Barcelona Cheap Flight Deals
If you're looking for a city break that has just about everything, Barcelona is perfect. The Spanish metropolis is full of amazing things to see and do, with historical landmarks, fantastic art galleries and fascinating cultural institutions among the highlights - not to mention its stunning urban beaches and eclectic array of shops.
What's more, because flights to Barcelona usually take around two hours from London (or two hours and 20 minutes from somewhere further north, like Manchester), it's just as easy to reach the Spanish destination for a short weekend getaway as it is to jet off for an entire week.
Why choose Barcelona?
Aside from the length of the flight to Barcelona and the fact that there some great cheap offers available, there are many more reasons to visit this particular Spanish city. What's especially great about it is that it offers something for everyone, from active travellers and sun seekers to culture vultures and history enthusiasts.
Barcelona boasts a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites - including several of Antoni Gaudi's works, such as the Sagrada Familia cathedral (that has yet to be finished) and Park Guell. There are numerous art galleries showcasing a range of classic and contemporary pieces, with artists such as Miro, Tapies and Picasso among those whose works are on display.
For a break from art and culture, head to one of Barcelona's beaches - between them there is over 4.5 km of sand for you to lie back on and work on your tan. There are also some exceptional parks in the city if you want to head to a green space rather than the seaside.
It is also well worth utilizing the Barcelona hop-on hop-off city bus tour, the best way to explore the city especially if you aere short on time. There are over 45 stops and you can spend as much or as little time at places of interest.
