British Connection

Sunday Lunch

Whilst many tourists come to Spain for the tapas, tinto de verano, chorizo, gambas al ajillo and the never-ending supply of fish and seafood, others do not have the palate for pescado. It is also not uncommon for an expat living in Andalucía to simply have a hankering for a taste of home, and especially during the cooler winter months, there is nothing better than a traditional English Sunday roast.

Full English Breakfast

There is no reason why, when you're on holiday, you shouldn´t enjoy the same pleasures as at the weekend at home - aside from a cloudless sky and brilliant sunshine of course. On a Sunday morning, or any day for that matter, you can wake up with a craving for a full English breakfast - especially if you've had a big night out; a full English can seem like the only cure.

British and English Butchers in Andalucia

We are well aware of the wealth of local Spanish delights on offer in Andalucía: solomillo, presa iberica, chorizo, Serrano ham... the list is endless. But sometimes you just fancy a tender juicy steak, or a succulent burger on the barbeque.

Fish and Chips

Even though Andalucia has a vast and rich gastronomic offering, some times living in Andalucia, or coming here on holiday, expats and visitors crave the home comforts such as ye olde fish’n’chips. The coastal areas of southern Spain, in particular the Costa del Sol, has numerous establishments offering everything from cod and chips, haddock and chips, scampi and chips, and fish cakes, to burgers.

Indian Restaurants

What many British expats miss most about living in Andalucia is a good curry. But don’t worry – you can find plenty of Indian restaurants on the Costa del Sol. So if you need a little more heat than your Andalucian gambas pil-pil, then take a trip to one of the curry houses along Andalucia’s coast, and beyond.

British Grocers and Supermarkets

You can find a number of British grocers on the Costa del Sol and in Gibraltar, to satisfy that hankering for Branston Pickle, Jammy Dodgers, or crumpets. There are five branches of Iceland (referred to as Overseas): in Puerto Banus - Centro Comercial La Alzambra opposite Puerto Banus, in Mijas - Parque Empresarial Miramar, in Pueblo Nuevo just opposite Sotogrande, plus smaller 'express' stores in Guadalmina and Calahonda.

Jerez de la Frontera - Fascinating Fact 3

Fortified wines were first exported to England from Jerez as long ago as the 14th century; some British Catholics fled here in the 16th century and started up as wine-traders. Later, in the 17th century, others opened their own bodegas (Garvey, Duff-Gordon, Wisdom & Warter).

Operation Mincemeat

A grave in the main Huelva cemetery holds the body of a man who changed the course of the Second World War. The strange thing is, his identity is uncertain.

Muelle de Tharsis

Muelle de Tharsis is a dock showing a good example of the design and technology of the nineteenth century European avant-garde in terms of civil engineering and constituting a specialized and unique element within the port.
