Delft


A visit to Delft must include the new Vermeer visitor's centre where you (and the hordes of other people) will see replicas and interpretations of all his works, although disappointingly none of the originals.

There is also an exhibition on the style of his work, and myriad reproductions of the Girl with the Pearl Earring.

And no visit to Delft would be complete without a look at the famous pottery, and De Porceleyne Fles, the oldest established pottery in town, is within walking distance of the harbour. A tour of the facility delivers you, inevitably, into the factory shop - just don't set your heart on the big tulip vase, unless you've got a big budget for souvenirs.
