How to get to The Hague
Getting to The Hague is surprisingly simple. Our English speaking Dutch friends are under an hour away when you fly from London's City Airport with City Jet.
London City Airport itself is refreshingly simple to get to by DLR or via taxi for a reasonable sum (this may be preferable if you have an early flight to catch). My Air France City Jet flight was effortless, even arriving in Rotterdam airport 15 minutes early.
From the airport there are buses into The Hague, (although I had a driver collect me from the hotel) - the journey is less than 20 minutes so you can settle in quickly and make the most of your city break.
Once you're on location in The Hague there are a number of ways of seeing the city. Horse and carriage is Queen Beatrix's traditional ceremonial way of getting out and about in The Hague, but for us lesser folk, you can usually get most places by foot.
If you're keen to travel the length and breadth of The Hague, then the public transport links are fantastic. There are frequent trams and buses (although rumor has it they actually take longer than cycling).
Being Holland there are bicycles everywhere so watch where you are walking as they're not too sympathetic to meandering tourists cluttering up the cycle routes.
