Explore Nuwara Eliya
Nuwara Eliya was established as a colonial British hill-station in about 1846 and very much retains its charming atmosphere. You’ll drive (or walk) past a collection of colonial buildings from the Queen’s Cottage and General’s, now used by dignitaries from the government of Sri Lanka. See the interesting Post Office and either stop for tea in the Hill Club or Grand Hotel. Continue to Holy Trinity Church, constructed in 1852, and containing quite a few memorials on the walls to British residents of the town, as well as tombs in the churchyard. If you have time, you can see the Botanical Gardens (Hakgala Gardens).
