VISIT TWO OF EUROPE’S MOST SPECTACULAR FLORAL DISPLAYS

Visit two of Europe’s most spectacular floral displays and enjoy the unforgettable scent and colour as millions of bulbs burst into life. For eight weeks of the year, Keukenhof Gardens opens its gates to visitors from around the world, who come to admire a picture perfect landscape filled with more than seven million flowers. It is without doubt the best place to see tulips in the Netherlands. In the neighbouring country of Belgium, the beautiful grounds surrounding Château de Grand-Bigard are also ablaze with the colour of over 1.5 million hand-planted bulbs. Together with the fascinating city of Brussels and the pretty town of Delft, this is an idyllic springtime break.

Day 1: London - Antwerp

We journey from London to Brussels aboard Eurostar and continue by rail to the Belgian city of Antwerp. Our hotel is within walking distance from the station and tonight, we gather as a group and enjoy an evening meal in a local restaurant.

Day 2: Delft - Keukenhof Gardens

Our coach collects us from our hotel after breakfast and takes us to Delft, the pretty city renowned for its connections with Johannes Vermeer and Delft Blue earthenware. We have some free time to explore before we continue to the spectacular Keukenhof Gardens for our included visit. Follow the winding pathways through a sea of colour, which surrounds 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. Later today we return to our hotel by coach.

Day 3: Floralia & Brussels

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'll have time to explore at leisure; perhaps visit 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 coach.

Day 4: Antwerp - London

We retrace our route to Brussels and join Eurostar for the return to London.
