Amsterdam is 223 miles or 358.81 kilometres from London based upon longitudinal and latitudinal locations, however it may be further to travel depending on what mode of transport you use. Amsterdam can now be reached, by plane, train, ship and by car from London.

By plane at an average cruise speed of 450 mph (724.1 kmh) your flying time would be in the region of 1 hour. It is simple to fly to Amsterdam from London due to numerous airports in the General London Boundary. All of these airports have many airline companies which fly from London directly to Amsterdam.

If travelling by train at an average speed of 100mph (160.9 kmh) it would take you around 2.2 hours to get from London to Amsterdam. Here the Eurostar train can take you from London through to Brussels where a simple change can be made and then straight to Amsterdam.

Amsterdam was once one of the major ports in Europe and was a main harbour for the Dutch East India trading company. So it is no wonder that Amsterdam can easily be travelled to from London. To do this you would have to travel from London by either car or train to Portsmouth where you can get the ferry over to the Port of Amsterdam.

Travelling by car is the longest journey to make and there are many different routes which can be taken. If an average speed of 40mph is used the journey can take at least 5.6 hours however if travelling at an average speed of 70mph the journey time can be significantly decreased to at least 3.2 hours.

Amsterdam is the largest and capital city of the Netherlands with a population of 780,152 within city limits, an urban population of 1,209,419 and a metropolitan population of 2,158,592. Throughout the years Amsterdam has established a reputation as one of Europe’s foremost cities in terms of architecture and design. This reputation is not only due to the picturesque 17th-Century rings of canals, but also to the modern architecture developing naturally between the facades of historical buildings.

The distance between Amsterdam in the Netherlands and London England is approximately three hundred and fifty six kilometres or two hundred and twenty one miles. This distance is the approximate distance a plane would cover if flying between the two cites. Travelling by sea or road can be longer. One can now even drive to Amsterdam from London. The car can cross the channel either by ferry or by the channel tunnel and drive through France and Belgium. A ferry or ship can be taken from one of the coastal ports in England and Amsterdam is itself a port city.
Amsterdam is the Netherlands business centre and one of the most important cities in Europe. It was at one time the busiest port as well and the centre of the diamond industry.

London is the capital city of England while Amsterdam is the capital city of Holland. Thus they are two big cities located in two different countries. But despite that they are quite close to one another and can be accessed by even road or ferry. There is a distance of 357.52 kilometres and 222.16 miles between each other.

Try using distance calculators to find out the distance between any two places in the world. There are many such toolbars available on the internet. This distance is calculated from the latitudes and longitudes of these areas and hence there might be variations in the driving distances. You can also use the more traditional method of checking out maps and atlases but distance calculators are more easy and time saving. But in case you need maps then there are several places on the internet where you can get moving maps which helps you in your purpose.
