Every year hundreds of thousands of Brits choose a Spanish holiday. They do so for several reasons.
Without a doubt, the primary reason is the weather. Whilst the weather in northern Spain is not very different from that found in the UK, in the South you are practically guaranteed sunshine.
For residents of the UK being able to get one or two weeks of wall-to-wall sunshine really appeals. Even in the winter, the weather is quite good. It may rain, but usually only does so for a couple of hours during one or two days of your stay. Therefore, Spain makes the perfect getaway for Brits who are fed up with the cold and rain in the UK.
