Brussels Flower Carpet 2019


For only one weekend every two years, Belgian begonia cultivators decorate the Market Place with a beautiful flower carpet using nearly one million flowers and measuring a massive 77 by 24 metres. The famous carpet of flowers is laid right in the centre of the Grand Place and, for a small charge paid locally, can be admired best from the balcony of the City Hall, which is open to the public for the occasion.

There’s much more to Brussels, including historic buildings, grand squares and excellent food. We also include a full day visit to Bruges - a beautiful city known as the ‘Venice of the North’ and famed for it’s pretty canals and medieval architecture. Finally, we visit Ostend so you can enjoy the beaches and multitude of restaurants of this popular Belgian seaside resort.

Enjoy your breakfast before joining our return transfers into Brussels for a second day at leisure in the city. Alternatively you could join fabulous optional full day excursion to Bruges. This fairy-tale medieval town is utterly delightful and is not to be missed! Its circling canals and colourful buildings have given it the name ‘the little Venice of the North’.

Why not try the wonderful fresh mussels and chips (moules frites) one of the local specialities before we rejoin our coach and continue our journey back to the U.K. En-route to the port, time-permitting, we will make a short visit to a hypermarket or a wine/beer warehouse.
