Destination

HOLLAND

Holland has much to recommend it as both a conference and incentive destination. Ease of access from most UK airports, high quality hotel accommodation, friendly locals with English as a second language, and a picturesque landscape full of history, dotted with castles, canals, windmills and lakes.

Amsterdam is a historic city, with an impressive collection of over forty museums and a choice of opera, ballet and classical music. It is also one of Europe's most lively venues with a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars to suit all tastes and budgets.

Nightlife in Amsterdam can be found in three centres; the Rembrandtplein and Thorbeckeplein (two adjacent squares full of night-clubs, cabarets, bars and cafes) and finally there is the Leidseplein, the youngest area with a selection of discos, cafes and bars.
