Good to Go

You can holiday to Sri Lanka without having to quarantine either on your arrival in the country or on your return to the UK. There are also no travel advisories in place against travel from the FCDO meaning you can book with complete peace of mind.

Galle’s fort is one of Sri Lanka’s most relaxed and lovely places to visit. A busy port long before the Portuguese arrived, it was at Galle that they first made landfall, building an earthen-walled fort some years later on a rocky peninsula - when the Dutch arrived in the late 16th century it was properly fortified. What you’ll find today is a vibrant small walled town packed with old world charm, with many wonderful examples of the Dutch colonial style. It is best explored by walking the walls or the narrow alleyways where you’ll stumble upon Dutch-style churches, mosques, museums and a plethora of boutique shops and cafes.
