Travel Information – Distance: 1397 miles
Erm, really? OK then, if you're doing this 1,400-mile journey by car, this is how you'll want to go about it...
We don't have the time, energy or space to take you through the English leg of the trip in full. The crucial thing to remember is you'll be going to Dover - either for the Channel Tunnel or a ferry over to Calais.
Upon reaching the continent, make your way from Calais via the westbound A16 - and be aware that it may well be a toll road too. You'll be following the A16 for around 63 miles - and also be aware they use kilometres over there.
At Exit 23, come off the A16 and take the E402, taking you in the direction of the A28, Le Havre and Rouen. The toll plaza will be on this short stretch of road. After getting past it, take the A28 towards Le Havre.
You want to remain on the A28 for about 61 miles, continuing onto the N28 (E402) near Isneauville. After 5.5 miles more, you'll want to keep going onto Pont Mathilde (D6028) across the Seine and through onto Boulevard de l'Europe.
As you make your way through the southside of Rouen, you want to make sure you end up on the N338 and then, five miles down the road, onto the N138 for 4.1 miles. After this, you are to merge onto the A13 for another seven miles.
Exit the A13 to join the A28/E402 towards Bordeaux and be sure to settle in - it's 108 miles on this stretch. Once that's done, take the exit for the A11 (E50) towards Paris and Le Mans, then the A28 (E502) exit for Orleans and head on still for 53 miles.
At the junction with the A10 (E5), join the Bordeaux-bound carriageway for 215 miles.
Take exit 1 for the N230 towards Toulouse, before keeping left after crossing the Garonne to continue onto the A630. After about six miles, keep right at the fork to take the A63 and you'll be remaining on this road to take you into Spain.
Once across the border, take AP-8 and follow the signs for AP-1/Bilbao/Vitoria and the rest. It'll be around 35 miles before you get to exit 69, where you'll be taking AP-1 towards Bergara and Vitoria.
At exit 101, merge onto the AP-1 towards the A-1/Burgos. Take the exit after 2.5 miles for the AP-1, and then take exit 328 after another 15 miles for the AP-1 - still towards Burgos.
You'll reach a toll plaza after 51 miles, where you'll have to continue on to the A-1 at the other side. Four miles down the road, you'll be keeping right for the BU-30 and then joining the A-62 towards Valladolid after 2.6 miles.
The Salamanca/A62 exit will be 89 miles down the road; at this point, take the exit and merge onto the A-6/A-62 for nearly 57 miles.
At exit 244, head towards the A-50/A-66 - but keep right to stay on the N-620. Then, continue onto exit 244B and take the first exit at the roundabout for the A-62/A-66 towards Madrid. It will be 166 miles from this point.
Use the exit for the A-5/A-66 towards Sevilla and keep going for 3.1 miles, before taking exit 343 for the A-66. From here, it'll be another 114 miles until you reach the SE-30.
After six-and-a-half miles on the SE-30, exit 6B will take you onto Calle Gral. Merry/A-376 towards Utrera. Follow the A-376 for 0.7 miles, before taking the exit for Guardia Civil/Hipodromo. Aim for the roundabout and take the second exit, with the venue on the right.
There's a car park at the venue, but we can't tell you if you're allowed to use it. They'll probably be surprised you turned up in the first place.
We're not too sure that you'll be able to make this trip by rail. The idea is that you travel from London to Paris, Paris to Madrid and Madrid to Sevilla, but Voyages-SNCF is telling us the middle leg isn't an option. Maybe you'll have better luck.
And there's always the plane...
