Park Scene

A peaceful scene in the gardens.

Veurne is a pretty town not far from the French border. It was hot and sunny when we went here in September 2006.

Ornate buildings tower above trees.

The Grote Markt is surrounded by beautiful, ornate buildings. Veurne is a historic town with a history dating back centuries. In the First World War, King Albert I had his headquarters in the town, when Ieper was under attack. The town suffered more damage in the Second World War but the buildings have been beautifully restored to their former glory.
