Suggested Itinerary

Amsterdam and Rotterdam

Catch a Eurostar service from London St Pancras which will take you under the English Channel, through France and Belgium and then  straight through to Amsterdam. If you are starting your journey in Ashford or Ebbsfleet, direct trains don’t stop at these stations so you would need to catch a train to Brussels and then board a connecting service to Amsterdam.

On arrival at Amsterdam’s Centraal station, make your way to the Max Brown Canal District Hotel (or similar) where you have a 2 night stay.

Enjoy a full day at leisure in the Dutch capital. Amsterdam is one of the top travel destinations in Europe, with a wide choice of world-class museums and a stunning cityscape threaded through with historic canals. Art lovers will be in their element at the magnificent Rijksmuseum and nearby Van Gogh Museum, dedicated to the great painter and his contemporaries. You can also explore by taking a cruise along the famous network of canals or hire a bike and travel around as the locals do.

A short train journey brings you to Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam and an international port. Your base here will be at the citizenM Rotterdam Hotel (or similar).

Rotterdam was left almost entirely in ruins after World War II, but since that time, the city has become a model of urban innovation and architecture, with buildings such as the main station and unique Market Hall (pictured) tourist attractions in their own right. Waterways are also a part of life here, with plenty of cruises on offer and canal-side cafés to people-watch from.

Spend another day discovering Rotterdam and then this evening, collect your bags from your hotel and make your way back to the station for a return journey direct to London St Pancras in under 3 hours!
