  • Tournai & Belgian Beer Festival

    Tournai is not only the oldest city in Belgium, thanks to King Henry VIII it also has the privilege of being the only city in Belgium which was once English. Crossed by the River Scheldt, 10km from the French border, this 2,000 year old city is waiting to be discovered and is one of Belgium’s best kept secrets with plenty to see and do.

    Tournai cathedral is one of the most beautiful religious monuments in the Western world. The Cathedral of Our Lady (Cathédrale Notre-Dame) is one of the most striking examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Dating from the 12th century, The Belfry of Tournai, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage, is Belgium's oldest. All the rooms along its 257 steps are now open to the public. Watch the multimedia show on its history, and panels on the purposes the belfry served throughout various times. You can also see the bell ringers room and bells, and climb to the top to gaze at the most beautiful panoramic view over Tournai and its surroundings. The Grand-Place is a relaxing area where you can enjoy local specialities in the shadow of the Belfry or go to the quays of the Scheldt and enjoy a stroll along the river.

    Our visit in March coincides with the annual Beer Festival. Belgium is renowned for its great diversity of beers and the festival showcases many regional and national breweries and the hundreds of different varieties. In the setting of the Halle aux Draps (Cloth Hall), a Renaissance building located at the Grand-Place, the festival programme includes tasting typical Belgian beers, various activities relating to beer, collectors’ exhibitions, swap meets and signing sessions. This is the ideal opportunity to obtain advice and discover new flavours as well as experiencing a lovely part of Belgium that Buzzlines hasn’t often visited in the past.

    Price includes return travel by coach and scheduled Eurotunnel crossing.

  • High Life in Amsterdam

    A delightful short break by coach from Kent to the great city of Amsterdam, visiting the fascinating mediaeval town of Edam and with en route visits to Antwerp and Gouda, and staying at the outstanding Ramada Apollo Hotel, winner of International Best Hotel awards in both 2014 and 2015.

    On our outward journey we stop in the fine city of Antwerp, and on our homebound day we pause our journey to enjoy some free time in Gouda, like Edam a charming mediaeval town famed for its cheese.  We stay at the 4* Ramada Apollo Hotel, renowned for the wonderful views from its 17th floor restaurant and for the even more elevated vista from its 85m high rooftop terrace and bar.

    ITINERARY

    On outward travel day our home pick-ups are quite early as we aim to be at the Folkestone terminal in good time for a 09:20 Eurotunnel crossing, bringing us into Calais for around 11:00 and onwards to Antwerp where we break for 2 hours in the city centre for lunch and a spot of sightseeing.  We then continue our journey into Amsterdam where given relatively light traffic we can expect to arrive at around 17:00 to a welcome drink and 3-course evening meal to follow in the hotel's panoramic-view 17th floor restaurant.

    Our hotel is about 3km west of the city centre but tram 13 stops close by and runs into the centre for those who would like to do their own exploring.  The Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum are within 30 minutes walk via Rembrandtpark and then Vondelpark. Alternatively, join us on our included excursions.

    After a relaxed breakfast, on Saturday we will head into the city centre for a boat cruise around the city centre canals before we allow ourselves a free afternoon to take in the many sights.  The coach will offer a later afternoon shuttle back to the hotel before we return to the centre of Amsterdam for the evening to enjoy our own choice of restaurant.

    Canals in Amsterdam

    For Sunday we again savour a leisurely breakfast before departing on a scenic drive via Lelystad and the N302 across the Ijsselmeer causeway to Hoorn and onwards for a lunchtime pause in Edam, always well appreciated by visitors for its mediaeval charm and fine hospitality. Beside shipbuilding, commerce has always been at the heart of the thriving development of Edam. Together with Amsterdam, Hoorn and Enkhuizen, Edam was one of the most important commercial towns in Holland. Today Edam is a town with authentic 17th century architecture, convincing proof of its rich past. When walking along the old streets and quiet canals, we can easily imagine what it was like in a Dutch town centuries ago. Well preserved gables, squares, bridges and monuments capture and hold the attention of the visitor. A stroll takes one past the tea-houses on the ‘Schepenmakersdijk’, the leaning Carillon tower (1561), the historic museum with the floating cellar, the Dam, the Town hall of Edam to the Great Church. This is one of the largest churches in the Netherlands and it has an extraordinary collection of richly coloured stained glass windows dating from the 17th century.

    We leave Edam in mid-afternoon for the short hop back to Amsterdam, giving us plenty of time for further exploration of the city centre as the evening draws in, and an evening meal in the hotel restaurant.

    On Monday we will check-out at around 9am and call initially at the Amsterdam flower market before moving on to break over lunchtime in the traditional town of Gouda. Gouda is everything you would expect of a Dutch country town with a ring of quiet canals encircling ancient buildings set amid a tangle of narrow lanes and alleys. The beautiful medieval square is the largest in the Netherlands complete with its 15th century town hall and also offers a cheese museum in the old weighing house. In addition to its famous cheese, perhaps visitors might like to try ’stroopwafels’, the renowned local syrup waffles.

    Continuing our journey in mid-afternoon, we will expect to arrive back at Calais for a crossing getting us back into Kent at around 9pm our time.
