School Trips to Belgium

Belgium is Europe in a nutshell; a great melting pot of culture and language forming the centre of the European Union. Flanders in the north has great art cities such as Antwerp, Bruges and Gent while the capital Brussels is one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities.

For Politics, Business and Economics students Brussels, as the European capital of politics and business and one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities, Brussels is a great choice. It is home to both the European Union and NATO, as well as a wealth of international trade and finance institutions. Brussels is also a hub for science and innovation with excellent visits such as the Euro Space Centre, one of the largest Planetariums in Europe and the House of Science Liege which covers Physics, Chemistry and Biology. For Food Technology trips a large number of firms use the region as a base for production, processing, packaging and operations and students can visit Concept Chocolaterie and In Bev Breweries to see the production in process.

Finally, the beauty of Brussels is intensified during the Christmas Markets season due to all the beautiful and twinkling festive decorations.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"Belgium has so much to offer, on our doorstep. Amazing Christmas markets in Brussels, Ghent, Leuven, Antwerp and Bruges each December, with chocolates and gifts galore. Battlefields and war graves in Ypres, Waterloo and Passendale for the historian in us and a number of political and business studies visits. It is less than 2 hours from London by train or 1-2 hours by coach from Calais, dependent on your destination. Do make sure to save some room after dinner for a waffle, nowhere do they taste better!"
