Rain Sun Cobbles, Belgium

Belgium / Bruges / Brussels / Ghent | November 13, 2015

Synonymous with Brussels is the truly astonishing Grand Place, it is quite literally breathtaking, one of Europe’s most spectacular architectural triumphs, if not one of the most famous. Our accommodation was at the wonderful 4* family run Leopold Hotel, just a short 15-20 minute walk through the picturesque Brussels park  from the Central rail station.

Four days in Belguim

Belgium / Bruges / Brussels / Eurostar / Ghent | October 1, 2015

Not many jobs will pay you to go on holiday and stay in some of the nicest hotels Europe has to offer. But that’s exactly what was asked of me in my third week of working for Railbookers. My adventure started on a morning Eurostar from London St Pancras International to Lille in northern France.

Bruges vs Ghent

Belgium / Bruges / Ghent | June 20, 2014

Last time I went to Bruges was from college so my memory of the place was quite hazy to say the least. In fact, a distant memory would be more accurate. So I was very excited to be going there again. This time, however, we were also combining it with a day in Ghent. I am not one for an early start so I wasn’t too pleased with the Eurostar leaving at 8:04 from St Pancras but at least I didn’t need to be there two hours before departure like I would have had to for a flight.

Destination Belgium

Belgium / Bruges / Brussels / Ghent | June 16, 2014

The Eurostar departed promptly from London St Pancras at 08.04 am. We raced through France, briefly stopping in Lille before arriving in Brussels at 11.05. After changing trains we had a short wait before we were on our way to Bruges. The sun shining gloriously made for a striking journey as we cruised through the Belgian countryside.

Discovering Ghent

Belgium / Brussels / Ghent | September 19, 2013

The 08:52 Eurostar leaves St Pancras, Brussels bound, on time and full of an eclectic mixture of suited businessmen and excited international tourists. Although I am a tourist, it will not be my first visit to Belgium’s capital and so with dreams of the familiar crunch of sugared waffles – so close I can almost smell them! – I drift off as the train glides through the rainy English countryside before dipping under the channel, escorting us to the continent.

Adoration Of The Mystic Ghent

Belgium / Ghent | August 12, 2011

Belgium. It is officially time to rethink your preconceptions about the unofficial Capital of Europe. Brussels, especially at weekends, is proving it has a lot more to offer than suits and European politics with architectural wonders from the Medieval to Art Deco, some fine museums, and some exceptional recreational drinking in either traditional beer houses or contemporary bars. But it’s the less renowned alternative city of Ghent that is charging ahead in the reshuffle.

Hotel of the Week - Marriott Ghent

Belgium / Ghent | October 25, 2009

Don’t bother with Bruges, get to Ghent…Not only one of my favorite cities, but also a firm top five in my hotel list – great location on the banks of the Lei (it is a river not a canal if you don’t want to upset the locals), right in the heart of Ghent.
