Getting There

It is a simple journey to Bruges from Hull. I took the overnight Hull to Zeebrugge P&O Ferry and it is a short drive mainland. Alternatively, there is a P&O Ferry Minicruise from Hull that will take you straight to the city of Bruges..


Besides your overnight stay on a P&O Ferry you may look for a place to stay in Bruges, and there is plenty of choice. I found spare beds in places ranging from budget hostels to luxury 15th century hotels, so you should easily find the style of accommodation that suits your trip. Remember that if you bring your car with you on your P&O Ferry crossing, you donít necessarily need to stay in the centre of the city to get around easily.

Food and drink

Traditional Belgium cuisine and international dishes are available throughout the city. I tried out the local favourites such as beef stew, mussels and waffles for the authentic Bruges experience. There are many gastropubs serving the main squares, markets selling fresh produce including locally caught fish, and donít forget to have the traditional Belgian chips with mayonnaise. Beer lovers will be in their element as they sip flavoursome Belgium beers. You will be spoilt for choice for food and drink during the crossing from Hull as P&O Ferries cater for all tastes with the Four Seasons carvery and buffet, bars and more.

Sights and Activities in Bruges

The medieval city of Bruges is a charming area sitting in the middle of a large canal network that boasts breath-taking architecture and picturesque views. There are regular markets where I bought local authentic food and goods, elegant guild houses I explored and impressive monuments waited for me around every corner. Take a canal trip around the city to take in its marvellous looks and charming culture.
