“Visit and You Will Fall in Love With Bruges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

We have now been to Bruges several times and it still remains on the top of our "Must Visit" cities whenever we are in Europe. It is old, quaint, picture postcard perfect and and any of the other over used descriptions of European cities. Except in this case, they are all true!

Be sure and spend at least a couple of days. Stroll the streets, take a canal tour, take a horse carriage ride, stop in any of the chocolate shops, beer bars and on and on and on....! There is so much to do in such a small place. The people are wonderfully friendly and helpful and we don't think you can find a bad place to eat.

If we sound in love with Bruges, it's because we are. Just read the other reviews, then, spend a day or two here and we're sure it will become your favorite city too!

“Bored”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

We took the city bus tour with a driver who obviously and done this trip far to many times!! Although he was friendly enough he did nothing to enhance our tour of the city! The recorded info was quite good and doing the tour gave a good idea of the location of most of the "Things to see and Do".

“A fine day out..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

I travelled to Bruges with a friend on a day trip on a coach, and was not sure what to expect as I thought it would be a long day. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed every bit of it. Bruges is easily reached via the Channel Tunnel. Just 35 mins takes you into Calais. From here it’s about 1.5 hours drive into Bruges. We were dropped off by some parkland (the toilets are available here if you have (like me) been avoiding the use of the coach toilet. By the way the toilets in Bruges are exceptionally clean and the charge for one admission is around 20p. Well worth the charge as you go in and come out feeling refreshed and not with that nausea feeling. You walk through the parkland onto the other side which literally takes you into the centre of town. Nice, pleasant scenery as you walk across the canals. The first bridge brought us on to “the lake of love” (so called due to the idyllic surroundings). We then walked across the bridge, turned right and arrived at the Flea Market by the canal. Here you can also book a boat which shows you the town in half an hour. The cost is around 7.60 Euros. Walk through the flea market and take the first left turn and a short walk will take you into the main square, past some wonderful chocolate souvenir shops. Very tempting handmade chocolates and some real nice shops selling lace etc. Bruge has 2 squares – the largest one is the Market Square and the 2nd square is the Burg. Some wonderful buildings are found here. Market square is the commercial centre of the city. Situated here is the Belfry tower & the Cloth Hall. On the northern end is the Provincial Court. There are plenty of cafes in and around the square. Don’t forget to try the chips from one of the mobile units costing 2.75 Euros for a large portion (trust me they do taste much better than any McDonalds or Burger King!) You can also take a horse carriage ride from here costing 10 Euros. You can also hop on to one of the yellow buses marked “tourist bus” which takes you around town. The Square is a perfect place to start and end the day in Bruges. There is no time to get bored. So if you are thinking of a day in Bruges go ahead and try it! Just make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes on to tackle the cobbled streets.

“Tourist in Bruges”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Bruges is a beautiful city. Normally I try to avoid the usual "tourist attractions" when away but in Bruges I found it best to go with the flow,canal trip,museums,galleries,bars,even a horse carriage ride & it was the best way. If going by Eurostar found it better to read info screens rather than timetables at Brussels,sometimes the platforms change.Most things are within wallking distance & easy to fiind after day or two, but unless you know way around Bruges,best to get taxi from station on arrival.,only about 8euros.Great place for short relaxing break.

“A living and real Disney city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Bruges is a beautiful little city, easy enough to get to from south east England including London, and worth the trip for lunch and wandering. Parking is ample as are the restaurants and coffee shops. I went with a three year old and she found it all amusing, not over busy and managed to wangle a free chocolate or cookie in every chocolate shop we went into. That was so typical of the warm welcome you always get from the Belgians. Even though this is a popular tourist destination, you don't feel like a stranger and you're always treated politely without ever feeling as if you are part of a herd of tourists. If you have an extra day, check out the beautiful city of Lier, just as pretty as Bruges but without the tourists.
