Attractions near Hotel British
As the capital of Malta, the charming historical fortress city of Valletta is a treasure trove of cultural sights and attractions waiting to be discovered. 'Il Belt' as it's known locally is a city 'built by gentlemen for gentlemen', where you can spend days marvelling at some of Europe's best churches, palaces and art works, as you wander the narrow streets lined with inviting cafes and quaint shops.
At the top of your list should sit St Johns co-cathedral built in 1573. Malta's most impressive church delights visitors and worshippers with its breath-taking Maltese-Baroque interiors and decorative marble floors. Next head to the 16th-century Grand Master's Palace, which currently houses the government and the President of Malta. The lavish interiors, frescoes and armory offer visitors a fascinating glimpse into Maltese history and culture.
Mediterranean romance at Spinola Bay
If your idea of a perfect Mediterranean holiday involves dining on fresh, sumptuous seafood overlooking a historic bay filled with traditional fishing boats, then don't miss Spinola Bay. Part of the popular town of St Julian's, this pretty cove is surrounded by waterfront restaurants, cafes and bars where you can indulge in fresh-off-the-boat seafood while enjoying the ocean vista of brightly coloured wooden fishing boats bobbing in the bay. If you're up for some gentle exercise to walk off the delicious Mediterranean cuisine, take a gentle stroll along the promenade and revel in the laid-back holiday atmosphere.
