Travel Cheap as Chips in Brussels

There are plenty of cheap thrills to be had in Belgium’s fascinating historic capital, where Art Nouveau façades clamour for attention with brewpubs and multicultural markets.
Markets have existed at Grand Place since the 11th century

Budget Brussels



One of the world’s great urban spaces, the enclosed cobblestone square is only revealed as you enter on foot from one of six narrow side alleys. It’s crammed with 15th- to 18th-century guildhalls that are unashamed exhibitionists. Magically lit at night, it’s alive with classic Belgian cafés and hosts a flower market on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.


This prestigious mega-museum incorporates Brussels’ museum of Old Masters, where the 15th-century Flemish Primitives are well represented, its Modern Art museum, an Art Nouveau museum and the purpose-built Musée Magritte, which holds the world’s largest collection of the Belgian Surrealist’s works (; closed Mon; combination ticket £10).
