Itinerary

Day 1: Travel via Eurotunnel to spend Christmas in the beautiful city of Bruges. The Academie Hotel is situated on a charming cobbled street, near to one of Bruges’ highlights: The Lake of Love and within walking distance of the Railway station, Market square and shopping area.

Days 2-4: We will visit Chocostory – the Chocolate Museum in Bruges, located in the sixteenth – century “Huis de Crone” building, originally the home of a wine tavern. A quirky museum dedicated to all things chocolate. Learn about the history of chocolate, its cultivation and historical development and some tasting along the way.

Also included is a visit to the Straffe Hendrik Brewery for a tour to find out about the brewing process of this fine Belgian beer. If you can manage the steps, there is a fantastic view over the town from the top, also a tasting is offered in the Courtyard.

A chance to go to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve at the Holy Lady Church, dating back some 800 years, has the second highest brick built tower in the world! A truly stunning church containing famous art work including Michelangelo’s Madonna and child among others.

Day 4: Return to Waterside.
