4 days

Brussels

Duration: 4 days

Visit this modern capital for a fun and engaging weekend away. A favourite of law societies due to the presence of the European Parliament, experience a quintessentially ‘European’ city and all it has to offer. With historic sites and regal 19th century mansions, to modern art galleries and youthful bars and attractions, the city is multicultural to its roots. 

When the sun is shining, this lesser known destination offers one of the best days out in Europe. The marvel of the Grand Place is worth a picture or ten, and the Atomium is one of the most iconic designs of the World Expo series. Check out Belgium’s own Buckingham at the Royal Palace of Brussels or, if you want to see all of Europe in one, the Mini-Europe park showcases the best landmarks in a manageable size. To top it all off, the traditional foods of Waffles and Frites are both delicious and cultural, so you can stuff yourself full in the name of immersing yourself in the Belgian lifestyle. This gem of a city flies under the radar but is not to be missed!
