Barcelona - The Spanish are a child friendly nation and are happy to let the little rascals stay up late into the warm evenings, welcoming rather than tolerating them. Spain's second city, 2hrs 10 mins by air from London. Go to Barcelona Zoo and see baby Gorillas. There are day camps for children run by the biologists from the zoo's education department. Then visit the 100 year old Parc D'Atraccions theme park. Take the kids to the beach for cheap fun and for a stroll along the Ramblas. Go for dinner at a Tapas Bar to try out Spanish food.
