The city of Nuwara Eliya is also called ‘Little England’ mainly due to its climate, the average daily temperature stays around 15C throughout the year. British colonists liked this location and it was like a home to them, they used to spend their time here hunting, playing cricket or golf.
Perhaps the biggest attraction in Nuwara Eliya is Queen Victoria Park. It is known that this park was initially built by German princes. In 1897, it was named after Queen Victoria on her 60th anniversary.
It is a very well maintained park, a treat to eyes. An estimated 100,000 locals and 5000 foreign tourists visit this part yearly.
