Palace Op De Dam
Situated in the centre of Amsterdam the palace was built as the city hall in 17th century. Renowned sculptors were brought to Amsterdam and famous painters such as Rembrandt contributed to the interior.
Owned by the Willet-Holthuysen family this 17th century mansion was left to the city on the proviso that it be preserved and opened as a museum. The house is lavishly decorated and furnished in the fashion of the time and contains many rare objets d’art; glassware, silver, fine china and paintings.

Bringing 500 years of dark history to life in one terrifying experience, The Amsterdam Dungeon, a relatively new attraction to the city, takes visitors on a virtual journey through its gruesome past. On arrival, the sight of skeletons and the sounds of dark, Gregorian chanting makes for an eerie welcoming to the horrors of medieval Amsterdam.

The visits were all excellent and well worthwhile. Particular favourites were the Futureland boat trip around the port of Rotterdam, painting plates at Delft and the Broeker Veiling visit. The staff at these venues were professional and welcoming. Dover Grammar School for Girls
