Michelle Chenery visits Liege and Spa in Wallonia

I still find it hard to believe the range of activities, cuisine and hospitality that we enjoyed in so short a time. As guests of the Brussels-Wallonia section of the Belgian Tourist Office and their associates, we were invited to whizz under the English Channel on Eurostar and, via the Midi Station in Brussels, to Liege.

Micest Event at Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle

ANTOR and ITCM hosted a fun gathering

Leeds Castle has it all – and the guests at the ANTOR-ITCM MICE Event enjoyed all it has to offer.

Founded as a Norman fortress in the 11thC, it illustrates additions and improvements over a 1,000-year period. Yes, it has modern amenities to make delegates feel comfortable, but it also has retained the most worthwhile features that create very fond memories of a visit there.
