Looking for a short food technology trip abroad filled with interesting and educational activities? Then choose Bruges and Boulogne!
We recommend that you start your food technology school trip to Bruges & Boulogne with a visit to the beautiful Belgian city. In Bruges you can visit a sweet factory for a demonstration on how sweets are made and learn about the history of chocolate at Choco-Story. You can also visit the Friet Museum – the first and only museum in the world dedicated to potato fries.
One of our most popular activities in Boulogne is a ‘hands-on’ pancake-making demonstration with the chance to sample what you’ve made. And on your way back to Calais, you can visit a traditional French boulangerie, where you’ll get to taste some freshly baked bread.
