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!
