London might think it lies at the heart of Europe, but it is nothing compared to the cultural collision that is Brussels, at the true heart of the European Union. Just a few hours away by coach, Brussels is heaving with fantastic food, sights and experiences with a truer cosmopolitan feel than London's overcrowded bustle.
With French the most common language, there are plenty of other nationalities represented, so you should find it easy to communicate. When you've tried the staggering range of Belgian beers and chocolates, Brussels has a huge range of restaurants for every budget. From sumptuous fine dining or moules et frites in a cafe, to street food that will keep you nourished on your trip, there is usually something worth trying on every corner.
Must-see attractions on any tour are focused around the 17th Century (truly) Grand Place, which is hemmed in by the Town Hall and a great place to watch the world go by. You should also visit the Royal Palace (summer only) and the St Michael and Gudula Cathedral. Cultural types might also want to check out the many museums and gardens, with the Gardens of the Van Buuren Museum neatly combining the two.
Brussels is fast becoming a fun destination for visitors in their twenties, with chic shops on Rue Neuve and Rue des Fripiers, music festivals, and a growing party atmosphere. Fashionistas will have to visit Saint Gery/Dansaert which is the place to be seen and to pick up the latest designer labels. Massively different to London, a trip to Brussels should be on everyone's agenda.
