Sunday 14th: Our outward journey takes us via York for time for sightseeing before continuing to Hull for the evening P&O overnight ferry to Rotterdam.
Monday 15th: We disembark and head to Keukenhof Gardens. Famed for its breathtaking displays of bulbs, Keukenhof has a whopping six million bulbs bloom every year to form a sea of flowers, between March and May. We cannot guarantee flowers will be in bloom, this is dependent on spring weather. We continue to the Van der Valk Hotel.
Tuesday 16th: Full day in Amsterdam. Holland’s most vibrant city boasts 165 canals, 1281 bridges, 42 museums and many great sights.
Wednesday 17th: We travel north to De Simonehoeve a local cheese farm and wooden shoe factory, for demonstrations of how these traditional dutch products are made. We will then continue on to the nearby old fishing village of Volendam, well-known for its old fishing boats and the traditional clothing still worn by some residents. The women's costume of Volendam, with its high, pointed bonnet, is one of the most recognizable of the dutch traditional costumes, and is often featured on tourist postcards and posters. In the afternoon we'll return to the port of Rotterdam to embark for your overnight voyage to Hull
Thursday 12th: Arrive in Hull. Disembark after breakfast and return home via Liverpool for free time before arriving in Oswestry late afternoon.
