Pick‘n’mix Bruges

Celebrating the joy of the mini-break, our new series offers a carefully curated shortlist of the very best a destination has to offer. Choose and book your favourites to build a bespoke trip - done your way

Ne film has done more for a destination than the 2008 black comedy / In Bruges. As crucial a cast member as Colin Farrell, the Belgian city's, medieval canals and lamplit cobbles make even a story about murder seem impossibly beautiful. These cinematic good looks earn Bruges more than its fair share of visitors, but visit in autumn and you'll ind the throngs have thinned. - Stay overnightand the- streets get even emptier - -the daytrippers disappear and are replaced by nocturnal floodlights, which cast an. ethereal glow over the fagades of the city's many soaring towers, whitewashed almshouses and winding lanes made for aimless wandering. A boat trip and a beer have always been an essential part of the Bruges experience, ut this isn't a city completely cast in aspic - it's also home to a hefty share of inventive! restaurants, eclectic flea markets and fun bars.
