Bara Gumbad, Delhi, India

Delhi

Spending a few days in Delhi is a wonderful introduction to this great country and to its extensive and fascinating history.

Delhi may be one of the world’s largest metropolis, but architectural wonders – new and old – fill the city, hidden beneath Delhi’s urban sprawl.

Our expert guide will make sure you don’t miss anything and will gladly advise on places to eat, shop or explore in your own time.

The Highlights of Delhi

The only way to explore Delhi is with our expert guide. Discovering the city can only truly be achieved in the company of someone who really knows how to navigate this vast metropolis.

Start by exploring the fascinating and living legacy of the Indo-Islamic culture in Old Delhi. Wander in the busy and narrow streets of the mile-long Chandni Chowk, popularly called “The Silver Street”, surrounded by shops and bazaars. Visit the largest mosque of Old Delhi which can accommodate 20,000 people at one time – Jama Masjid with its tapering minarets and wonderful marble domes. Drive past the magnificent Parliament Building, the Rashtrapati Bhawan (the official residence of the President of India in the 330 acres of land and designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens) and India Gate in New Delhi. Visit Humanyun’s Tomb, built in the 16th century and architecturally considered the forerunner of the Taj Mahal.

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way.

In fact, I am never happier than when I’m cycling, trekking or simply eating my way through a country! My heart and head regularly pull me east, notably to India but I may also be found wandering through the galleries and piazzas of Italy or daydreaming about fresh ceviche in the far west.

As a child I read voraciously so the seed of travel was planted by none other than Enid Blyton. Family holidays ran the gamut from icy dips in the early summer seas of Cornwall, to camel rides in north Africa, from Times Square to Tenerife. A GAP year upon leaving school cemented the travel bug. After graduating University and before stumbling, happily, into a career in the travel industry I spent a couple of glorious years exploring southern and east Africa, large swathes of South-east Asia, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
