Amsterdam Trip

For the second year running Tallulah Rose has collaborated with ECT travel to provide a three-day tour to go to the heart of the flower industry and explore the city of Amsterdam.

You will visit the world’s largest flower and plant auction – Royal FloraHolland where you will experience the buzz and excitement of the flower auctions. As a contrast, you will spend time at the family run rose breeding company – Meijer Roses, who are renowned for their award-winning Avalanche rose.

A visit to the Frans Hals Museum will give you the chance to admire painting collections by Dutch and Flemish masters, whilst also seeing their annual tulip exhibition of floral displays. Finally, you will take a trip to see the beautiful garden of Keukenhof. Each spring over seven million flowering bulbs bloom…. tulips, anemones, daffodils, freesias and hyacinths fill the garden with what promises to be an assault on the senses!
