Drenched in colonial charm and set amidst picturesque surroundings, the coastal town of Thalassery is known as the land of cricket, circus and cakes.

It is said that the British used to play a lot of cricket in Thalassery and that circus in India was born in this town. The numerous bakeries serving decadent and delicious cakes make Thalassery one of the most sought after spots to buy cakes from.


Nestled in Kannur district, this beautiful town attracts visitors with its ancient forts, quaint churches, splendid beaches and ornate temples. Popularly known as the Paris of Malabar, the town held special importance in the Malabar region during the British, French and Portuguese reigns.


Built by the British East India Company in the 18th century, the Thalassery Fort is the most-visited tourist spot that casts a spell on visitors with its unique architecture and old world charm. The grand fort is adorned with intricately carved doors, large windows and attractive murals. Located right next to the fort is the majestic, white-coloured English Church or Saint Jonh's Anglican Church, which is said to be one of the first to be built on the Malabar coast. The Muzhappilangad Beach in Thalassery is noted for being one of the largest drive-in beaches in the country and one can enjoy a car drive on the beach during sunsets, which makes for a truly blissful experience.
