Ferry to Calais and on to our hotel in Belgium, stopping en-route in picturesque Lille for dinner (not included).

Day 2 – Valley of de Bocq Train & Namur

You will start the day with a lovely train ride along the old line of the Valley of de Bocq. The train cuts a path through tunnels and over viaducts, with plenty of quaint countryside to admire.

After disembarking, you'll make your way to Namur, nestled at the confluence of the Meuse and Sambre rivers. This pretty medieval city is overlooked by a sprawling hilltop citadel, below which stands a picturesque old town and cobblestone lanes dotted with cafés, restaurants and shops.

Later, you have the opportunity to enjoy dinner in a restaurant of the Just Go!'s choice (not included) before the coach takes us back to the hotel.          

Day 3 – Three Valleys Train & Brussels

This morning you'll head to Mariembourg where we step back in time and experience first-hand how the Ardenne’s steam-powered past is inextricably linked to its landscape with a journey aboard the historic Three Valleys steam train.

On arrival in Treignes, you rejoin the coach and head to Brussels. Belgium’s capital city has plenty to offer including the beautiful cobbled central square, Grand-Place, lined with exquisite buildings. Brussels is also well known for its food and drink, especially waffles, chocolate, French fries and numerous types of beers, available in the many bars and eateries! 

Day 4

Travel back to Calais for your return ferry home, stopping en-route in the atmospheric Belgian city of Ypres.
