Find a little bit of Spain in London this summer with Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla.
Yes, we’d all like to be living our best lives out on the Mediterranean right now. But while a trip to Seville might not be on the cards just yet, here are some ways you can find a little taste of España right here in London. That’s right, in celebration of Tanqueray’s Flor de Sevilla Gin – which is inspired by the bittersweet sun drenched oranges of Seville – we’ve planned the perfect choice of Spanish-inspired activities for you.
From flamenco dancing, to theatre, to all the best places to enjoy authentic tapas, we’ve lined up some sensational Spanish things to do in the city!
1. Explore some Spanish art
Start your immersion into Spanish culture by admiring the artistic creations of some talented Spanish painters. The National Gallery has a great collection of Spanish art, featuring the likes of Velasquez, Goya and Zurbarán. While the Tate Modern houses a few iconic pieces from Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. And while we’re on the subject of art, let’s not forget that your beautifully illustrated Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla bottle is a masterpiece in itself!
2. Stock up at a Spanish deli
Fill your kitchen cupboards with everything you need to host Spanish nights in complete with Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla cocktails. Stop by Brindisa in Borough Market or Balham, Garcia’s Food & Wine on Portobello Road, or Spandeli in Dalston. You’ll find all the Spanish delicacies you need from chorizo, to olives, to cheese and cured meats. Delicioso!
3. Catch a Spanish play at the theatre
The Cervantes Theatre, tucked away under the railway arches in Southwark, is a great place to catch Spanish and Latin American plays in an intimate setting. The Cervantes Theatre hosts a huge variety of Spanish and Latin American plays from classics to contemporary masterpieces, performed in both Spanish and English (so don’t panic if you’ve been neglecting your Duolingo!). With performances restarting from June, you can catch a show this summer and then indulge in a little post-theatre discussion with your friends over a tasty Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla cocktail or two!
4. Picnic in the park
Tuck into some Spanish snacks in a leafy green park for a picturesque picnic with friends. You can, of course, stock up on everything you need in the aforementioned Spanish delis. And what better than a refreshing gin and tonic to accompany your catch up. Luckily, Tanqueray has you covered with their Flor de Sevilla ready to drink cans. Convenient and totally in keeping with the Spanish theme!
5. Dine like the Spanish
We know you’re all here for the tapas recommendations and honestly, we don’t blame you. Spanish food is the perfect choice for when you’re catching up with friends and loved ones and just want to share a bit of everything. Enjoy a delicious and authentic meal at Barrafina, or try some Spanish barbecue at Parillon in Kings Cross. Visit one of the Brindisa kitchens for tapas made using Spanish produce from their aforementioned delis. Or indulge in the mouthwatering menu at Cambio de Tercio. Don’t forget to pair your dinner with a Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla cocktail for an extra nod to the flavours of Spain.
