Traditionally Castilian and welcome, Madrid is a city of contrasts. It is bursting with charm, from its stately centre to the more popular neighbourhoods. The wide range of leisure on offer remains vibrant all year round.

Head to the Paseo del Arte to enjoy a cultural day taking in its museums. Or tour the most luxurious shops on the famous Golden Mile. And don't forget to share a few beers and tapas in neighbourhoods like Las Letras, La Latina or Lavapiés. Or a squid sandwich in Plaza Mayor!
