A weekend floral coach tour to The Netherlands, staying in Delft.

Troop in the spring with a visit to the bulb displays at the gardens of Keukenhof.  Nestled in the heart of the Dutch countryside.

Keukenhof comprises eighty acres of parkland and each year the gardens are open for eight weeks to showcase the impressive planting of over seven million spring flowering bulbs.  

A 45 minute ‘Whisper’ electric boat trip will take you around the bulb fields giving you an ideal opportunity to take great photos.   Set at three different locations in the park are pavilions showcasing themed flower displays and demonstrations. The 2016 exhibition programme included 19 different floral shows, scheduled throughout the season.

You will also visit the Van den Berg Greenhouse, where you will be warmly welcomed by master florist and owner, Astrid Van den Berg. Astrid will provide a floral demonstration, sharing some of her extensive knowledge of floral art, as well as offering great floral sundries for sale. 

Delft, is a traditional and charming, Dutch town and the home of Delft blue pottery.  A visit is included to the De Delfste Pauw Delftware factory, established in the 17th century and exclusively producing and selling entirely hand-painted Delftware.
