Barcelona might not be the first place that springs to mind when thinking of a family city break but, with a host of fun outdoor activities being held around the city this spring, more and more families are booking cheap flights to Barcelona to enjoy a culture-packed family break.
From zoos, to parks, to historical sites, Barcelona offers a plethora of activities for families and this spring there are more events than ever to keep even the most surly teenagers or easily-distracted tots amused.
The Zoo de Barcelona is one of the biggest draws for families in the area. Famed for its educational dolphin and sea lion shows, entry to these are included in the price of admission to the zoo itself. Family tickets are also available, meaning that groups can save their Euros for an ice cream or two while enjoying the animals.
Football and Art – Barcelona Has It All
Football fans will love a trip to the Camp Nou, the stadium of FC Barcelona, which is also the largest stadium in Europe. The tour of the ground includes a trip to the museum, where the club's silverware is on show, and would-be footballers can live the dream of walking out of the players’ tunnel.
For those who would prefer to take in some art, they can combine a day soaking up the sunshine and culture at the Parc Joan Miró or the Parc Güell - parks that are dedicated to showcasing the work of Catalan sculptors Miró and Gaudí respectively.
