Useful information about the flight from Birmingham to Barcelona

Sun-drenched Barcelona

The coastal city of Barcelona stands out for its dynamism and culturally mixed beauty, both modern and ancient, with its famous Gaudi architecture and atmospheric Gothic Quarter.

Best time to visit

Although great for visiting all year round, Barcelona's peak season is during spring and summer. If you enjoy visiting at festival and holiday times, Spain's main Christmas day is on 6th January, the Day of the Three Wise Men (Dia de los Reyes). In February, there's the week-long Carnival. The Gràcia district street party (Fiesta major de Gràcia) takes place in August. Barcelona is Catalonia's capital city and as such its official languages are Catalan and Spanish, and Catalonia's independence day (La Diada de Catalunya) takes place on 11th September.

Tips and facts before you travel

To taste some typical regional foods, try the special bread and ham (Pan Tomaca con Jamón Serrano) and the Crema Catalana dessert, the Catalan version of crème brûlée. Prices tend to be cheaper in Barcelona than in London; eating out is usually much cheaper. You'll pay about 4 or 5EUR for a beer.
Barcelona's time zone is GMT+1.
