The journey to Brugge was only one and a half hours. We headed to the motorhome stopover that is situated just outside of the town.  There are two car parks on each side of the road.  We turned into the one on the right which is next to the small marina and coach park.


Once we set up and had a cup of tea we went to take a look at the park the other side of the road. Although the parking spots were a lot larger and the area more spacious it was nearer a busy road and flyover so there was quite a bit of road noise.  Saying that being next to the coach park had Its disadvantages as early in the morning it was noisy with the coaches on the move.

The parking is not particularly cheap at 22.50 euros a night with 50 cents each for water and emptying waste. The cost is a little better at 15 euros out of season but it is worth it as it’s so near to the town. You couldn’t get much nearer so would definitely recommend it.

Brugge is a beautiful and charming medieval town in Belgium, filled with incredible history and beautiful scenery.  The entire town is like a museum with beautiful old medieval buildings, squares, parks, churches, a cathedral, and ornate houses lining intricate canals.

We had visited Brugge years ago on a coach day trip but didn’t really see much of it as it was so cold and spent most of the time in a bar.

The Canal Boat tours are good value at (7.50 euros) an excellent way to see Brugges’ historical buildings, the boat guide pointing out the various history.  The carriage rides are another good way to see the centre and narrow side streets but a lot more expensive if less than four people are sharing (39 euros)

Good comfortable walking shoes are a must, as the cobbles roads/pavements can be tiring to walk on.
