Belgium may be one of Europe’s smaller countries, but when it comes to art, history, culture and good food, it punches well above its weight. Chocoholics should head to Bruges, where the pretty cobbled streets are dotted with hundreds of boutiques dedicated to selling the sweet stuff. Capital city Brussels, home to some of the Continent’s finest galleries and buildings, never fails to disappoint. Or maybe you could head to Liege, Ghent or Arlon – three of Europe’s most underrated cities. Best of all, Belgium is under two hours away from London by high speed rail. What could be simpler?
