Colonial past meets metropolitan present

Visit Kolkata and you’ll discover a city of remarkable juxtapositions. From the ashes of old Calcutta’s colonial past has risen what is now India's second largest city and the country’s intellectual and cultural capital.

Nowadays, you'll find culture and colour rebounding from crumbling colonial walls and vibrant new suburbs vying for attention with colonial-era architecture. More accessible than some of India's other great metropolises, friendly Kolkata embraces travellers who are flooding back to enjoy this photogenic city and its many delights, including its mild, fruity Bengali cuisine and some of India's finest golf courses.

With our luxury Kolkata holidays, we’ll help you uncover a wealth of treasures; from the gleaming mass of white marble that is the Victoria Memorial, to the resplendent, if somewhat dilapidated, Marble Palace. No trip here is complete without a visit to Kalighat Kali Temple, the city's holiest Hindu site and the origin of the city’s name. And for the perfect holiday memory? We suggest a sunset Kolkata cruise down the Ganges; there really is no better way to see this vibrant city and all its wonderful contradictions.
