easyjet have good deals to barcelona on at the moment from East Midlands Airport
ryanair also are offering cheap deals to barcelona area - they fly Doncaster -Sheffield to Girona ( from where you can get a bus into barcelona centre - bookable at the airport -or opt for somewhere like callela or pineda de mar on the coast - you can book resorthoppa to these places)
Shouldn't be too difficult to get to either of these airports from your place-- doncaster does have the better flight times though
check out alpharooms or travel republic for hotels at a decent price -- the more distant your stay the cheaper it gets
if you go to the coast outside barcelona you can have a city/beach holiday in one -- depending on how long you are intending going for
Me i loved Barcelona and want to go back
If you are into Football you need to go to The stadium -- there are tours you can pay for -- not a bad price either -
plenty of nightlife down la ramblas in the centre of barcelona with the Hard Rock Cafe at the top end on Placa Catalyna
If you are staying in Barcelona look at Comercio Hotel - Alpharooms did it for us at a good price - nothing flashy but its just off la ramblas so its very central
Hope you find this useful
Let us know how it goes
Fondest memory: Everything
Such a lovely city - need to return soon to see some more
See the cathedral, especially the creation tapestry in the Old cathedral, then walk around the Paseo Arqueologico from just above the cathedral for splendid views.
Fondest memory: Gerona
The Creation Tapestry - and they are not normally my scene at all.
