Halsbury Sticker

Cosmopolitan and bohemian, Barcelona is a fantastic destination for your fashion school trip!

Visit design schools and fashion outlets or take a workshop and learn the skill of a professional make-up artist, all while taking in the many beautiful sights the city has to offer.

Many groups stay at one of the nearby coastal resorts, such as Calella, Lloret de Mar, Blanes and Tossa de Mar. While staying here, why not spend a day out at Port Aventura or Waterworld? You may also like to consider joining forces with another department at school, to turn this into a cross-curricular school trip. Barcelona offers options for a number of subjects, including business studies, art, geography, food technology and Spanish.
