Brussels and Brugges are only about 2 hours apart by train. You can see Brugges in a day. I'd say do both.

Fyling into London, I would do it London-Amsterdam-Brugge-Brussels-Cologne-Berlin-Prague by train, provided I was on a railpass or had gotten a special offer for the train tickets.

Flying, I would do it London-Berlin-Amsterdam, then to Brussels and Brugge by train or bus, then flying Brussels-Vienna (=70 CAN for Brussels-Vienna in May with SkyEurope).

And yes, I would search the flights through skyscanner.net! Actually, I would even fix my initiary around the flights I could find cheap through this site.

BTW, have you looked at the option of flying with Zoom into Glasgow? Glasgow has cheap connecting flights to Europe too.

Budapest is a great city, great atmosphere and the people are really nice, and its history is huge!!!
I'm not so sure about going to Marseille, or if you do, a day is enough to visit all there is to see: one or 2 museums, the old port, the cathedral on top of the hill, and from the old port take a boat that goes to the "calanques", beautiful place next to marseille, it's really worth it!!!!!
