School Trip to Barcelona

A school trip to Barcelona and the Costa Brava is ideal for a cultural enrichment tour or as an end-of-term treat!

Your students will fall in love with this vibrant, dynamic city. Soak up the atmosphere with a stroll along La Rambla, marvel at the beauty and complexity of the Sagrada Familia, discover more of Gaudi’s unique style at Parc Güell, and take a tour of the famous Camp Nou – home of FC Barcelona.

From your hotel base on the Costa Brava, pupils can enjoy the nearby leisure facilities, including Waterworld, ten pin bowling and mini golf. For the ultimate reward, we can also arrange a full day excursion to the Port Aventura theme park.

There are opportunities here to enjoy activities related to Spanish, art, geography, business studies, fashion and food technology, which means there's plenty of educational value to a school trip to Barcelona!
