall. Bruges is at its most atmospheric in winter, when its medieval buildings are wrapped in mist, and blazing fires offset the chilly weather.
Inside Bruges is an interior design festival with a twist. This outdoor festival has florists, designers, carpenters and more scattered through Bruge’s medieval streets.
Enjoy three days of revelry in the market square in the Bruges Triple Days festival.
