Madrid, Spain’s vibrant capital, is a city that lives and breathes artistic, creative energy. Elegant buildings and leafy streets give some indication of its refined heritage and if you want to explore this side of the metropolis further there are many museums and art galleries to visit. Madrid’s cuisine is likewise steeped in tradition but with contemporary twists that make eating in the city a novel and exciting experience. Once the sun sets the locals come out to party and the streets fill with life and energy - Madrid has no shortage of cocktail bars and nightclubs. We have a range of cheap holiday packages and fun-packed holiday deals to Madrid and there’s never been a better time to visit this beautiful city.

Things to know before visiting Madrid

Madrid is one hour ahead of the UK. Spain is a member of the European Union and the currency is the euro. If you’re going on holiday to Madrid on a flight from London to Madrid or a flight from Manchester to Madrid then you will probably fly into Madrid-Barajas Airport (also known as Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas). This is the busiest airport in Spain with millions of passengers passing through every year. It is about 12 miles north-east of the city centre and there are several options linking it to downtown Madrid. You can catch an Airport Express bus – this is cheap and runs frequently, taking about 40 minutes. You can take a train on the Metro, though this may mean transferring lines a couple of times. Or, of course, you can simply take a taxi – these can be booked online in advance or you can pick up a cab from the taxi ranks outside the terminal.

What is the weather in Madrid?

Madrid sits over 600 metres above sea level in the middle of the country. It has a continental climate but this is far milder than many other continental cities. Summers are hot and sunny with average temperatures about 25 degrees Celsius and highs around 35 degrees. The air is dry which makes the heat quite agreeable and evenings are very pleasant: about 15 to 20 degrees. Rainfall is very rare in summer but in other seasons showers can occur, though rainfall, in general, is not plentiful – the surrounding landscape is semi-arid.
