Got back yesterday from a very enjoyable short break to Bruges. Now that the Eurostar leaves from St Pancras it's easy to get there from St Albans. The weather was great, didn't need the coat or umbrella packed just in case. Bruges is big enough to have interesting sights and museums but small enough that every thing is in walking distance. The cities architecture is interesting and charming. We went on a boat on the canal that encircles the city (Venice of the North). It takes half an hour and worth the €5.
