Optional tour – Nuwara Eliya 11-13 Nov 2018
After the steaminess of Galle we head for the hills through the tea plantations to the coolness of Nuwara Eliya. The colonial British loved it up here and the architecture very much reflects their influence. It really is a lovely, relaxing place to spend a couple of days between the 1st & 2nd Test matches.
