Ostend is known as the “city by the sea” and features over five miles of sandy beaches flanked by a lovely promenade offering many shops, bars and restaurants. Our excursions take us to Brussels, known as a mecca of style, art and design and to Bruges, a beautiful city with endearing medieval surroundings.
Day One - We head to Hull for the overnight ferry to the Continent. Dinner and breakfast are included on the ferry and accommodation is provided in twin inside low-berth cabins. (Sole occupancy cabins available for a supplement).
Day two - After a good night’s sleep, we make our way to our hotel in Ostend, the Hotel Ostend which will be our base for the next three nights. There will be plenty of free time in the afternoon for you to explore the local area.
Day three - We travel to Brussels which is quickly gaining a reputation as one of Europe’s must-see destinations, with its small town charm, trendy bars and restaurants, fabulous food, fantastic shopping and numerous museums. Attractions include the Cathedral of Saints Michael and Gudula, the gothic style Town Hall and the Grand Palace offering a unique mix of beautiful 17th century architecture and modern social life.
Day four - A free day to explore Ostend. This bustling seaside resort offers an abundance of shops, cafes and restaurants. Attractions include the City Museum, Royal Galleries and the church St. Petrus and Paulus built in 1907.
Day five - We begin the day with an excursion to Bruges. If you set out to design a fairy-tale medieval town, it would be hard to improve on this fine tourist spot. Picturesque cobbled lanes and dreamy canals link photogenic market squares lined with soaring towers, historic churches and old whitewashed almshouses. After our time in Bruges we head for the overnight ferry sailing to Hull. Dinner and breakfast are included on the ferry and accommodation is provided in twin inside low-berth cabins.
Day six - After breakfast on the ferry, we head back up to Scotland. When you get off the coach, your car will be waiting to take you back home, free of charge – all part of the Eclipse Door to Door Service.
