Keukenhof & the Dutch Bulbfields 2018
A must on any 'bouquet' list, this collection of short breaks features some very impressive floral displays. From the Dutch Bulbfields in Holland to the the Floralia Spring flower show in Belgium - we've got the pick of the bunch! Discover flourishing flower shows and the blooming delights of Europe this spring, with our collection of Flower and Garden Short Breaks.
The Netherlands’ love affair with tulips has been going strong for centuries. Billions of them burst into bloom every April, blanketing parks, fields and gardens in a rainbow’s worth of colours. Our favourite place to see them? Keukenhof Gardens.
Nicknamed the ‘Garden of Europe’, Keukenhof is absolutely spectacular in the springtime, with row upon row of brightly coloured tulips, woodland paths bordered by hyacinths and daffodils, and winding streams flecked with fallen blossom petals.
We’ve created two tours for 2018: Steaming Through the Bulbfields combines the bulbfields with a scenic steam railway journey and the Dutch Bulbfields & Gouda includes a visit to Gouda, plus the chance to sample its famous cheese.
