Arts and Gardens of Holland Featuring Floriade - by Ferry

5 days

From £745

Activity Level:


Held every ten years at a different venue in The Netherlands, Floriade is one of the premier events of the horticultural world. In 2022 the spotlight falls on Almere, near Amsterdam, where a purpose-built site has been created to provide a ‘living laboratory’ with inspirational and innovative exhibitions by countries, cities and businesses. There will also be a host of impressive attractions, heaps of art and culture and a unique collection of trees, shrubs and flowers. The theme of this, the seventh iteration of the event, is ‘Growing Green Cities’. With the world’s urban population expanding to 70%, cities will have to find creative, green and sustainable solutions to remain safe, healthy and attractive and these proposed solutions will be central to the exhibits at the 2022 Expo.

Our tour also includes visits to some of the great artistic treasures of The Netherlands, such as the Kröller-Müller Museum with its unique combination of nature, art and architecture, the magnificent canal-side residence and garden at the Museum van Loon, the richly endowed Mauritshuis art gallery, the Royal Delft Factory and the Vermeer Centre, showcasing the work of one of the best known artists from the Dutch Golden Age. Note that in April this is replaced with a visit to the magnificent gardens of Keukenhof.

We are based at a comfortable and conveniently located hotel in Delft, a typical Dutch town of tree lined canals, tiny white bridges, pointed gables and small courtyards, and home to the famous blue pottery.
