“Famous Citizens” guided walk by Sarah Strange


Brussels has always been a meeting point of celebrities from all walks of life and myriad nationalities. Many foreign visitors have left their mark on local and world history, but there are many “locals” who deserve to be put in the limelight. In this tour, the term “citizen” is used loosely and encompasses those who have passed through as well as lived in Brussels and by extension in what is now Belgium.

Chris has selected a circuit of 29 kms with appropriate refreshment stops along the way but must leave us at 1pm to go to another event.  We will finish up at the fascinating flea market so bring plenty of pennies with you.( WeI can deliver anything too bulky to carry on bikes on the way back.)
