Based on true events, Victoria & Abdul beautifully depicts an extraordinary friendship between Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and her servant in the later years of her remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As she questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that the Queen’s inner circle attempts to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.

Northern India conjures up memorable and colourful images of turbans, saris, flavoursome curries and rickshaws. We visit the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur, home to the wonderful former Maharaja’s Palace and the splendid hilltop Amber Fort. Agra and the stunning Taj Mahal are not to be missed and fully live up to expectations. An early morning boat ride through the mist along the ghats of Varanasi is probably the most sensory intoxicating excursion in India with the sight of so much Hindu culture both fascinating and deeply moving, an experience only equalled by spotting a tiger in Ranthambore National Park.
