Brussels revs up for Formula One Grand Prix

The Belgian Formula One Grand Prix takes place in Brussels at the end of this month, from August 28-30, 2009. I hope some of you managed to make your Eurostar booking earlier as I suggested in my post of June 16th. You would have got return fares from London to Brussels for as little as £50.00 then.

If you didn’t manage to organize your Eurostar trip earlier, you can still secure fares of £59 return if you’re flexible with times and dates. This may be an excuse to stay on in Brussels a little longer and enjoy the Brussels Beer Weekend which runs from September 4-6, in town, at the Grand Place.

Brussels is a great place for a city break. With its amazing baroque architecture and Gothic town hall, the Belgian capital is full of charm and an abundance of pavement cafes, not to mention beer.

    If you’re looking for some great watering holes while in town, may I suggest a handy little guide called “Around Brussels in 80 Beers”? Apologies for the plug, but it sounds like you’ve got an interest in great beer.

    Thanks Joe for advising us of your Brussels Beer Guide and what a great website name.

    Kind regards,
