- On this fantastic four day tour to the Flanders region of Belgium from London you can experience all the things the country is famous for - Battlefields, beer and chocolate! Looking for a little flexibility and spontaneity in your itinerary? Do you have a few days to really get deep into the countryside?
Just across the English Channel lies the ancient land of Flanders. This short tour explores the part of Flanders that is now a province of Belgium.
Since the 14th century, Flanders has been a thriving region of fiercely-independent cities. They share a historical and cultural heritage to which the Grand Squares, magnificent guild houses, awe-inspiring cathedrals and many other monuments bear proud witness of a wealthy and influential past. The numerous smaller squares, cobbled street, churches and beguinages let you feel days gone by with an intimacy all of their own.
In contrast, there are the heart-wrenching battlefields of western Flanders bearing witness to the violent upheaval of the Great War.
There is a lot more to Flemish cities than just architecture and history. You can also spend time looking around a flea market, visiting an art gallery, or just sitting on a cafe terrace watching the world go by and sampling the world famous beer and chocolate!
With a maximum group size of 11 and a university educated guide/driver, you are sure to have a memorable and personal experience.
