A short break in Bruges

Monday 14 December we took the Eurostar from Kings Cross to Bruges, changing in Brussels. I'd heard about Bruges from a number of people so it was good to finally see what the fuss was about!

Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce

Whilst in Bruges we stayed at Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce, a lovely little hotel that happened to feature in the film 'In Bruges' (not that I'd watch it).

Place De Bruges

Located at the centre of town, Place De Bruges, had been taken over by an ice skating rink.

The streets of Bruges, being Belgian, were lined with lovely chocolate shops... some of which gave away a free sample or two.

Tuesday 15 December we had dinner at Kok au Vin.

Minnewater Lake

Wednesday 16 December, our last day. We went for a walk around Minnewater Lake, known as The Lake of Love.

Paid a visit to a special exhibition at Sint-Janshospitaal (Old Saint John’s Hospital).

We had afternoon tea at Hotel Orangerie.
