Very beautiful with bars cafes The Menin Gate and Flanders Fields Museum. The Cathedral also has a stained glass window which was made in Yorkshire.

On a very hot May Day we walked around the market prior to visiting the two big churches. Enjoyed a lovely cold Belgian beer.

A lovely square used as a car park on most days and as a market square on Saturdays. Surrounded by lovely buildings reconstructed after the war, cafes and restaurants it is a nice place to absorb the towns ambience, particularly on a sunny day

This is a great central place from which to explore the town. What makes it all the more remarkable is looking at photographs of the square during WW1 - I am in awe at how they managed to rebuild to every last detail.
