Brugge deserves more than 2 days if the weather is good. Excellent but expensive aire by the main railway station within an easy walk to the delightful town.

Frites and Kipstik -- all you need to know.

Gravelines , every time for me, aire in Bruges as as been said near the coach station 21 euros but all amenities and nice walk to the centre through the park, tobacco again as as been said but any tabac has the same prices, the price is on the pack and all charge the stated price, but you do get odd offers at the warehouses

i`m a newbie
We were in Brugges a few days back and visited a dolphinarium @ Boudewijn seapark which was great and they let us stay overnight in the carpark.
Baccy is £52 for 10 packs golden virginia in Ostend up main shopping street , road to right just before you reach the beach front, parking is near the coach park as you come in near famous old ship in mariner there but be early for a space. Market days are Mon, Thurs and sat good too.
We stayed at a full on camp site in Nieuwpoort about 25 mins west of there which was good but not cheap to call back to Ostend for market day today though there are a couple of aires along coast a few miles out 5 + 10 euros a night ,then to here an aire at east of Dunkirk, got dogs sorted local vets 45 euros for the 2, by maire office ready for ferry back Sunday after a great 6 weeks wandering.

We stayed at Memling last December for the Christmas Market - lovely site. You can get the bus from round the corner for about 1 euro each each way, it takes you right into the town square in the centre of Brugges, if you but a multi ticket from the garage on the corner near the site the bus is cheaper.
