Spanish City Breaks

A Spanish City Break Guide

Just a couple of hours flight from the UK, plenty of year round sunshine plus a heap of culture, a city break in Spain has become a popular choice for Brits. From exploring the capital, Madrid, with the endless museums and sights, to the beach cities of Barcelona and Alicante, Spanish cities are always on the list of places to visit

Getting to Spain

Low cost airlines have made flights to Spain incredibly affordable, especially if you're travelling mid-week or outside of school holidays. Flight depart from across the UK, meaning you've got plenty of options no matter where you live. The popular city of Barcelona has heaps of flights a day from the UK and the likes of Ryanair has helped open up low cost routes to lesser know Spanish destinations.

Which Spanish City Break For You

This all depends on what you want from your city break. Spain has a wealth of culture, so no matter where you go, there will always be a range of museums and attractions to keep you busy. To enjoy the Spanish sunshine, head to the coastal cities for some much needed beach time. Barcelona, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Alicante are all great for this.

Alternatively you could hire a car and head to some of Spain's quieter cities. Northern Spain features places like Bilbao, Santander and Valladolid which offer a less touristy option for visitors.

How To Book A Spanish City Break

Booking your flight and hotel together can often save you money, however, it's also worth checking out booking them separately, especially if you want to enjoy a twin-centre holiday like Barcelona and Sitges. Check you flights with Skyscanner and they can show you the best options on a variety of dates, so if you can be flexible on when you travel, you could save £££s.
