Antwerp 8
Antwerp is a very scenic city that is located in Belgium. Antwerp is a city that not only has amazing natural beauty but it also has many museums and sights to see. One of the most famous landmarks in Antwerp is the Central Station. It was built in the early 20th century and has amazing architecture. Plantin – Moretus Museum is home to one of the oldest Printing presses. It also has on display old books, library and some famous artworks. The churches are all gorgeous some of the ones that you must make time for are Cathedral of our Lady and the Carolus Borromeus Church. The Cogels - Osy lei street is a must visit place where you will feel you have entered Fairlyland, the street itself is not very Long but each house is like a masterpiece in architecture. Here is where you will find the most...

Waterloo 7
Waterloo is a fabulous vibrant place for all the family. South road has lots of venues for a good drink and restaurants gallore. The Little Pizza Kitchen and the Mexican are excellent quality. Stamps Too has fabulous live music as do a number of other pubs. The real gem for people coming to Waterloo is the beach and Anthony Gormleys another place plus the dunes, the lakeside walks and the lakeside centre itself which is excellent for adults and kids alike.
