Yes I looked into doing this.Brugge is one of the most beautiful and expensive towns.

Its about a 1 hour train ride and from memory I think you have to change once in Belgium at maybe Tourcoing? Brussels would be better.TRains from Brussels go directly west to Brugge I think and it takes about 30 minutes.

I ran the maths on this and figured it was even possible to get to Brugge and back from Lille in a single day then back to London from lille quite comfortably via Eurostar so good luck!

There are no trains diretct from lille to Brugge.

By the way if your going nortgh to belgium from Liklle it "foreign territory"

Antwerp is called Anvers in Flemish and the train clarks will ignoe you and pretend the place doent exist

this stumped me for 45 mins till I figured it out!
