Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Including travel by rail

  • Your trip begins with a two-hour Eurostar train journey from London into Brussels. Settle in at your hotel and then enjoy an afternoon walking tour of the city’s historic district with your private guide.

  • Using Belgium’s comfortable train system, you’ll spend the day in Bruges, where a local guide will show you around the medieval canal city. Following the tour, you can enjoy Bruges at your leisure and return by train at the time you choose.

  • A day at leisure in Brussels gives you time to visit some of the excellent museums the city has to offer, take in the European District with its distinct architecture and parks, or catch the train to nearby Antwerp or Ghent.

  • Leaving Brussels, you’ll take the high-speed train to Amsterdam, reaching the city in just two hours. You have time to check into your hotel before an afternoon tasting tour of the city with a private guide. You’ll sample some of Amsterdam’s best snacks while learning about its rich history.

  • Enjoy a trip to Waterland, a sea-facing swathe of countryside outside Amsterdam, with a private driver, visiting three traditional fishing villages threaded with canals and steeped in culture. You’ll stop at Edam and see how the cheese is traditionally made, see the bright-painted houses of Marken and finish by the wooden ships on the cobbled streets of Volendam.

  • With a free day in Amsterdam, you can rent a bicycle and explore the surrounding countryside, view collections of the Dutch masters at one of numerous museums or visit another canal city, Utrecht, by train.

  • Return to London by Eurostar.

Accommodation options

While the itinerary price reflects the suggested accommodation, Audley trips are 100% tailor-made, and a specialist can help you select the option best suited to your tastes and budget.
