Book flights to Barcelona

Barcelona – a seaside city that has everything from iconic architecture to a rich Catalonian culture and an incredible culinary scene. But there’s always something more to discover in this cultural capital that you’ll need to visit more than once to experience its hidden tapas bars, charming old-town neighbourhoods and unique art galleries.

British Airways flies direct to Barcelona El-Plat airport, only a short drive from the city centre. The best thing about Barcelona? You get the best of both worlds when you book a holiday – a city break and a seaside escape all in one. Visit Antoni Gaudi’s iconic church La Sagrada Familia or explore the winding roads of the Gothic Quarter after taking a walk on the Port Vell harbour. And when you’re done with the sights of the city, take a trip to Montserrat, a mountaintop monastery 40km north of Barcelona, with breathtaking views. Book your flights to Barcelona now.

Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces are a must, from the iconic Sagrada Familia to the Casa Battlo. Wandering the Gothic Quarter’s medieval streets lined with bars and restaurants will give you a taste of Catalan nightlife.

The buzzing Mercat de la Boqueria is great for food lovers while art aficionados are spoilt for choice with the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) and Picasso Museum to name but a few.

FC Barcelona’s immortal Camp Nou stadium tour is a great family-friendly experience, as is the eternal buzz of the city’s famous La Rambla. And when you want to sunbathe, head for Barcelona’s fabulous beaches.
