"We had a lovely relaxing time on our break to Bruges. The Christmas market was a sight to behold and Bruges is such a beautiful city." Mrs Brown, Durham
The main Christmas market takes up the entire Grote Markt, sitting beneath the beautiful Belfry. An array of traditional Christmas songs serenade you through speakers as you pass by beautiful market stalls. Home to some of the best chocolate in the world, it would be rude not to try it while you’re there. The noise of horse and cart on cobbled grounds will become more common to your ears than a car engine, and watching, with a hot glühwein between your gloves, the festive lights illuminate the medieval architecture fills even the biggest Scrooge with the Christmas spirit.
Bruges travel guide
Our Dover ferry crossings are the perfect way to reach the continent if travelling from the South or Midlands. The short sailings range from 90 minutes to 2 hours and have a range of facilities onboard to keep you entertained. Our bars and eateries ensure you can relax and unwind while we transport you to the continent, plus with an onboard shop, children’s play area and perks like a Premium Lounge, you can enjoy the pleasure of ferry travel. From our French ports it’s 90 minutes or less to Bruges by car.
If you’re travelling from the north or Scotland, opt for our overnight Newcastle-Amsterdam crossing. You can choose whether you’d like to travel by car, with Bruges just 3 hours from our Dutch port, or travel on foot, taking the included coach to the city centre, and get the 3 hour train from Amsterdam’s Centraal Station (which you will need to book separately). While onboard, take advantage of our 4 restaurants and 4 bars, as well as our casino, cinema, onboard shop and children’s play area.
There are 2 hotels in the city centre for you to choose from, opting for either 3 or 4 star. Martins Hotel is a stone’s throw from the Belfry. The 3 star hotel appears typically Flemish from the outside, but is adorned with a modern interior. However, if you’ve a preference for a more classical design, there’s the 4 star Martine Relais Hotel. Situated directly on the canal, the views are stunning, and you’re only 10 minutes from the Belfry. A delicious buffet breakfast is included at both hotels.
