A land of tea estates and billiards

Retreat to the cool climes of Sri Lanka's Little England for a few days exploring plantations, hiking, and of course drinking tea

Travel back in time with a stay at the old British hill station of Nuwara Eliya, which feels like an enchanting fossilised version of old England in Sri Lanka’s beautiful Hill Country.

Have high tea at the Grand Hotel, play some billiards in the Hill Club, visit a nearby tea estate, take a boat ride on Lake Gregory, or head out for a walk in the stunning Horton Plains National Park. There’s plenty to do here for a couple of days on your travels – and the train journey from Kandy, and onwards to Ella, is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world.
