Gorgeous cities, poignant wartime history and a surprising abundance of railway heritage, Belgium has many attractions for such a small country - and is heaven for beer connoisseurs!
Springtime is the very best time of the year to visit the bulbfields. This tour features Keukenhof Gardens, the Floralia flower show at a Belgian château, steam adventures on the '3 Valleys Railway' and the historic steam train from Hoorn to Medemblik in North Holland. Not forgetting a day in Amsterdam with canal trip and we also stay in Gouda to coincide with their cheese market!
The Maldegem Steam Centre's festival in 2018 will be themed around World War I, so it seemed fitting to commemorate the centenary of the end of the war with a special one-off tour, featuring a day exploring the poignant battlefields of Ypres and Paschendaele. As well as Maldegem's gala, we also enjoy a private steam charter on Belgium's Puurs-Dendermonde heritage line, a visit to gorgeous Gent to cruise its waterways and we also get a taste of Belgian beer at a local brewery.
