Welcome to The Wellington Society of Madrid

Unique Unforgettable Walking Tours in Madrid and Spain

Madrid may not be the home to Jack the Ripper, but it does have its share of history, legends and tales of of a darker sort. We know where all the bodies are buried, where all the fights were fought and where history was made. We also know the best places for tapas and wine, both of which are included on our tours. Plus, when you take one of our tours, you automatically become a member of the Wellington Society of Madrid giving you access to all the associated benefits.

Since we are small operation, whether you join one of our Madrid walking tours, Hemingway tours, a museum tour, an excursion to Segovia, Toledo or an extended visit to the battlefields of the Peninsular War, your guide will always be the Society’s Chairman, historian Stephen Drake-Jones.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the Chairman if you need help deciding what tours to take, would like something tailored to your needs or just have a question. We are always happy to help.

Look around the web site. You will find a wealth of information.

We Tour, But We Never Bore


Gail and I have been talking, between ourselves and to others we meet, about our grand excursion through parts of Madrid with you last Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed your clear descriptions, including the bombing site, your laying of the wreath, the Hemingway picture in the Cerveceria Alemana, and Santa Anna, your favorite square. You took us to places we never would have seen on our own, like St. Nicholas Church. The tapas were delicious, the wine cold and good, and the conversation — because of you — lively, informed, engaging and cordial. You are, we think, a great guide, and simply a great guy. We are lucky to have been in your company.
