Only a few hours away from London, Bruges is the perfect destination for a mini break.
We took advantage of a Eurostar sale and decided to visit this fairy tale city. We stayed 3 days, which gives you enough time to explore this beautiful city plus also fit in an afternoon trip to nearby city, Ghent.
Our hotel was literally a palace, Hotel Duke's Palace former residence of the Burgundian aristoracy - perfectly located in the centre of Bruges. Five star hotel with a five star service.
Bruges is a UNESCO Wolrd Heritage Site since 2000 and when walking its cobbles streets you automatically feel like in a different era.
Bruges at night is magical.
Places not to miss when you visit Bruges:
Minnewater- or Lake of Love and Begijnhof - a convent still functioning.
To end, a few photos from Ghent.
