Bruges

Bruges (Brugge) is a small city full of character that is worth a visit. It is so close to London I was able to take a day trip! I booked the tour through internationalfriends.com. Here are some dont miss attractions if you decide to check out Bruges.

The Canals 

The canals run throughout the city. When you first arrive take a canal boat ride and get some great views the canal side restaurants, shops, churches and homes.

This is an old convent and is beautiful. Take a picnic and enjoy the peaceful scenery!

 Church of our Lady 

Belfry (bell tower)

Saint Saviour’s Cathedral

These 3 spires dominate the Bruges skyline. The Belfry is the symbol of Bruges’ independence and has been for centuries. Take the time to climb up its stairs. When you finally get to the top you will have an awesome panorama view of the city.
