When you go from Brussels with the TGV towards Lille or London, it's recommended to be at the train station at least 30 minutes before the scheduled leaving time. This is because the train goes to Great Britain and the security measures are similar to those at an airport. That means that you will be scanned, as well as your bags and also your passport will be checked numerous time by the police there. If there are a lot of passengers, the waiting time will be quite big.

Brussels Nightlife

Brussels nightlife not only bubbles because the city is located in the very center of Europe, but it also thrives because it holds its very own home-grown scene.

The legal age to drink in Belgium is sixteen years old and a lot [...]
