The fabulous Belgian Capital city of Brussels hosts the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2019. Join us for all the racing action in this wonderful European host city!

In 2019, The Grand Depart of the world’s most famous cycle race - The Tour de France - starts in the fabulous Belgian capital City of Brussels. There’ll be plenty of thrilling racing action to see and hopefully there’ll be a few Britons in the mix, like Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish. It is sure to offer two thrilling days of cycling in a fabulous location surrounded by sightseeing and with numerous bars and restaurants. Maybe enjoy the local speciality dish of Moules-frites (mussels and fries) and a traditional Belgian beer, or two!!

On days two and three, you’ll enjoy breakfast at your hotel and then we will transfer you into the heart of Brussels. Find your favourite spot to watch the racing and relax and enjoy the celebratory, carnival atmosphere created by this huge event.

On Saturday, the first stage of the racing is Brussels - Charleroi - Brussels and on Sunday, the Second stage, Brussels Royal Palace - Brussels Atomium, team time-trial. Both days are sure to offer some incredible cycling action. There’ll also be entertainment on offer and an excellent atmosphere from a country that loves its cycling.
