About Barcelona

This seaside city combines the best of a beach holiday with a city escape. Barcelona is littered with museums, eateries and stunning architecture. You can amble along the beach in the morning and then stroll into the city for a tapas lunch and a wander around the winding lanes and streets in the afternoon. You’ll find the famous architect Antoni Gaudi’s work dotted all around the city, and it’s really worth seeing the impressive Sagrada Familia and Park Güell if you can. If you want to get away from the heaving city, then head to the gardens of Montjuïc. With museums, botanical gardens and an immense view of the city, it’s a perfect spot to relax.

In the evening embrace the local lifestyle and head out for a late dinner. If you fancy an after-dinner drink, the Barcelona nightlife doesn’t disappoint; for something special, go to Mirablau, halfway up the Tibidado Mountain, where you can look out over the city and then head downstairs to the dancefloor.

When To Go

Barcelona is a year round destination. To avoid the throngs of tourists and make sure you can get a quiet patch of the beach to yourself, travel around mid-June or September as August is peak summer season. Towards the winter months the city cools down but tends to remain sunny. If you want to miss out on the thunderstorms avoid April, May October and November.

    Head over to the Zoo de Barcelona. With over 400 species of animals, and many scattered picnic areas, this is a great day trip. Book a pony ride, or wander over to the petting zoo. If you’d prefer to take a look at the underwater life, visit one of Europe’s largest aquariums and walk through the 80m shark tunnel.
  • Stroll along La Rambla
    Barcelona’s main boulevard, La Rambla is always packed with tourists but it’s a Barcelona must-see. 1km long, street performers span the length of the boulevard and you’ll pass some of the city’s most beautiful historical buildings. Walking along La Rambla, you’ll really get a feel for the lively Barcelona atmosphere.
  • Take in the sea air in Port Olímpic
    A short journey from Barcelona city centre, Port Olímpic’s busy marina is a lovely seaside retreat for those wanting to escape from the city for a morning. Built to hold the Olympic sailing events, there are many seafood restaurants dotted along the waterfront.
  • Visit La Sangrada Familia
    This magnificent UNESCO-listed cathedral, designed by Antoni Gaudi, is one of Barcelona’s treasures. After taking a look around, make sure you visit the cathedral’s museum. If you want a view of the city, walk up to the top of one of the magnificent towers.
