In order to send money from Spain to England, conduct a wire transfer through your bank. A wire transfer allows you to transfer money from one bank account to another. As opposed to international money transfer services, you do not need to register for sending money through your own bank. The process is pretty simple, and you only need information about the recipient's bank for making the transfer.

Ask the recipient for his bank details. The information you require to process a wire transfer includes name of the bank, address of the bank branch, Bank Identifier Code (BIC), and International Bank Account number (IBAN). The recipient can ask the bank for his BIC and IBAN if he isn't already aware of them, but these codes are usually found on the bottom of the bank statement.
Make sure that the amount you want to transfer to the UK is already available in your own bank account. You can confirm this from an ATM machine.
Visit your bank and tell them that you want to conduct an international wire transfer to the UK. The bank will give you a form to fill out, which will ask for the recipient's personal and bank details that you collected in Step 1 and Step 2. The form will also ask for your own personal and bank information. The bank will tell you how much it will charge you for the service and this fee is deducted from your bank account.
Take the receipt of the transfer from the bank and ask them the number of days it will take for the funds to reach the recipient's bank account in England. It usually takes up to two weeks.
Contact the recipient and tell him that the money has been transferred. Ask him to check his account from time to time and inform you on arrival of the funds.
