Highlights

 

Ghent, in Belgium, is a stunning, vibrant city with a thriving restaurant and bar scene amid it's network of narrow canals overseen by dozens of antique brick houses. Ghent’s medieval past is to be found in a string of superb Gothic buildings including St-Baafskathedraal, whose principal treasure is Jan van Eyck’s remarkable Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, one of the world’s most important paintings.

 

Supporting the cathedral are the likes of St-Niklaaskerk, with its soaring arches and pencil-thin turrets; the forbidding castle of the counts of Flanders, Het Gravensteen; and the delightful medieval guildhouses of the Graslei. 

We will visit in the peaceful Winter weeks before the busy Christmas Markets, perfect if you're not keen on crowds! There is plenty to see and do in this wonderful small city.

Getting to Ghent with us couldn't be easier! We will pick you up in our comfortable, heated coach from central London or Bexley and travel via the Channel Tunnel straight to the heart of this wonderful winter wonderland. Join us for a winter day trip to remember!
