An enthusiastic bunch of Knights Templar School students took to the Spanish capital to feast on the city’s culture, as well as its calamari sandwiches.

During the trip the group learnt about bullfighting at the Las Ventas bullring, visited the royal palace and its armoury and managed to squeeze in plenty of shopping.

Trip leader Georgia Gibbs said: “After a very early flight we arrived in Madrid, starting with a walking tour of the city to familiarise ourselves.

“During the trip we visited the Museo del Prado, which specialises in classical art such as Goya and Velazquez.
