Antwerp is a pocket-sized metropolis and Europe's second-largest portBook Now
Located in the heart of Europe, Antwerp is Belgiums second biggest city, with a penchant for vibrant fashion, architecture and shopping. It has also voted one of the top 10 most attractive and enjoyable cities in the world. We highly recommend a visit to this Tall Ships Race Event being held this July in Antwerp.

We have been working behind the scenes with Galloway to be able to offer you an even wider range of UK and Continental Holidays, this enables us to offer you more choice and some exciting NEW destinations. As these Holidays will be offered by both companies, we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.
We depart home area and make our way to Folkestone for our Eurotunnel crossing. We then continue through France and into Belgium to Ostend to purchase lunch. Afterwards we continue to our hotel in Antwerp and arrive mid-afternoon. Upon arrival we enjoy a cup of tea/coffee whilst our luggage is taken to our bedroom. Time will be given to freshen up, we then take you into Antwerp's Old Town where there will be opportunity to obtain a meal in one of the many restaurants and see some of the Tall Ships for the first time. The event will be putting on an Evening Show for all to see. We will arrange a time to pick you up to return you to your hotel.D
After breakfast, again we take you into Antwerp's Old Town by coach, as it is over an hour's walk to Eilandje where the start of the Tall Ships will be docked. The Ships will be docked from Eilandje in the north to the new cruise terminal, Het Steen, in the south. You will need your walking shoes today. This is a free event where we have free access to the ships. There will be so much going on from entertainment, art and craft stands, people dressed in Pirate costume, and so much to see and do. Again, we will arrange a time to pick you up to return you to your hotel.B, D
Today we will take you back into the Old Town to see the parade of the crew. There will be a Sports competition prize-giving ceremony which is open to the public and again there will be free access to the ships. Tonight, will be their closing event. For those who do not wish to go back in town today, once we have dropped off passengers, we will take you on an optional excursion to nearby quirky Ghent. A city where the friendly, welcoming people enjoy the good life. Ghent is the largest city of the Flanders region in Belgium and is stunning. Plenty of places to visit, shop and eat.B, D
We depart our hotel and stop in Lille, France with time at leisure and to obtain lunch. Lille is a city in the northern region of France, in French Flanders. Lille has had an eventful history from the Middle Ages to the French Revolution. Home to 4000 shops, Lille is quite possibly the most perfect place for a shopping venture for those looking for something typically French and it needn't be expensive. Food plays a big part of the city's character, and you can expect hearty fayre based around Flemish dishes in many of their restaurants. Re-join the coach to travel to Calais for our return Eurotunnel crossing.B
