Those booking London to Barcelona flights will be swept away by this Mediterranean seaside spellbinder. If stunning art, picturesque neighbourhoods and rich culture are on your to-do list, then a visit to this quintessential Catalan city is a must. You can’t help but fall in love with the city’s sublime architecture or lose yourself down winding, shade-cooled alleys on your trip from London to Barcelona. History, charm and world-class gastronomy are all part of what makes Barcelona such a dreamy Mediterranean destination.
Barcelona is a first-class cosmopolitan city, but you don't have to spend a lot of money to enjoy the riches it has to offer. November, January and February are the cheapest months for London to Barcelona flights, especially if you book five weeks in advance. If you’re looking for the cheapest deals, try September, after the summer crowds have gone. May and June promise endless sunny days, while evenings full of fiesta time fun await those coming in July and August – but do expect to pay premium prices.
Generally, the cheapest airports to get you to the seductive streets of Barcelona are Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN). Stansted offers more options though, and getting to Stansted by car is a piece of cake. It conveniently lies just off of the M11, on Junction 8. From Greater London, you can also take the train to Stansted, after changing from the tube at Tottenham Hale or London Liverpool Street.
Most London Barcelona flights fly into El Prat (BCN), taking around two hours to cover the 700 miles to the Catalan coast. The best deals for direct flights are with Monarch, Ryanair and Swiss International Air Lines, but you can also book with Norwegian, British Airways or Iberia.
There are a number of ways to reach Barcelona’s city centre. Taxis are the most convenient, taking 20-30 minutes, but will cost you about GBP 30. The Aerobus is much cheaper, and you can catch the bus outside Terminal 2 for around GBP 4 for a single ticket. It will drop you off at either Placa Espanya or Placa de Catalunya, both in the heart of the city. For a quick and comfortable 25-minute journey, take the RENFE train, getting off at Barcelona Sants, Passeig de Gracia or Clot.
The top-drawer attractions in Barcelona are the masterpieces of Antoni Gaudi. You can't help but be blown away by the beautifully shapes of the Sagrada Familia. Park Guell, with its fantastical swoops of shape and colour, feels like a surreal fairy tale. Once you’ve feasted your eyes all of this modernista architecture, head to Barrio Gotico (or the Gothic Quarter) for a change of scenery. Stroll down its winding medieval alleys and enjoy the many tapas bars on offer. If you want a break from the city, the beach is just minutes away. Don’t forget to enjoy a tipple (or two!) at a chiringuito, or 'beach bar', while the luminous waters of the Mediterranean dance before your eyes.
