Book your Barcelona to London flights and hop across the heart of western Europe to discover another great metropolis. Rich in history, packed with culture and awash with eye-opening art and architecture, there's something about the Georgian-cum-Victorian heart of London that should sit well with lovers of Catalonia's penchant for all things Baroque and Gothic. Add to that some hard-hitting bars and trendy nightlife spots, and those 30 or so daily flight connections are surely looking more inviting than ever.
There's no question about it – the best time to book cheap flights to London from Barcelona is in the first quarter of the year, before the warmth of the British summer sets in and after the New Year boom. Some of the most wallet-friendly departures of all tend to fall in April and early May, which can be a particularly nice time to visit the English capital. It's also important to bag your seats well in advance of flying, when tickets tend to be at their cheapest.
It's the El Prat Airport (BCN) that handles all Barcelona-London flights, which means getting here is nice and easy on account of the fact it's also the busiest in Catalonia. Just 7.5 miles out of the city centre, the most popular way to reach the departure halls is on the Aerobus. This leaves every 10 minutes from Plaza Catalunya – the beating heart of the town – and costs EUR 6 for the ride. Be sure to check you've got the right bus for your terminal before getting on.
It takes just over 2 hours to swap the leafy Las Ramblas for the winding Thames, and there are oodles of departure options at various times throughout the day, from early morning to late at night. Direct connections on the 730-mile trip are available from a kaleidoscope of different carriers. EasyJet, Ryanair, Vueling and Norwegian bring up the budget end of the scale – expect to pay in the region of £30.
Once those cheap flights from Barcelona to London have touched down on the tarmac, it's time to head for the city. The best way to do that is to make use of the fast and reliable rail services that link central London to the various arrival points. For Gatwick, it’s the Gatwick Express to Victoria. For Stansted, it's the Stansted Express to Liverpool Street. For Luton, you'll need to hop on National Rail services, or get the dedicated shuttle bus by Terravision for £10.
Whether you seek out world-class tapas joints by Catalan expat chefs in happening Soho, head to the Borough Market in London Bridge for an imported taste of Spain – think chorizo and rioja aplenty – or opt for English fish and chips on the Southbank before a night of craft beers in Dalston's ruin bars, you're bound to have a blast. Then there’s the world-class museums of South Kensington, the open green spaces of Hyde Park and the splendour of Buckingham Palace to name just a few top sights to see.
