Malta is the perfect place for a nice cuppa in the winter sunshine - even if it rains

Not a drop of rain for months. Many escape to Malta for some glorious winter sun and a very warm welcome.

This tiny Mediterranean isle is the perfect destination for a warming winter trip (expect a delightful 16C to 17C).

Valletta, the capital got a trendy feel with plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops.

A very British thing to do, is to visit some of the key tourist places of course, Malta does have a lot of British traditions and was part of the Empire from 1814 until ­independence in 1964.

Some of its highlights, the National Museum of Fine Arts, housed in an exuberant, late 18th century Rococo building, and the National Museum of Archaeology, in a Baroque building originally constructed for the Knights in 1571.

Another highlight is a visit on the bus to the old Maltese capital of Mdina, a walled town on a hill which has banned tourists' cars from its narrow, twisting streets and is known, rightly so, as the “silent city".

It's worth the steep walk to find the Fontanella Tea Garden, a cafe with great views and cakes of distinction.

You will quickly notice that huge churches dominate many towns.

The huge Rotunda in Mosta is famous for a “miracle" during the Axis siege of the island in the Second World War.
