Amsterdam neighbourhood guide

At just under 4 hours from London, direct with Eurostar, Amsterdam has never been easier to get to. The perfect destination for a chilled weekend break with friends, a fun family getaway or even a romantic weekend, it's a city that can be visited again and again.

If you've never been before, the first thing to do is decide where to stay. Do you want to be in the heart of the action for clubbing, drinking and eating out? Are you planning on spending most of your time in the Museum district admiring the Old Masters? Are windmills, tulips and canals on the top of your wish list or do you prefer discovering the edgier, less touristy parts of town?

Whatever your preference, budget or type of trip, you'll find what you're looking for in this exciting and fun-filled city.
