The city of Gaudi, Las Ramblas and Camp Nou is virtually a rite of passage for British travellers, and airlines have met demand with a huge range of Barcelona flights from around the UK – many of them temptingly cheap.

The famous port city sits on the north-eastern corner of Spain’s Mediterranean coastline, not too far from the French border, putting this colourful city of beaches, tapas bars and architectural marvels within a couple of hours of Britain.

The key to finding cheap flights to Barcelona is to shop around, because the range of direct flights from the UK is huge. Budget airlines such as Jet2, easyJet and Vueling are all in the market, locked in battle with flag carriers like Iberia, Lufthansa and British Airways.

Long weekends are always in demand, so try a midweek trip to find cheaper Barcelona flights. Avoiding the July and August peak will help too, and the off months are in any case much quieter, particularly in the tourist hotspots around Raval and the Gothic Quarter.
