VIRTUAL TRIP TO - Liege Christmas Market 
This Friday all aboard at 11 am for travel ON EUROSTAR


The Christmas Markets in Belgium are very popular and offer all kinds of Christmas goodies and the festive season will again be celebrated with colourful Christmas trees. They exude a fantastic atmosphere and offer great shopping opportunities. There are a few notable Belgian Christmas Markets particularly Brussels Winter Wonderland and the Bruges Christmas Market and also a relatively new market in Ypres which is now in its third year.

These Belgian Xmas markets in or near to Brussels benefit from the rapid Eurostar service.

Xmas markets in Belgium have much to offer the visitor in terms of the Belgian culture and being relatively close to the UK is easy to travel to.


The “Village de Noël de Liège” (Christmas Village) has become one of Belgiums' most famous Chrismas Markets in Belgium, with wooden chalets offering gastronomic specialities, handicrafts and souvenirs

LIEGE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE: 29 Nov–30 Dec 2013 Place St Lambert & Place du Marché.

During 4 weeks, 200 hundred wooden chalets will offer various products including gastronomic specialities, handicrafts and souvenirs.

OUTDOOR ICE RINK (29 Nov – 30 Dec 2013) Place de la Cathédrale

Set up in the heart of Liège's huge pedestrianised zone, the ice rink will be surrounded by lots more shopping, eating and drinking opportunities.

  • I went to Exeter today with a friend and in the surrounds of the Cathedral they've set up a Christmas market, all in little wooden sheds. Apparently they did it last year but it was spoilt by the wet weather, they've taken more in this first week than they did in the whole three weeks last year. Lots of lovely lovely things to buy, had I had lots of pennies I would have come back laden.......ah can but dream !!
