How Far from?
Bruges is a popular weekend destination for many, its medieval cobbled roads, winding canals and lanes being a draw for many a romantic getaway. In fact over 3 million visitors come to Bruges each year.

To bask in medieval and gothic architecture, the Markt in the city centre has both Gothic and Renaissance buildings, including the Belfort (Belfry) which was built in the 13th century, and has panoramic views from the top.

Burg square is home to the Basilica of the Holy Blood, so called because it is home to a phial of what is supposedly Christ’s blood. The Church of Our Lady is also of interest as it contains many works of art, including the ‘Madonna with Child’ by Michelangelo.

More art can be found in the Groeninge Museum on Dijver Street. Focusing mainly on Dutch and Belgian art, it is housed within the former Palace of the Lords of Gruuthuse, a building that is worthy of inspection itself.

Chocolate lovers will enjoy the Choco Story Museum, where visitors can learn about the history of the sweet treat.
