By train - the train journey from Kandy to nearby Nanu Oya is spectacular. Local buses run frequently from Nanu Oya to the centre of Nuwara Eliya.

By bus - buses can be taken from Colombo or Kandy.

Within the town itself there are a number of interesting sights. The Post Office is a very unusual building - a remnant of the colonial era. Victoria Park is a pleasant place to stroll.
