Marvellous Madrid

Cosmopolitan, creative and endlessly energetic, Madrid is a capital city that oozes Spanish flair. Brimming with colour, flavour and plenty of passion, Madrid’s charm is undeniable and it won’t be long before you fall in love with the charismatic Spanish capital.

Explore streets of stunning Baroque and Medieval architecture, go shopping in the chic boutiques and don’t miss out on tucking into some tasty tapas – serving cultures vultures and foodies alike. There’s some wonderful talent on display in Madrid’s world-class art galleries as well as a myriad of landmarks to seek out and photograph throughout the city. With non-stop days and a thriving nightlife, your Madrid city breaks will continue to surprise, appease and inspire.

Outside of the city proper are a number of other attractions and destinations that can add a sense of adventure and variety to your trip to the capital. Countless UNESCO World Heritage Sites can be found within easy reach of Madrid, including the city of Alcala de Henares and the stunning palace at Aranjuez. But it is the beautiful medieval city of Segovia that attracts the most interest, boasting a world-famous Roman aqueduct.

Tapas, Culture and Nightlife

Home to stylish boutique hotels, sleek apartments and cosy guesthouses, there is a plethora of central accommodation options in which to base yourself during city breaks to Madrid. Staying near Puerta del Sol will see you in the midst of it all, with the Mercado de San Miguel, Palacio Real and the beautiful Catedral de la Almudena all within walking distance. Gran Via is also a popular spot for first time visitors to base themselves. Teeming with an array of shops, tapas bars and theatres, it’s one of Madrid’s most important streets, providing a significant flavour of Spain. It’s also close to the Egyptian temple remains of Templo de Debod and the wonderfully tranquil Plaza de España, keeping you in touching distance of engaging and inspiring attractions.

If there’s one thing Madrid city breaks can offer in spades, it is artistic flare. From the talents of locals such as Goya and Velazquez to the proudly-displayed works of Picasso, Dali and Miro in the city’s numerous galleries - it is impossible not to be caught up in the artistic vibe that flows through the city. The Museo del Prado is one of the most important museums in Madrid, while the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia hosts an incredible number of classics, including Picasso’s renowned masterpiece of Spanish history, ‘Guernica’.

There is plenty of things to do in the city as night kicks in, as the full force of Madrid’s fabulous, fun-loving personality is unleashed as the sun sets. After dining in style at one of the city’s experimental fusion restaurants, or sampling more humble portions of traditional tapas, it’s time to hit the town. Madrid’s nightlife is nothing short of legendary and you’ll find a myriad of nightlife hotspots in which to enjoy drinks and dancing. With eccentric cocktail bars, glamorous clubs and buzzing live music venues, sleeping during city breaks in Madrid is simply a waste of time for some!
