The city of Barcelona, Spain is popular among tourists and travellers, particularly due to the abundance of things to do. If you are visiting with your family, children will love to take a trip to the beach or see the sharks at the Aquarium. Kids can also experience an adventure ride at Tibidabo Amusement Park. There is plenty to see for adults too, including the City History Museum of Barcelona or the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art and there are also plenty of shops, restaurants and historic sites to explore. Visitors can also enjoy the night life of Barcelona but, as with any trip abroad, it pays to be safe at all times.
What to watch out for when visiting Barcelona
There are some risks when near the sea so ensure that you see a lifeguard on duty before you go swimming. There are signs coloured green for ‘safe’, yellow for ‘take caution’ and red for ‘unsafe to swim’ so take heed of these before you get in the water. The crime rate is moderate but there are some places where thieves and criminal gangs frequent. Ensure that you do not carry a lot of expensive equipment around and take basic safety precautions when handling your wallet or cash. Always drink bottled water and specify this when you visit restaurants. The hotel staff and any staff who work for the travel company you book with have a duty of care to you throughout your trip so any accidents, injuries or illnesses incurred as a result of their negligence can be claimed for in the UK.
