Bruges by Rail
Open up a chocolate box of tempting experiences with a visit to Bruges. Belgium’s romantic picture postcard historic city of brick gabled houses with interlocking canals. Sip a refreshing Belgian beer amongst its medieval monuments or opt for a complete brewery experience - the choice is yours.
The exceptionally preserved historic centre of Bruges is brimming with character, where the wonderful world of chocolate awaits. You can not wander through its cobbled streets without reaching for the camera, for it’s one of the most picture perfect city scenes to be found within Europe - where tranquil canals, old brick houses and magnificent churches intertwine.
‘When in Rome...’, as the saying goes; be sure to treat yourself at the chocolate shops of Bruges and its many lace shops too, where the lace is handcrafted locally. Bruges is also synonymous with the art of brewing; why not sample the delights of the 16th century De Halve Maan Brewery, for an authentic brewery experience.
Other highlights include the Choco-Story Museum, Burg Square & Old Registry of Civil Liberties as well as the delightful canal cruise.

196 of us went to perform as part of the Disney Performing Arts programme and they made it a fantastic experience. We had all sorts of obstacles thrown at us with snow and Eurostar strikes but nothing was too much trouble. 'No train to Disneyland???', 'no problem', coaches were organised to take us the rest of the way. Becky kept in touch the whole time checking we were taken care of. I highly recommend South Quay Travel, we have memories to last a lifetime.
I recently took my group on a wonderful tour of India's 'Golden Triangle' and then on up to Shimla in the Himalayas, arranged for us by South Quay Leisure and Travel. Everything had been taken care of from the moment we arrived. The transport, the transfers, the hotels, the guides, the porters, the admissions to all the wonderful places we visited, plus much much more besides. We had the experience of a lifetime and the company had left no stone unturned in ensuring the content and comfort of our tour.
Thank you so much for a fantastic Numeracy trip to Disneyland Paris. The experience was excellent for all our pupils. They all enjoyed themselves enormously. We will certainly be booking again with South Quay Travel.
We are just back from Lyon, and I wanted to say the organisation from your end was excellent, we both had a wonderful weekend.
South Quay Travel have organised a number of trips away for us. Disneyland Paris being a highlight for us this year, they looked at many options to get this within a price range I knew our group would pay, fantastic value for money. Well done guys.
A superb trip. The hotel was great both in location, quality of facilities and the meals provided. The pacific anchorages cruise was the best for many on a luxury catamaran yacht that went the 12 miles or so out in to the Pacific Ocean to make sure we got to see every ship! Well done with all the plans and arrangements for this trip which meant for all of us it was a trip of a lifetime in every sense.
