Your Itinerary

Thursday 9th: Our outward journey takes us via York for time for sightseeing before
continuing to Hull for the evening P&O overnight ferry to Rotterdam.

Friday 10th: On arrival in Rotterdam, we disembark after breakfast 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. Keukenhof spring flowers blend beautifully in a landscape of established trees,
flowering shrubs, a huge variety of perennials, water gardens, fountains and a large lake.

Saturday 11th: Full day to Amsterdam. Holland’s most vibrant city boasts 165 canals,
1281 bridges, 42 museums and many great sights. Admire the 17th century merchant
houses or the floating flower market, which is ablaze with colour in every season.

Sunday 12th: 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. In the afternoon we'll return to the port of Rotterdam to embark for
your overnight voyage to Hull.

Monday 13th: Arrive in Hull. Disembark after breakfast and return home via Liverpool for
free time before arriving in Oswestry late afternoon.
