In the heart of the island, at the foot of Mount Pedro, Nuwara Eliya, often called Little England, is steeped in 19C colonial allure thanks to its bungalows, fake-Tudor hotels and well-tended hedgerows and gardens. Today the hill resort is popular with the island's middle-classes, who head for the former plantation estates, now guesthouses. Lake Victoria and its surroundings are the scene of polo matches and it would not do to turn up in the turn-of-the-20C hotels without a jacket and tie.
