A school trip to the beautiful medieval city of Bruges offers lots of exciting opportunities for your students!

The historic centre of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you’ll see why when you visit! There are many enchanting medieval buildings, including the famous 13th century belfry, as well as plenty of opportunities to enjoy the chocolate, waffles and chips that Belgium is famous for - especially if any of your students are studying food technology!

And you mustn't miss the chance to take a boat cruise along the city's famous canal network - it really is the best way to see Bruges!

Need help?

I love inspiring curiosity in schools searching for the perfect trip to a destination I have first-hand experience in visiting. I love to learn what their travel plans are, the purpose for their trip and how this links back to the curriculum so that I can prepare an entirely tailored trip as if I were visiting myself. – Tom Moorhouse Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Paris was a wonderful destination, particularly for older students. The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and there were loads of things to do and amazing sites to see. It was not too big or overwhelming as I thought it may be and felt manageable. — Westminster Academy , January 2019
