Magical Madrid tops the list of holidaymakers looking for a fun-packed, sunshine city break in Europe. You’ll love the beauty and vibrancy this city packs. Get ready for colourful street life, food markets, amazing shopping, spellbinding architecture, landscaped gardens, museums and galleries, restaurant-lined squares and outdoor markets. A bustling entertainment scene of flamenco tablaos, hip nightclubs and live music bars is what makes this the cosmopolitan capital of Spain. Madrid holidays are the right choice for you if you fancy a leisurely retreat basking in sunshine with plenty of culinary and nightlife options. With sizzling Spanish temperatures and the prospect of an affordable short-haul getaway, holidays in Madrid are simply irresistible.

Watch Real Madrid play

For some sporty action, catch a football match at Bernabeu Stadium, home to one of the best football teams in the world, Real Madrid. Take a tour of the stadium and check out the iconic turf, training arenas and the awards gallery. Football fans will get goose bumps being led through the dressing room and the tunnel before entering the grounds. To witness Real Madrid in action, book your tickets in advance online. Madrid is also a good place to watch Spain’s traditional dance flamenco, a highly energetic gig featuring tapping boots, catchy music and rhythmic body movements. For a lively evening of flamenco, head to Corral de la Moreria restaurant or any of the famed tablaos (Spanish for flamenco bar).

Madrid is choc-a-block with monuments, museums and landmarks, all of which show off the city’s architectural splendour. Take a stroll to Puerta de Alcala, while stopping by the Royal Palace and the Catedral de la Almudena. Check out the renowned Art Triangle, which contains three of the city’s major museums and galleries – Museo del Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza. The picturesque Casa de Campo park is another must-visit sight. The biggest park of the city is five times larger than New York’s Central Park and here you’ll find Madrid Zoo, Madrid Arena and sports facilities among its gardens. Families will love the Parque de Atracciones de Madrid – a theme park offering over 36 attractions.
