School trips to Dutch Coast
Noordwijk Aan Zee is a delightful resort on the Dutch coast, and a firm favourite with Equity groups. The resort is ideally located in the heart of the Dutch bulbfields countryside, and within 45 minutes of both Amsterdam and The Hague.
Valkenburg is another great choice for British schools. The city has a vast choice of educationally rich excursions, from a space centre and model coal-mine to a circus training school and open air theatre. This historic city has a safe pedestrianised centre that was originally mined by the Romans and there is a labyrinth of caves to explore. Experience seeing 4 countries at once from Valkenburg’s ruined castle and Wilhelmina Tower.
