With a temperate climate and magical landscapes, Nuwara Eliya town is fondly referred to as “Little England”; it beckons visitors to its pleasing locale, steeped in historic riches and colonial influence. Though the city is best discovered during the month of April owing to its festive appeal, tourists may also want to go bird watching at the beautiful Victoria Park or take a boat ride on Gregory Lake. Horse rides by the banks of the lake are especially popular if travelling with kids.
