Exploring the continent by coach is practical, comfortable and exciting. From discovering vibrant European towns to visiting bustling tourist attractions, travelling by coach allows you to enjoy all of the best bits of your trip, without the stress of arranging your transport!

Whether you’re with a group of friends or taking some time out for yourself, a coach trip is by far the most affordable, convenient and inspiring way to see the sites of Europe. Here are three of Mayday Travel’s top European coach destinations for 2016.

Bruges, Belgium

This beautiful medieval capital city attracts countless tourists every year. With its historic cobbled streets and picturesque canals, it’s a truly unique destination for any traveller. The best thing about taking a coach trip to Bruges is that you don’t have to arrange transport for your daily excursions – meaning that you can see the best of this beautiful city with ease.

Whether you want to shop, dine, see the sites or soak up the culture, Bruges has something to offer for everyone. There are plenty of art galleries, and no visit to Bruges would be complete without visits to the Basilica of the Holy Blood, the Church of Our Lady, or St Salvator’s Cathedral. At the end of a busy day, you can kick back and relax for a bite to eat in the Markt.

Ostend, Belgium

With its incredible coastal backdrop and unique architecture, Ostend is another must-see site in Belgium. With bustling beaches and festivals in the summer months, and magical Christmas markets during the winter, this wonderful city is alive with culture all year round. Coach trips to Ostend allow you to experience the highlights of the city, while giving you plenty of time to wander around its narrow streets and absorb the vibrant culture.

For those with an interest in history, Ostend has some excellent museums, and the Mercator is a definite favourite among tourists. If you enjoy architecture and religious history, then the stunning late-19th-century St Petrus and Paulus Church is another popular option. Whatever your interests are, visiting Ostend is a truly unforgettable experience.

Cité Europe, France

If you’re more interested in shopping, then taking a coach trip to Cité Europe is a fantastic experience. With 147 retail outlets and 20 restaurants from all over Europe, you will have the chance to purchase clothes, gifts, accessories and other items that aren’t available in the UK, and finish off your leisurely day with a delicious meal. The best thing is that you don’t have to worry about transporting your new purchases home – there’s plenty of room for them on the coach!
