Things to do in Madrid

Now, we know beaches may not be the first thing you think of when visiting Madrid, but with just a short journey across to Valencia you can check out some stunning shorelines. Spend the day and take a picnic, venture into the Old Town and even browse the Central Market for some handmade goods. The best way to do this is to go on the high speed train and soak up all the fabulous colours of the journey from Madrid to Valencia.

How about Madrid’s most famous street? No Madrid city break is complete without it. With plenty of restaurants, bars, and high street shops everyone will have a field day. This Madrid street houses the second biggest Primark, and your other favourites like H&M and Zara! If a bit more high-end shopping takes your fancy, head over to Calle Serrano for your luxurious fashion brands such as Chanel, Gucci, and Carolina Herrera.

Finish off your day in sunny Valencia, or your shopping spree with a decadent round of tapas, because that’s also a must when in Madrid! With tapas bars on every corner and lining every street, there’s plenty to choose from. Tucking into a crispy serving of Patatas Bravas or a Spanish omelet will give you the real Madrid experience.

A city break of art and culture

Madrid is widely recognised as an art capital, home to some of Europe’s largest museums and galleries. The Golden Triangle of Madrid is a must-see for all visitors, not just art connoisseurs.

Made up of the world famous Museo del Prado, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, walking through is an experience like no other.

While out strolling on your city break in Madrid, you’ll walk past stunning monuments and buildings on either side of the street making you feel like a celebrity. Madrid’s infamous stately character comes from proud-looking historic buildings, including those in the Golden Triangle, as well as the Teatro Royale and the National Library building.

If you’re looking for a city break of art, culture and history, Madrid is the vibrant cultural capital you need.

 

Madrid by night

Whether you’re looking to experience the hustle and bustle of Madrid’s nightlife, or just a taster with a chilled evening, Madrid city breaks have both on offer.

Keep it low-key, but by no means any less stylish, by finding yourself one of Madrid’s many rooftop cocktail bars. Sit with your partner or your friends watching the sunset drop below Madrid’s stunning picturesque backdrop. With tapas bars on every corner you won’t struggle to find the ideal place to eat.

You can’t tick Madrid off the bucket list until you’ve had the full experience, so why not head to the grand theatre and catch an infamous flamenco show. The bars in Madrid don’t usually liven up until 11pm so you have plenty of time to enjoy a full evening show before heading out for more drinks.

Once 11pm strikes, Madrid really comes to life. There’s a hundred different clubs around each as good as the next for diversity and affordability, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
