    Default Going to Barcelona and London in April

    I'm going to fly to London to see my gf who is studying abroad there in the Kensington area.
    I am going to be in London most of the time but flying to Barcelona on one of the weekends.
    Do you guys have any suggestions on what to do in those 2 countries?
    London we have a few things in mind but Barcelona we have no idea!

    I definitely am going to try to catch a soccer game either in London or Barcelona. But any suggestion would help!

    In Barcelona you can visit some of Gaudi's creations such as the Sagrada Familia Church and Casa Mila other than that the usual shopping on Las Ramblas there is always the beach and sightseeing of Gothic Center of Barcelona. When I was there I was fortunate enough to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art where I snagged some posters of famous Picasso paintings. I almost forget to tell you to visit Gaudi's park I forgot the name of it but ask your hotel i'm sure they'll be able to tell you the name and directions to the park. Besides all the tourist stuff go to a peep show on the La Ramblas and drinks tons of tinto de verano

    Things you must do
    1. Watch a football game in the Nou Camp Stadion
    2. Visit the Picasso Museum
    3. Gaudi stuff you must see.
    *Casa Battló (Paseo de Gracia)
    *Casa Milá / La Pedrera (Provenca)
    *Sagrada Familia (Eixample-area, Metro: Sagrada Familia)
    *Parc Guell (Metro Vallcarca

    Dont forget to eat Paella and drink a bottle of Cava with your girl its Spanish Champagne

    Some good hotels would be Juan Carlos, the Arts or Hotel Casa Fuster all 3 are very nice

    Some good restaurants are Via Veneto, Botafumeiro and Caig All offering Spanish cuisine

    for shopping I would say Paseo de Gracia, El Born

    wow thanks guys for your suggestions!
    I heard its hard to find good Spanish food so it helps to know good restaurants.

    I don't think I'll be picking up girls with my girl with me...
    Were going to be staying at Sitges right by the beach.

    I would've suggested seeing a football game just as Yves did but I was in Madrid for the World Cup and in the main square of the city the game was broadcasted on this huge projector. It was an experience i'd never forget in my life 5,000 Spaniards screaming and chanting for their team and 20 French men who left in an ambulance after Spain won. Sorry for the off topic post but do try to catch a football game its sure to be an unforgettable experience. Ooh idk if you're a bigger fella but Corte Ingles carries larger sized Lacoste wear that you cannot get in the U.S

    +1, but don't go to the contemporary art museum, my entire group (even the people who were adamant about going in the first place) thought that for the most part it was disappointing and they could have created it all themselves in their basement with minimal artistic vision. By contrast the museum in Madrid is certainly worth seeing.
