Breda

Breda is a city in the south of the Netherlands. Many of the city's medieval buildsings have survived, and some of its main attractions include the OLV Church, and the Wilhelminastraat. The city is a well-known shopping destination, particularly good for clothing.

Breda can be easily reached from Amsterdam by train in around two hours. Alternatively, the city is about a 90 minute drive from the three main ports in the Netherlands.

How to get to Breda from
Route 1:

An alternative to the Dutch Flyer or International Rail options for travelling between London and Amsterdam is to catch a Eurolines coach. The route offers up to ten services between the cities each day, and it is one of the most carbon-efficient ways of travelling. On some services, Eurolines Plus coaches are used, which offer passengers DVDs and extra legroom. One other advantage of travelling by coach is the luggage allowance; each passenger is allowed two medium sized suitcases, a much greater free allowance than is offered by budget airlines.

Passengers must check in at least 30 minutes before the coach is due to depart (although they can check in from 1 hour before departure, and at London check in closes 15 minutes before departure). You will need to show your passport or travel documentation before being issued with a boarding card. If you are travelling with luggage, make sure it is labelled as it will be stored under the coach.

This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by by Eurotunnel or by P&O ferry (except where stated). When you get to the port/train terminal, you will have to get off the coach and go through border control.
