The Madrid area guide

Welcome to Madrid, the capital of Spain, one of the world’s major cities, and one of the greatest places to visit in Spain. The city plays host to 2 internationally recognised football teams, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid, home to the Spanish monarch, King Felipe VI and is proven to be one of the main financial hubs in the EU. Living is of a high standard and as of 2016, was ranked 14th in Monocle’s most liveable cities annual survey, the highest ranked city in Spain.

Things to do

You will find that there is a huge selection of things to do in Madrid, thanks in part to its large size. To get a view over the city, check out the newly reopened Faro de Moncloa viewing platform. From there, you can pick out a theme park to visit the next day – Warner Theme Park Madrid, Casa de Campo Amusement Park and Aquópolis Villanueva de la Cañada are firm favourites. The Aquópolis is the biggest water park in Europe, so pack your swimsuit! For those children that are a bit younger, you should take your family to see the Puppet Theatre in the appropriately tranquil “El Retiro” Park.

If it is animals that you are seeking, go visit the Zoo Aquarium and Faunia – the latter of which covers around 14 square hectares, providing its animals with unique ecosystems like the jungle, African forests and even the Poles! Other activities include the Madrid Bus Tour which takes you around Madrid in an open top bus, from 21€ for an adult to 53€ for a family. The Madrid Card can also get you discounts into Madrid’s top museums – the Prado, Reina Sofía, Thyssen-Bornemisza, Royal Palace, Tour of the Bernabéu and the Wax Museum for around 47€ per adult. A bargain if you ask us!

Places to eat

Madrid has a wealth of fantastic places to eat. For tapas, we suggest Casa Labra, famed for its fish styips and croquettes, or the Bodega de la Ardoa, with it’s signature dish of friend pig’s ear.

Of course, if you’re a bit more of a foodie, you might want to visit one of the Michelin-Starred restaurants in the city, like DiverXO, Santcelona, or La Terraza. Maybe you like your food with a side of history though. Venues like Ancaino Rey de los Vinos have been around for over a century, and when a restaurant lasts that long, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Shopping

As Madrid is a global city, you are able to find whatever you need here in terms of shopping. For the latest trends, take a look at Chueca and Fuencarral.

More interested in fashion, jewellery and the latest technology? Gran Vía is perfect for you. Barrio de Salamanca is the premier high end place to shop – and in contrast for the hagglers out there, we suggest you head to El Rastro for a bargain. Similarly, if you want to get a taste for the local markets, Chamartín Market is your best bet, stocked up with all sorts of wares, from food to clothes to home decorations. Other than that, the central square of Madrid and the surrounding streets are anything if lacking in shopping.

Getting there and around

When flying into Madrid you have 2 options, either go for Cuatro Vientos or Madrid-Barajas Airport - both of which have inter-city bus links and are on the Madrid Metro lines (Cuatro Vientes and Terminal stops for Madrid-Barajas). Aside from the underground you could rent a car, or take advantage of the bus links that get you around Madrid. As it is a buzzing metropolis, we would suggest that you actually avoid the roads if you don’t want to be in traffic though! This is, of course, dependent on where you are staying, and if you are outside the main city centre, then a car rental may make more sense.

There are also multiple bicycle rentals in Madrid if you prefer a 2-wheeled experience through the streets of Madrid, including the eco-friendly BiciMAD – a collection of fully electrical bicycles that cost 2€ an hour.
