Murcia may not be as famous as other corners of southern Spain, but the historical city, teeming with university students and sightseers, is still a popular spot for British travellers. Finding a flight to Murcia from the UK is easy – there are direct flights from 14 different airports around the country, including services from a variety of low-cost airlines.
Fly to the town, which is located in a region of the same name and just a short distance inland from Cartagena and Alicante, to experience Spanish culture and cuisine without the crowds of the Costas.
Unlike many Spanish cities, Murcia’s peak season is not actually summer – it’s busier in spring and autumn during festivals. Visit the cheery university town in July and August, when temperatures soar and tourists flock to the coast, to grab a cheaper package trip. The usual rules for finding cheap flights apply, and if you’re just hitting the town you can cut costs further by taking only hand luggage.
Murcia is reached almost exclusively by budget airlines flying from Europe, which means that low-cost operators such as Ryanair, TUI, easyJet, Jet2 and Norwegian all offer cheap routes to the region.
