B. Hazelnut Park

A beautiful park just outside the city. Hazelnut Park attracts people from all over the country. There is a lake which offers sailing, canoeing and rowing lessons. A popular choice with school groups. Behind the lake there is a wildlife area and a classroom where adults and children can become familiar with different local insects and birds.

C. Bowden Park

This small and quiet park offers guided tours, given by an Environmental expert. Tours occur every day and are free of charge. It is situated on the river Thames and can be reached in approximately 40 minutes from the centre of the city by ferry. Inside the park, you can find the Bluebird cafeteria, the Rose shop and the Queen’s botanical garden.

D. Elizabeth Park

This peaceful park is easy to reach by public transport. It has boats to hire, a small swimming area, a roller blading park, a picnic area and a running track. This park also has one of the oldest cathedrals in Britain. There is a museum which should not be missed.

At Homewood Park, there are many walks you can take and there are three paths for cycle rides. It is just inside the city and has an area of quiet woodland which is home to rabbits, deer and other animals. There is a visitor centre where you can find information about the local animals and wildlife.

One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World – Iguazú Falls

In 2011, the Iguazú Falls became one of the new wonders of the modern world. At number 7 in the list of the seven wonders of the modern world, these falls are located between Argentina and Brazil. The falls divide the Iguacu River into the upper and lower Iguacu and it is the river that forms the boundary between Argentina and Brazil.

The climate surrounding Iguacu is subtropical. Year round, there can be abundant rain and high temperatures. The highest average temperatures can be found in January, February and December. Temperatures during that time of the year are around 33 degrees. The highest rain fall typically occurs in October with when the area receives approximately 9 inches.

The falls are so impressive that they have featured in many award-winning films. In 1979, the world famous James Bond Film, Moonraker was filmed there. Then approximately twenty years later, the falls were the backdrop of an Indiana Jones film.

Spectacular boat trips can be made from both the Argentinian and Brazilian side. In Argentina, you can expect to pay AR$100 for a short boat trip around the falls and then AR$200 for a longer boat journey. One thing for sure is that on both boat trips, you will get extremely wet!

On the Brazilian side, there is a company that offers boat trips to the base of the falls, but to get to the boat, you have to board a truck which takes you through the jungle.

You may see some interesting wildlife before reaching a motorboat which takes you on a faster, more exciting road. Again, you are guaranteed to get extremely wet. You need to be careful with mobile phones and cameras as these will get wet if you don’t protect them and keep them in a dry bag.

Once you have seen one of the new wonders of the modern world, we suggest you continue your journey and explore other parts of the country.

There is not a lot else to do in Iguacu or in the surrounding area. We suggest staying a maximum of two to three days. From Iguazú, you can go to Rio de Janeiro or to Buenos Aires. There are direct flights from the airport at the falls.
