Nuwara Eliya is often referred to by the Sri Lankan tourist industry as ‘Little England’. And while the toy-town ambience does have something of an English country village to it, it comes with a disorienting surrealist edge.
Sports and natureThree-wheelers whiz past red telephone boxes. Water buffalo daubed in iridescent dye for the Tamil festival of Thaipongal mingle outside a pink brick Victorian post office. A well-tended golf course morphs seamlessly into a rolling carpet of tea plantations. The dusty and bustling centre of town is a thoroughly Sri Lankan tangle, but scratch the surface a little to reveal colonial bungalows, well- tended hedgerows and pretty rose gardens. In earlier times, Nuwara Eliya (meaning ‘City of Light’) was the favoured cool-climate escape for the hard-working and hard-drinking English and Scottish pioneers of Sri Lanka’s tea industry. A rainy-day, misty-mountain atmosphere still blankets the town from November to February – don’t come expecting tropical climes – but during April’s spring release, the town is crowded with domestic holiday-makers enjoying horse racing and sports-car hill climbs and celebrating the Sri Lankan New Year. The cost of accommodation escalates wildly, and Nuwara Eliya becomes a busy, busy party town. For the rest of the year, the economy is based on tea, cool-climate vegetables, and even more tea. Treat yourself to a night at one of Nuwara Eliya’s colonial hotels, play a round of golf and a few frames of billiards, and escape into the town’s curious combination of heritage and the here-and-now.
Culture and historyThe city was founded by Samuel Baker, the discoverer of Lake Albert and the explorer of the Nile in 1846. Nuwara Eliya's climate lent itself to becoming the prime sanctuary of the British civil servants and planters in Ceylon. Nuwara Eliya, called Little England then, was also a hill country retreat where the British colonialists could immerse in their pastimes such as fox hunting, deer hunting,elephant hunting, polo, golf and cricket.
