Bruges’ cobbled streets, enchanting architecture, quaint squares and beautiful canals make the compact city the perfect family weekend away. Monika and her family explore this World Heritage city on a weekend break from the UK.
Bruges, situated in Flanders Belgium is a little over an hour’s drive from Calais or Dunkerque. The whole city centre of Bruges is so pretty! everything is walking distance from our city centre hotel, the family-friendly Novotel. The well-preserved buildings radiate history within the moated city walls,. Everywhere you look there is intricate detail in the architecture. Walking in Bruges is a like walking onto a fairytale film set, but don’t just take our word for it… watch the film over on the exciting new travel video platform, Travelcast TV
We picked up a free, Flemish, walking guide for the kids- Brugge door kinder ogen– from the tourist office and use that to shape our weekend. I highly recommend downloading this, even if you don’t speak Flemish. Use a translator app and you get the jest of it. Let the kids take the lead! Bruges is a fabulous city for a weekend break and so easy to access from the UK.
