Brugge break for my parents

Hi, we want give my parents a break to Brugge for my dad's 60th, looking around the beginning of October.

Flying from Birmingham to Brussells, found a hotel (Best Western) but lookinfgfor transfers to the hotel, looks quite far in a taxi?

Anybody any ideas or recommendations for Brugge?

    I went to brugge via eurostar in Feb. I would reccomend the public transport system. very reliable and very cheap. Everybody really wants to help you, the ticket office even surrgested that as there was a group of us if we were under 30 we could get a special price.

    Train is under an hour to brugge. if not able to get train I am sure you could get a bus - these are also very cheap.

    e.g 4 Euros for 6 people from Brugge train staion to town.

    Hope this helps

    Brussels airport is a bit of a distance from the city. However there is a fast bus service into the centre of town. From there you would get a train to Brugges.

    Another suggestion, Brussels is actually a very underrated city. There is lots to do there. Why not base yourself in Brussels and do a day trip to Brugges?

    you can get a train from brussels airport to the centre of brussels (i forget which station) and from the same station get a train to Brugges. We have done it several times and its quick, cheap and efficient
