It has earned the name ‘Little England’ owing to its colonial architecture.

Four times daily there is a train coming from Colombo or Kandy, and it then proceeds further to Badulla. The train’s name is ‘Udarata Menike’, and the journey itself is spectacular.

There is actually no train station in Nuwara Eliya proper, the closest one is in Nanuoya, 6 km of Nuwara Eliya. There are plenty of tuk tuks and local buses waiting at the train station in Nanuoaya that go to the centre of Nuwara Eliya.
