Cigarette Duty Free Allowance

Does anyone know how many cigarettes I can bring back from Amsterdam. (Normal ones of course - not those funny smelling ones).

HM Revenue & Customs guidelines suggest that up to 3200 cigarettes can be considered for personal use. However expect to be quizzed closely if you are carrying more than 1 brand, as this gets their smuggling suspicions going.

However, if you're flying, the shop at the airport will only sell you 800 against your boarding card.
Technically, none - they will not be duty free, but duty paid (in the Netherlands) - for numbers see above post.
And just to add that the prices in the airport are the same as those as the shops in Amsterdam.
