Palace plus Blenheim Palace is set to remain open all year round from 13 February 2016, excluding Christmas Day. Since opening to the public on 1 April 1950, the Oxfordshire country house has closed for the winter to allow time for its annual deep clean, which will still take place, but with the house remaining open.

It’s well known that the Dutch like to get a little intoxicated once and a while, but they also like to drink alcohol (!), and they have some pretty spectacular spots around the city to do it in. Whether you’re into some Belgian brews, craft cocktails, wine flights, or straight-up delicious jenever (it’s like gin's cooler, sexier cousin), these are the eight best places to grab a cold one in Amsterdam.

Go for a stroopwafel (the most delicious cookie EVER) at the Albert Cuypmarkt — or you can get them at many cafés in Amsterdam because they go so well with coffee.
