Following in the footsteps of many lauded painters and poets, you’re sure to be inspired by quaint Honfleur. The charming cobbled streets of this historic city are a map of architectural treasures, including St Catherine’s Church – France’s largest timber-built church, while the Vieux Bassin district presents postcard-perfect scenes of colourful houses and a beautiful fishing harbour. In the Netherlands, an abundance of Dutch delights awaits. With a full-day to explore Amsterdam, you can delve deep into one of Europe’s finest capital cities and take your pick of the attractions. Anne Frank House, the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum and particular highlights. To view Amsterdam from a different perspective, take a boat tour of the city’s diverse districts via its iconic waterways. You’ll also have a chance to revel in Rotterdam’s modern marvels. The Netherlands’ futuristic second city boasts many impressive sights, such as the Erasumsbrug Bridge, innovative 1970’s Cube Houses and magnificent Markthal. 

In between Honfleur and Amsterdam, Boudicca also diverts to Belgium and Zeebrugge, gateway to UNESCO-listed Bruges. Opt to take the short journey to Bruges and you’re in for a rewarding day of exploration; the city is home to a unique mix of architecture and some of Belgium’s most sought-after landmarks. The Church of our Lady, the Madonna and Child sculpture, and the unmistakable medieval Belfry are must visit sites. For a memorable finale, you’ll return to Belgian shores before heading home, for an extended stop at Antwerp.  Once you’ve arrived in Belgium’s beautiful second city, you’ll have time to explore at your own pace. While the legendary diamond district is the jewel in Antwerp’s crown, there are plenty of other treasures to uncover here too; the intricate guildhouses of Grote Markt, the mighty Cathedral of our Lady and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts are all highly recommended. In both Bruges and Antwerp, don’t miss the chance to indulge yourself with the sweet, rich flavours of authentic Belgian chocolates, produced by some of the world’s best chocolatiers, too.
