Your Experience

This amazing adventure starts with a night in multicultural Colombo to get you settled, before six nights by the sea for the first test in beautiful Galle. Before the second test in historic Kandy, two unforgettable stopovers in the popular destinations of Udawalawe and Nuwara Eliya will take your breath away. Marvel at the scenic surroundings of Udawalawe and its famous national park, or for extra excitement enjoy a Jeep safari around the wild landscape. Deep in the tranquil green hills of tea country, Nuwara Eliya’s colonial character gives a real sense of the history and heritage of Sri Lanka. These two unforgettable locations, bookended by international test cricket in two of the sport’s most iconic city stadiums, add up to something special. England fans who want a taste of the culture beyond the test ground will never forget this 16-night, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
