Fall under the spell of the picture-perfect town of Bruges this winter.
Billed as the Venice of the north, Bruges with its atmospheric winding canals and historic cobbled streets is a medieval UNESCO World Heritage town and makes for the ideal weekend break.
Eschew the bustling summer crowds and feel like you’ve got the place to yourself in the crisp winter months. From January, right up until the bright yellow daffodils of spring, it’s particularly charming. For a small town, it certainly packs a lot in, so we’ve rounded up our essential sights to tick off, our favourite cultural hotspots and exceptional local dishes, to experience this magical winter wonderland at its best.
A trip to Bruges would not be complete without getting out on the labyrinth of waterways that this quaint town is made up of.
