My thanks in anticipation of any help.
Planning to stay in Arras region in a Gite for a week in September. We spent a day in that area a couple of years ago as tourists although my husband had been many times on business and realised we'd like to stay longer in the future. So booked it.
Now looking at a "taster" of Belgium while we are there to see where we would like to stay and see more for future trips.
Been before, but only driven through on the way to France, never stopped, how bad are we?
We will enjoy the memorial sites in France but we really enjoy art, architecture and nice places to eat.
We can get a" free" night on points at an hotel in Ghent. Your advice is needed on the driving times I have googled as we intend to drive from Arras to Bruges, then stay in Ghent, then go to Brussels before driving back to Arras.
I have found:
Arras - Bruges 1hr 30
Bruges - Ghent 45 mins
Ghent - Brussels 45 mins
Brussels - Arras 1.45 mins
My hubby drives like a local, no worries there!
Realise that our 2 day trip from France will only be a taster so we can plan a future trip but are these driving times realistic before we book the Ghent hotel?
Sincere thanks for any input
