We’re been squirrelling away with our friends at Wallonia.Be and Visit Mons, and have finalised the booking details for our Mons getaway next May!


Friday 19th May

Arrive in Mons and settle in at Martin’s Dream Hotel, a converted chapel. Then it’s off to the Grand Place for revelry and the strategic lining of stomachs with cheese cubes covered in celery salt (You’ll learn!)


Saturday 20th May

Make a tour of strategic points at your leisure. You’ll find a trustee/guide at each one to talk you through the story of what you’re looking at! Stops will include the special CWGC site at St. Symphorien and the famed bridge at Nimy.

We’ll have a group dinner, with our hosts at Visit Mons, and then it is possible that we may adjourn for more 

sparkling water at a different venue on the Grand Place*. (*This will definitely happen, the water may contain alcohol)


Sunday 21st May

In the morning, it’s off to the Mons Memorial Museum. 

Our weekend will finish with an outdoor party complete with street food and drinks at a historic venue.


Optional Add-on Monday 22nd May

For those who want to stretch their stay a little longer, Alex will be leading stops on Monday in honour of the French, who fought the Battle of Charleroi as the BEF got its baptism of fire at Mons.

As usual, we will endeavour to do all we can re ride shares, so don’t let the lack of a car or a sheer terror of Belgian drivers (who are mad) stop you.

Price includes museum admissions, meals and some complimentary drinks with the meals.
