Highlights

Ghent must be Belgium's best kept secret. This quirky city marries a medieval history with an industrial edge to create a truly unique destination that's just three hours from London. From the historic quarter to the flower market, with artisanal coffee and antique stalls in between, a day on foot is a day well spent in this unusual city. Visit Ghent's Museum of Contemporary Art (SMAK) to see works from Belgium's best-known modern artists as well as names you'll know like Christo, Warhol and Hockney. The Design Museum boasts furnishings from the Renaissance to the psychedelic 70s and St Baaf's Cathedral is home to one of the world's earliest known oil paintings - The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by Jan Van Eyck.
