Christmas markets

Have you ever wondered if the European Christmas markets in your town or city are anything like the markets of Bruges, Lille, Arras, Ypres, Lens or Amiens?

Does your market have the picturesque qualities of Lille, the canals and cobbled streets of Bruges, the history of Ypres, the architecture of Arras coupled with wonderful restaurants and of course the skating rinks where we prove to ourselves that Torvill and Dean were truly talented and we have wet bottoms for the rest of the evening. Well, now is your chance to find out, why not join us on one of our Christmas market tours?
