Win a trip to Brussels on Eurostar for a two-night stay with Railbookers

Eurostar with ©RailbookersThis prize draw is now closed.

We have a superb extra prize this month from our friends at Railbookers, a two night city break to Brussels for two inclusive of return Eurostar tickets and two nights hotel accommodation, with breakfast, to be taken before December 2021.

Travel from St Pancras’ beautiful international terminal: arrive a mere 30 minutes before your train leaves, although you might like to enjoy a wander around the shops and admire the refurbished building ahead of your journey. Once you’ve boarded the train, speeding through the English countryside, under the Channel and then on through France to Belgium, where you’ll arrive in Brussels, just over two hours later. That really is a whole lot easier than flying!

Grand Place, BrusselsBrussels brings to mind waffles, moules-frites, chocolate and wonderful beer! In addition to these culinary delights, it’s a top-notch cultural city too. As you wander around look out for cartoon murals, especially those of Hergé’s beloved Tintin. You can find out more at the Belgian Comic Strip Center or visit Bozar, Brussels music, dance, art and architecture centre. Stroll around the Grand-Place, Brussels’ stunning main square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famed for its Gothic town hall and Maison du Roi, where jazz, beer and flowers have their own festivals at different times of the year. The Fashion & Lace Museum celebrates both Belgium’s traditional crafts and modern – day designers. If you’re after bargains and a bustling market, try Jeu de Balle which hosts a year-round flea market in the heart of the Marolles district. And for nightlife of all kinds, try Kolenmarkt for something interesting!
