Default School holidays

Hi all,

we are planning to pay a visit to Ikea in Seville on Thursday 20 April to do a big shop. I know how horrendous an experience it is trying to shop in Ikea in England during the school holidays, and was wondering how bad/busy it got in the Seville branch.

Does anyone know if the children in this area will be off school during the period 20-25 April? Also, how busy can it get?

Many thanks,

Karen

Good Luck!!!

Thanks for your replies. I must admit that I am dreading the day out at Ikea Seville, but it shouldn't be all that bad if the kids are back at school. The good thing is that were getting the trip out of the way at the beginning of a week long trip to the area, so have a good few days to get over the trauma.

Many thanks again,

Karen

Like as mentioned, go as soon as the shop or bank opens, it is definately the best time.
