    Hi all

    We are going to Brugges for the christmas markets in December.now Sue and me are quite happy to use the aire just down from the main station as we have many times in the past but we are taking daughter and grandson who are not keen (might get attacked or something) so we need a site reasonably close on public transport route or at a push will take the toad (36 foot RV) any help would be much appreciated

    Cheers

    What a great idea, think I might have words with SWMBO to suggest we go there - the aire looks quite conveniently positioned on google maps. does it have facilities?

    The aire at Brugge has E.H.U. included in the price of €15 for 24 hours.
    I am told there is a ticket controlled barrier system in operation, payment by credit card. If you stay over your 24 hour period, no matter how long, you are charged for another 24 hours on exit.
    Camping Memling is a better option in my opinion.

    Pete, I forgot to mention that you must remember to stand on the correct side of the road, otherwise the bus to town will pass you by, going in the other direction, which happened to us. :Blush::Blush::Rofl1:
    However, we jumped on the other one, went in the opposite direction, and came back past the stop we got on at, ie, a wee mystery tour, at the lady driver's insistence I might add.
    :Rofl1:
    Brian is right about Memling being the better option. For us it's a point of principle, as the Aire is a rip off, especially in peak season.
    I may be wrong Pete, but there might be a length restriction at Memling. I found it a little tight in the Hymer tag. Some folks have wild camped outside on the road, under the trees, and there was an RV outside when we were there. The Aire may be your best option after all, due to length.

    Best regards,

    Jock.
