The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels by Derek Blyth
A unique guidebook written by a true Brussels insider who knows the city like the back of his hand. The aim is not to cover the city form A to Z, but to inspire. This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city's best-kept secrets. Derek has visited Le Méridien Brussels on several occasions as a big favourite with our regular and new guests alike. Always ready to offer up some new secrets not only in Brussels but in Antwerp and soon Ghent too. See photos of our latest event with Derek in March 2014 here.
