Go to the north of the municipality of Uccle and discover a green and urban district in the heart of the capital: the Churchill-Montjoie district. Located between the Bois de la Cambre and the Avenue Brugmann, it has a wide range of shops, numerous parks and gardens and is very well served by public transport.
The Churchill-Montjoie district is located between Avenue Brugmann, Avenue de Fré and Rue Vanderkindere and is ideally enclosed on its western flank by the Bois de la Cambre. It is here, close to the Observatory and Châtelain districts, that we invite you to enjoy an escapade in one of the most peaceful districts of Uccle.
Let’s start our visit of the district with the most famous of Brussels’ parks: the Bois de la Cambre. To do this, take tram number 7 or bus number 38 and get off at the Longchamp stop. You are at the eastern end of the district, at the intersection of Avenue Churchill and Chaussée de Waterloo. This is where city dwellers come to recharge their batteries and sometimes even enjoy a seafood platter at Brasseries Georges. Can you hear the sound of the birds? The laughter of the children playing on the playground in front of the Patinoire restaurant?
Enjoy this quiet moment in the heart of the city before heading north to Avenue Montjoie where you will find the park of the same name, a popular place for parents and children. If you like tennis, go to Rue Edith Cavell, where you will find the Tennis Club Uccle Cavell.
On the way to the Brugmann Park, stop at the Van Buuren Museum. Here you will find a fine collection of paintings by Flemish and Italian masters displayed in a magnificent Art Deco villa. The labyrinthine gardens are also worth a visit.
Finally, if you like parrots, you can listen to the parrots of the Place Guy D’Arezzo, so dear to the heart of the writer Marc-Emmanuel Schmitt, at the crossroads of the Rue de l’Anémone, the Avenue Molière and the Rue Jules Lejeune.
The district will delight sports enthusiasts. The Royal Leopold Club Tennis, Padel and Hockey Club is located in the heart of the Brugmann Park. A little further down the road is the Longchamps swimming pool. Do you like horseback riding? You can ride at the Centre Equestre La Cambre. And for your little ones, it’s at the Little Gym in de Fré-Cavell that they can work out.
Culture is not to be outdone. The Churchill district has a large media library between Avenue Gobert and Langeveld. In the heart of the district, the Rossy Art Gallery is renowned for its exhibitions, while the Centre Culturel d’Uccle offers first-class artistic performances. A great way to end your day.
