Bruges and Lille Christmas Markets

Swap the boring rain and British High Street for the yuletide atmosphere and traditions of two breath-taking European Christmas Markets, a wonderful way to enter to the festive spirit with enough time to sightsee and explore two of the prettiest towns in Europe.  

 

  • Friday Day 1 -

We make our way to Folkestone for the short Channel Tunnel crossing to Calais.  We then continue through Northern France to the Best Western Plus Hotel Alize in the city centre of Mouscron for a 3 night stay.  

  • Saturday Day 2 -

We make our way to the Lille Christmas Markets where the streets around the Grand Place and the Place Rihour become a riot of twinkling lights, crackling fires and festively decorated wooden chalets bursting with Christmas gifts, decorations and delicious festive food from all over the world.  The winding cobbled streets of the old town are lined with the cosy brasseries and restaurants, whilst you can head for the lights of the funfair and Christmas tree on the Place du General de Gaulle where the rich scents of mulled wine, cinnamon sweets and almonds hang in the air.  Give your feet a break and take a ride on the enormous ferris wheel for breath-taking views over one of the prettiest places in Europe.  

  • Sunday Day 3 - 

After our breakfast it is the time to enjoy the family atmosphere of the Bruges Christmas Markets.  The town looks traditionally festive and Christmas Stalls overflow with original present ideas from tasty handmade chocolates to wooden gifts and Christmas decorations.  The romantice city of Bruges is known as the Venice of the North - with its cobblestoned streets and picturesque canals.  It is a delight to wander around, and dont forget to try a Belgian waffle smothered in whipped cream and hot syrup.  

  • Monday Day 4 - 

We spend some time this morning in our host resort of Ypres, before we head back through Northern France and to Calais for the short tunnel crossing back to the UK.  We re-join the motorways back to the south west.

About Our Tours

We have been operating tours and mini breaks around the U.K. and abroad for a number of years, and by far the most popular innovation that we have introduced in recent years, is to offer a virtually door to door service. Picking up as near as practically possible to your home in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire means you don’t have to worry about getting your luggage to the coach, and avoids the additional cost of having to use taxis.

By using our small fleet of mini-buses, we are able to keep the pick-up time to a minimum and get you on your tour coach and on your way as soon as possible. This way your holiday starts on the first morning. Once your holiday is over we will collect you again from the coach park and return you home.
