It's not just about the shopping, the atmosphere is lovely and lots of markets are in cities that are wonderful to visit anyway. We love Bruges so that's where we're going. And of course there's the chocolateAlways fancied a Christmas market trip, not used the van a lot this year and still pretty new to it really. The internet always shows excellent pictures of the European Christmas time, is it worth the trip, is it best for ferries from Dover, are the ferries pretty reliable
Is the shopping good
Its a 10 minute bus ride. The bus stop is a short walk from the campsite and it takes you right into the main market square and there is a garage on the corner of the road where you can buy 9 tickets for the price of 8 or something like that. The site is very helpful with information, they even have a printed instruction poster on the wall that you can photograph with you phone and take the info with you!Just seen this post we like the idea of going to a Xmas market for the weekend how far is the campsite from the market
Camping Memling is about a 30 - 40 minute walk away from the market.Just seen this post we like the idea of going to a Xmas market for the weekend how far is the campsite from the market
Yup, you've got me there.But not as much chocolate as Bruges
But you can sit in the main square drinking hot chocolate or glugweinYup, you've got me there.
Love Bruges but never bought chocolate there, how sad is that.
Bruges for us is hot sunny day, sat in the main square eating good food and people watching, going there in the winter does not appeal, hence might as well save a load of cash and go to Manchester.
