We first visited Amsterdam in 2001 and it is time we visited again.

Amsterdam is a busy and vibrant city which has always been a major port and point of access to the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Our Safari will be looking mainly at the 19th and 20th century development of the city though a number of earlier sites will be included. The city promoted planned development in the early 20th century and we will be looking at some of the housing schemes built at that time. We will also be exploring the development of the port and the transport links connected to that.

The city has an extensive tram network and we will be using that to travel round the city.

There are a number of flights to Amsterdam from regional British Airports and Eurostar offers some direct trains taking about 4 hours from London.
