Dutch Explorer & Bulbfields

Dutch Explorer & Bulbfields

Enjoy the spectacular of the Keukenhof gardens with its 32 acres of flowers, along with a short boat trip and a steam train journey.

The Dutch Bulbfields are a perfect sight in the spring with a mass of colour and variety on show. A visit to the largest flower garden in the world is located in the grounds of a 15th century castle where approximately seven million bulbs are planted in a park covering 32 hectares. We also explore part of the Netherlands using some historic transport such as an historic steamer and a steam tram train showing off typical Dutch countryside. We also visit Arnhem famous for its Wartime connections and visit the Airborne at the Bridge museum.
