      YOUR ITINERARY
     

   

SUNDAY: After joining your holiday coach, we make our way to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais. We then continue via the auto-routes of France and Belgium to our resort hotel in Ostend. We have a welcome drink on arrival and porterage is included.

MONDAY - WEDNESDAY: At leisure in Ostend with TWO INCLUDED excursions.


Ostend has been the ‘Queen of the Belgian Coast’ since its 19th-century heyday when it was a royal holiday spot and prestigious European watering hole. There are plenty of reasons that still remain to justify a visit to Ostend; great sandy beaches, a casino, racetrack, art museums, spa and good shopping opportunities.

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS

Historic Ghent:

After breakfast today we have an included excursion visiting Ghent, the historic, medieval city that is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular short break destinations. Ghent, the capital of East Flanders, which over the years has been given several names: historic heart of Flanders, a city of all times is one of the most beautiful, historic cities in Europe. The city combines an impressive past with a vivid present. The historic heart of the city offers a lot of places of interest and from St Michael’s Bridge there is a wonderful view over the skyline of Ghent with the three impressive towers of St Nicholas’ Church, the Belfry, with its bell tower, and St Bavo’s Cathedral, with the world famous painting “The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb” by Jan van Eyck.

Blankenberge:
Blankenberge began life as a fishing village, but with a beautiful golden coastline, it’s no surprise that it has developed into one of Belgium’s most stylish seaside resorts. The promenade is perfect for strolling and stretches for miles with golden sands on one side and the temptation of unique boutique shopping, cafés and restaurants on the other. The old town hall dates back to 1679 and is surrounded by many historic old buildings.

LAST DAY: After breakfast, we travel back through Belgium and France to Calais for our return to England.
