How would I describe Ghent? It is the third largest city in Belgium, after Brussells and Antwerp. It is a busy port and a University city. Along with its 70,000 students, it is three times the size of Bruges. Like Bruges, it is a medieval city, but its historic centre is not as compact as Bruges, but spread through a much larger area. Bruges is …

Things are winding down as we make our way steadily back to Blighty. Our thoughts now are more on the things we need to do in London before jumping on a plane, the people we want to see and of course the people we are going to see. And the …
... Princess Diana Memorial Trail through the park and saw a lot of pretty birds. As we got closer to Big Ben we stopped and had a beer at Ales & Pies.
We ended up leaving a bit late only to realize that the metro would take much longer than anticipated. I was on edge. We hustled like nobody's business through King's Cross and we were going to make it just in time... until we got to security. For some god only knows reason my bag ...

If you are a food lover, don't miss the steamed mussels. It costs approximately 18-24 euros per person, and it's worth trying. And if you take a stroll along the street, it's really hard to miss the warm and sweet smell of waffles. Anyway, it was ...
... abbey, and a 17th-century monastery. The exhibits were fairly interesting, and it gives you a chronological history of the development of the city.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCamping Blaarmeersen Ghent
The campsite is well situated within cycling distance of the historic centre of Ghent., so it is easy to cycle in and out. It is also in a Sports zone with a 5km loop track which you can walk, jog or cycle around. Also, adjacent the campsite is a recreation area with its own beach, grassy area and plenty of entertainment for kids. The shower facilities were ok - but our shower block had no hot water or the three days we were there, which wasn't a problem because the weather was so hot. There is a shop on site and the Taff are helpful. You can also get a bus to the town centre from the campsite
