Coaches to Madrid

Buses from UK cities to Madrid offer an affordable and comfortable route to the Spanish capital. There's one major bus station in Madrid - the Estacion Sur de Autobuses. It enjoys a very convenient location, just south of the city centre, and travellers can hop onto Metro services to transfer anywhere in the city. Onward travel via Renfe rail services is easy to organise, and there are plenty of accommodation options in the vicinity of the bus station.

Which is the main coach station in Madrid?

Madrid's major bus arrival point is the Estacion Sur de Autobuses (the southern bus station). The bus station isn't right at the heart of the city, but getting to attractions and accommodation in downtown neighbourhoods won't be hard. Passengers can transfer in seconds to the Metro or overground Cercanias trains via Mendez Alfaro Station, and local buses stop at the station as well.

Which bus companies offer coaches to Madrid?

Coaches from London to Madrid are always provided by Eurolines, which runs a daily service into the Estacion Sur de Autobuses. One change will normally be required en route, and this usually takes place in Paris. So city hopping trips involving the Spanish and French capitals are possible.

Why travel by coach to Madrid?

Coaches to Madrid from London take around 26-28 hours, so why use buses to make the trip? For starters, the cost of travelling by Eurolines coaches can be dramatically less than flights from Heathrow or Manchester. And buses tend to be extremely comfortable, with services like wifi. So those who need to work can often do so during their journey. Finally, transfers in Paris offer an extra dimension for tourists, opening up plenty of additional attractions.

Before you travel to Madrid by coach - good to know!

Before boarding coaches to Madrid from London, it's worth arranging a Madrid Tourist Travel Pass. These provide unlimited travel across the city's public transport network, and can be purchased for durations of 1-7 days. To get hold of one, purchase a Tarjeta Multi card at the bus station and charge it with the right pass. Aside from that, try to get off the beaten track. Catch a La Liga match at Getafe, visit the exhibitions at the Fundacion Mapfre, and wander the streets of bohemian Malasaña. It's full of great vintage clothing stores and music shops.

How to Get to Madrid by Bus

Spain's capital and a fascinating city to visit, Madrid is also easily accessible by bus. With direct trips from Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Zaragoza and many of Spain's other largest cities, you'll definitely find a trip that works within your travel itinerary. There are numerous bus companies travelling into Madrid, including Alsa, Avanza and Daibus, depending on what your city of origin is. Within the city, the most common destination point for bus trips is Menendez Alvaro, also called Estación del Sur. Located extremely close to the Atocha train station, one of the city's largest, and several metro and local bus lines, from there you can easily travel throughout the city to whatever landmarks you want to visit. One journey a day is available from London Victoria Coach Station, requiring a change at Paris. It leaves at approximately 8:00 a.m. each morning.

Madrid

Madrid has plenty to offer its visitors. It has a rich history and gorgeous architecture, but perhaps the greatest reason to visit this charming city is its artistic heritage. With collections that have been developed throughout the years by Spain's royal family, Madrid hosts excellent pieces from some of the country's greatest artists, like Goya and Picasso. Paseo del Prada, one of the city's main streets is home to three of the premier galleries in the world, the Museo del Prado, the Museo Tyssen-Bornemisza and the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the latter of which proudly boasts Picasso's famous Geurnica. On top of these cultural attractions, Madrid also features some of Europe's most revolutionary restaurants, with dishes ranging from traditional Spanish tapas to gourmet specialties. Of course, Madrid is also well known around the world for its amazing nightlife, with a bars-to-people ratio that rivals that of any city in the world!
