London to Amsterdam
Whether you have a fear of flying, are looking for a more affordable option or simply want to lower your carbon footprint and enjoy being able to see where you’re going while travelling, taking the ferry from London to Amsterdam is a fantastic option. It’s not only a cheaper option in many respects, but in overall travelling time it’s not much different to flying and having to check-in, waiting for the flight and getting to the other side.
The best way to get from London to Amsterdam is via the Dutch Flyer through Stena Line. Travelling from London on the train, you head to Harwich International Port and switch to the ferry. Then, you take the ferry to Hoek in Holland and again a short train ride into Amsterdam. The whole journey is made extra special as you get to experience different modes of transport, enjoy the sights and sounds of the train and feel the excitement building as you arrive at Hoek. Once you’re on Dutch soil, you have a new atmosphere to get used to and by the time you’ve reached Amsterdam, you’re ready for all of the sights and attractions the stunning city has on offer.
With the Stena Line Dutch Flyer, all your travelling is taken care of with one ticket. You simply board the train heading from London to Amsterdam in the evening, and arrive in Amsterdam in the early morning. That way, you won’t feel like you’ve missed out on a day’s travelling and can catch up on some sleep on the ferry before being ready to head out in the city once you arrive. So, the train and ferry rides are not only quick and painless, but they are comfortable, affordable and it’s so easy to organise.
Once you’re in Amsterdam, the world is your oyster. You can take a guided tour of the stunning and quirky city by bicycle or take a guided boat ride on the canals. Visit the many museums and cafés, or head to the outskirts of the city and see the stunning tulip fields. With an array of things to do and see, you’ll never get bored in Amsterdam as there is always something new and fascinating on every street corner. For shop-a-holics, there are many designer boutiques and fashion stores, or if you’re looking for a bargain, head to the famous Flea Markets that take place and pick up some souvenirs to take home.
As you can see, there are more ways to get to Holland and Amsterdam in particular than just flying. With the Stena Line Dutch Flyer ticket, all of the hassle and organising is taken away so you’re left to simply turn up, grab your train seat and let the company do the work. You can use the Wi-Fi Internet on the train, head to the restaurants on the ferry, enjoy a drink in the bars or watch from the deck as Europe’s mainland draws closer. It really is more of an event taking the ferry from London to Amsterdam.
