Despite being small in size, the city of Amsterdam has plenty to offer and being within such easy reach of the UK makes it the perfect destination for a city break! Rich in culture and history, the city offers a lot of art galleries and great museums including the world-famous Anne Frank and Van Gogh museums. Along the charming cobbled streets you will find quirky cafés and delicious restaurants where you can enjoy fine cuisine. The picturesque winding streets and canals also make exploring the city by bicycle or by canal boat a popular option for many. As the sun sets, eclectic nightlife keeps the city alive into the small hours, with a great selection of chic bars and epic night clubs throughout the city.
