Morning departure from the local area, we travel to York for some free time before we continue the journey to Hull for our evening ferry to Rotterdam.


Leaving the ferry around 8.00am, we make our way to the hotel. You will be met and welcomed by your Travel Partner representative who will accompany you throughout. After an evening meal at the hotel you will have the evening free to wander round and take in the atmosphere.


A guided tour of Germany's capital of Carnival. Cologne has a long and illustrious history, which stretches back to Roman times. The cathedral is Germany's most popular attraction and it is easy to see why. Hugely imposing, with twin steeples over 500ft tall, the gothic masterpiece can be seen from miles around, and it is no wonder that it was placed on the world heritage list. Your guide will explain all about the construction, which took over 600 years to complete, as well as all the features and history, which make this such a special place (no guided tour inside the cathedral). After some free time to explore the city, you will return to your hotel for an early dinner before the highlight of this tour awaits you: André Rieu and his orchestra will take the stage. A swinging evening with the king of waltz that will remain in your memory for a long time.


Our day begins after breakfast with a visit to The Hague. A cosmopolitan city with a tale of 2 halves. On the one hand you have the modern central financial district with its sky scrapers and impressive glass and steel buildings of the International Courts and the United Nations. On the other hand there is the fantastic architecture of the royal conservatory, the Ridderzaal, the beautiful Noordeinde Palace where the King and Queen work and the Kneuterdijk and Lange Voorhout former palace's now a state building and museum. In the afternoon we will make our way to the trendy seaside town of Scheveningen with its miles of beautifully kept beach. A walk along the beach or promenade is recommended and you can stop for a drink in one of the many pavilions and cafés, see the fishing boats in the harbour or admire the boats in the marina. In the early evening you then rejoin the coach to make our way to the overnight ferry to begin the journey home.


Departing the ferry around 8.30am we journey home from Hull, with comfort stops en-route. Arriving back to Cumbria mid-afternoon.
