Ghent Holiday Reviews

Ghent Waterfront, Ghent, Belgium

The ancient capital of Flanders, historic Ghent has magnificent medieval architecture in abundance. Top sights here include the Gravensteen Castle, Saint Bavo Cathedral and a network of very pretty canals. The UNESCO-listed béguinages are typically Flemish, and make the city’s old town even more picturesque; take a stroll, enjoy a canal boat ride, or see the city from up high at the Cathedral or the Belfry.

Easily accessible from London, our Eurostar Breaks to Ghent make travel here very simple indeed – with an easy journey via Brussels, you could find yourself in one of our Ghent hotels in no time at all!

  • The Ghent Festival, held annually over ten days in early summer, is an incredibly popular Music and Theatre Festival and a must-visit – it’s attended by over 1 million people every year
  • The flower capital of Belgium, Ghent has several picture-perfect parks and gardens – be sure to spend some time exploring them
  • A great choice for a cultural city break, Ghent is the birthplace of Jan van Eyck, and home to the Museum voor Schone Kunsten (the Museum of Fine Arts) and Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (City Museum for Contemporary Art) – both worthy of a visit when staying in the city.
A fantastic choice for a short break in Belgium, check out our range of Ghent hotels in the list below…
