Pinkies up, ladies!

This isn't your typical, wild 'n out-style hen party activity. A Madrid Day at the Races is Spain's answer for Cheltenham. It's the perfect opportunity to don those posh frocks and fabulous fascinators. If you're organising a hen weekend for a girl who loves the best of everything, a day at La Zarzuela racecourse will be right up her alley!

Located next to the verdant Monte de El Pardo Forest, the La Zarzuela racecourse boasts a flat grass track, fantastic viewing, betting, eating and drinking facilities. You know the drill, girls! Place your bets, quaff bubbly and toast the bride to be as you cheer your thoroughbred past the finish post. Don't worry if you've never been to a horse race, we've got your back.

Run, baby run!

A friendly driver will arrive at your accommodation and whisk your hen party off to the venue, where a horse racing expert will guide your bride tribe through the Spanish betting system. Learn a bit of the country's horse racing lingo and get invaluable tips on backing everything from outsiders to favourites. Hey! A bit of help never hurts, right?

Spend your hen weekend afternoon's wisely, do something other than see the inside of the city's cocktail bars! With a Day at the Races, you can go home saying you learned a little something on your hen do. All while participating in one of the most exciting sporting and social events in the Madrid calendar.
