Belgium is the land of chocolate and beautiful lacework. It is also home to breweries of different sizes, producing a choice of over 800 beers of all strengths and a wide range of flavours. Flemish cooking is known the world over and we have Belgium to thank for the invention of the waffle. (Which means they can be forgiven for introducing the Brussels sprout to English dinner plates.) Steeped in history and heritage, Belgium has the oldest free city in Europe and the continent’s oldest shopping arcades, the Galleries St Hubert in Brussels (founded in 1847). Not surprisingly, as Belgium is so easy to reach from the UK, it is a popular destination for short breaks, as well as a starting point for longer European tours. Did you know that in Belgium, natives speak both French and Dutch?
