We journey from London to Brussels aboard Eurostar and continue by rail to the Dutch city of Roosendaal. Our hotels are within walking distance from the station and there are plenty of restaurants in and around the town centre.
Our coach collects us from our hotel after breakfast and takes us to the spectacular Keukenhof Gardens for our included visit. Follow the winding pathways through a sea of colour, which surround shimmering lakes, mature trees and wonderful works of art. There are also themed pavilions and a hedge maze, along with musical entertainment throughout the day. After our visit we head to Amsterdam, the laid-back capital of the Netherlands. Built on a network of canals, this is a beautiful place to explore as you stroll alongside the water, across quaint bridges and through the streets with their grand facades. Alternatively you can join our optional canal cruise which gives a great perspective of the city. Later today we return to our hotel by rail.
Today our coach takes us to Floralia, the colourful flower show held in the grounds of Château de Grand-Bigard. Over 1.5 million bulbs have been hand planted by the castle’s gardeners under the ancient trees of the 14 hectare park that surrounds the fortress. In addition there is an exhibition of flowers in the greenhouses, where more than 10,000 flowers from various markets in Europe are brought in. In the afternoon we visit Brussels. This Belgian city is filled with international flair, from its beautiful medieval core filled with ancient buildings to its legendary chocolatiers and reputation as the capital of Europe. You can explore at leisure or join our optional excursion visiting the Atomium, a huge replica of an iron atom which has become the unmistakable symbol of Belgium. Later today we return to our hotel by rail.
We retrace our route to Brussels and join Eurostar for the return to London.
