Brussels City Breaks
The city of Brussels has become best known as the 'capital of Europe', but behind the modern political façade lies a beautiful Medieval city with a charm and distinct character of its own. Ideal for short breaks, Brussels' many attractions can be reached in less than two hours from London by Eurostar.
After a troubled beginning to the 20th century, Brussels has risen from the ashes of World War II to become a new-age political centre, thanks in no small part to its location in the centre of Western Europe. Today the city is still a testament to its history, as many of the medieval streets, lively squares and beautiful buildings have remained intact. Brussels provides a fascinating meeting point between the last millennium and modern day Europe. It is also famous for its food, with hundreds of restaurants and cafés.
Reaching Brussels from St Pancras International in London could not be easier - it is just one hour and fifty one minutes by Eurostar. Travelling at up to 186mph (299km/h), Eurostar speeds through the Kent countryside before travelling through the 31.4 mile (50.5km) long Channel Tunnel in Kent and emerging in Coquelles in northern France. From here the train travels to Lille before heading across the border into Belgium and arriving into Brussels Midi. For your Rail & Stay Brussels city break, you have the option of choosing a morning or afternoon Eurostar service.
