1. Re: Transportation from LONDON to BRUGGE

The most economical (from 15 GBP), but time-consuming way to travel from London to Brugge is by bus but this would take you maybe 9 or 10 hours. I believe there are direct buses, otherwise it is 8 1/2 to Brussels, and you could get off at Lille and change there. Buses to Brussels leave Victoria Coach Station at 08.15 (arr. Brussels 16.45), 09:30 (arr. 17.31), 14.30 (arr. 22.45) and there's an overnight service leaving at 21.00, arr. 05.30, see or phone (I think) +44-1582-404 511 (or google for National Express phone number).

If you were thinking of driving, there are various ferry options between the UK and Belgium, see the most common is Ramsgate to Ostend (4 hours), but most people here would travel via one of the French ports instead e.g. Dover-Calais (1 hour 10 minutes) - I think this is the service used by the buses. The Seacat service from Dover to Ostend stopped running a few years ago.

In my opinion, the most convenient way to travel is by train, Eurostar to Brussels Gare du Midi (3 hours) and change there for Brugge (+/- 1 hour). Fare will depend on how long in advance you can book, see

Also do not discount travelling by air, especially if you will be staying somewhere in or near London that is handy for an airport. You can often get special prices on British Airways and SN Brussels Airlines, all will depend on departure dates and times, how long you are staying and whether you are returning to London or not.

Remember when looking at timings that there is an hour's time difference between the UK and the continent, UK is one hour behind so you put your watch forward one hour when travelling to France or Belgium and back when travelling from here to the UK.
