Wynstones School at the Menin Gate

The “Grand Place” of each picture-perfect city is the ideal starting point for you to explore numerous Flemish cities and soak up the ambience whilst enjoying the local café culture.

In Flanders and Brussels we recommend:

  • Visiting a brewery for a tour and tasting in Bruges
  • A canal boat trip in Bruges or Ghent
  • Shopping and diamond hunting in Antwerp
  • Paying your respects at the Menin Gate, Ypres
  • Exploring the Musical Instrument Museum in Brussels with a self-guided tour
