Play Bridge & Explore

If you’re looking for a relaxed holiday with duplicate bridge, our Play & Explore holidays are ideal. Less competitive than our club standard holidays and suitable for players of all levels, these tours combine a relaxed bridge programme with smaller group sizes and beautiful destinations. Our Play & Explore collection of holidays will include at least two excursions or an activity pass in the package, making them ideal for the explorer at heart.

Play Bridge & Explore the Spring Gardens of Holland and Floriade River Cruise

Embrace Spring on this delightful river cruise, bursting with floral delights & beautiful gardens. Once every 10 years in the Netherlands, we are treated to the world's ultimate flower show in the form of a spectacular festival. In 2022, the Floriade World Horticultural Expo takes place in the Dutch town of Almere and will be spread over five themed zones in a celebration of plants, vegetables, fruit and produce. The Expo’s theme, ‘Growing Green Cities’, will focus on the Green City of the Future.

This colourful river cruise will also give you the option to spend time in the magnificent Keukenhof Gardens, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam and the famous ‘diamond city’ of Antwerp. And, to complete this floral bonanza you can visit Appletern Gardens, and the National Botanic Garden of Belgium – making this the perfect spring escape.

During the evenings, after a superb dinner on board, we play a relaxed bridge session directed by one of friendly bridge team.
