This deal is based on 2 adults flying out to Brussels from Manchester on Thursday 23rd February returning Tuesday 28th February.

There are similar flight prices throughout the month of February and January if you can't do these dates.

Firstly you will land into Brussels Charleroi which is an hour south of Brussels. The shuttle bus will take you to the train station from here.

You will be staying in the 3 star Hotel Belvue which is located just a 15 minute walk into the heart of the city. The hotel has good reviews on TripAdvisor with a score of 4/5.

After spending 2 days in Brussels, the Sunday morning you will hop the train an hour north to the beautiful city of Bruges.

You will be staying in the Ibis budget Brugge Centrum. The hotel is basic but clean and only a 15 minute walk to the city centre. It again has good reviews on TripAdvisor with an average score of 4/5.

Both Brussels and Bruges are beautiful cities, if you can pop to Ghent for the day too, it's well worth a visit.

Once you've finished up in Bruges catch the bus straight back to Brussels Charleroi airport.

Don't forget in major European cities there is city tax to pay, they will usually take this upon arrival.

This deal only includes hand luggage however you're entitled to a 10kg cabin bag and a personal hand bag. If you pack wisely you shouldn't have any trouble doing this trip. If you wanted to check luggage in it'll cost £28 extra each.

Looks like a great deal. You may want to change the day in your description to Thursday.

Sounds like a great deal! Shame it's only from Manchester though - bit of a drive for us Southerners.


The only city more boring than Bruges is Brussels, only appealing to fans of municipal buildings. Amsterdam is only up the road, go there!

Good price op, heat, dates for me are not great though, I tried Fri-Mon and flights are only £5 more pp which is okay, however both hotels seem to be sold out for fri-mon.

instead of driving to Manchester just drive to Bruges . It only takes about an hour and a half off the ferry from Calais and it is basically one straight road.

If you're in the south (or anywhere south of Birmingham) I would recommend to use the Eurotunnel as it will come out a fair bit cheaper. You can get trains to Bruges (through Brussels) for £35 at the cheapest I think (or at least thats what I did in June) and your saving the train cost internally as well as quite expensive transfers everywhere.

Brugges is beautiful but tiny, you could do the whole city in a day or two
