The stunningly beautiful market square is a wonderful place to enjoy a drink or a meal and sit people watching. Always busy and bustling with the weekly Saturday morning market that is worth wandering about.

Ypres Town Centre is a lovely place. Very atmospheric especially at night when it is all lit up. There are plenty of shops, restaurants etc to occupy yourself. the local people were also very welcoming and friendly.
