Lille and Bruges Weekend

Just You Singles Holidays

Lille and Bruges Weekend

Holidays by Rail 4 Days

From £499

Lille and Bruges are peaceful, relaxed and picturesque cities. Narrow streets are lined with atmospheric bars and cafés while Bruges’ traditional gabled houses and lovely canals add substance to the city’s charm. Lille’s range of architectural styles is crowned by the Flemish influence that runs through the streets of its historical quarter, Vieux Lille. Bruges’ canals, bridges and impressive architecture give rise to comparisons with Venice and the comparisons don’t end there, for Bruges has more than its fair share of fascinating tales to tell.

Your Holiday Itinerary

Your Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - UK to Lille

Meet your Tour Manager at London St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet International for your journey to Lille by Eurostar. Get to know your travelling companions over a drink this evening.

Day 2 - Lille 

The French city of Lille boasts some spectacular architecture, much of it Flemish, from the days of Belgian rule. Situated on the Deûle River, Lille is known throughout the country for its magnificent city centre and vibrant culture.

As you explore this fascinating city, be sure to head to Vieux Lille, the historic quarter. Join the locals, who like nothing more than lounging around the fountain in the main square, or spend time wandering around its cobbled streets, which are lined with shops, open-air bars and restaurants.

Perhaps take the opportunity to join our optional three-quarter day excursion to Ghent, one of Belgium’s oldest cities, and medieval Europe’s largest city outside Paris. Sitting on the junction of the Leie and Scheldt Rivers, Ghent was once the seat of the counts of Flanders, who built Het Gravensteen here, a huge castle that is still an imposing presence today. A tour of the city will reward you with marvellous views of elegant medieval architecture, a network of canals and quaint cobbled streets.

This evening enjoy the relaxed pace back in Lille. In the centre of the town you’ll find a fantastic selection of restaurants serving regional, national and international cuisine and there are also many bars serving locally-brewed beers.

Menin Gate at Ypres is the British and commonweatlh memorial to the soldiers that lost their lives in World War I and were never found. Take the opportunity to visit the memorial in the evening. We will be there to witness the poignant Last Post Ceremony which has been performed at the Gate each evening since 1929.

Day 3 - Bruges 

Bruges is the capital city of West Flanders, sometimes referred to as ‘The Venice of the North’. The delightful old centre is a prominent UNESCO World Heritage Site and has an abundance of attractions from traditional gabled houses and majestic churches to charming canals and picturesque market squares.

If you want to pick up a souvenir of your holiday why not shop for lace - Bruges is famous for its production. And of course delicious Belgian chocolates can be found at every turn, why not call into a chocolatier and treat yourself to something delicious. Atmospheric bars line Bruges’ streets - perhaps visit one of the cosy tap-rooms and sample a famous Belgian beer or two. If you’re feeling hungry, chips and mayonnaise is a great local speciality.

This evening gather with your fellow travellers for a farewell dinner.

Day 4 - Lille to UK 

Explore Lille at your own pace this morning before taking the Eurostar service back to your original departure point of either St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet International.

Please note - We want you to get the most from your holiday with us so please be advised that this tour is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
