Equity School travel to Platja d'Aro

School trips to Platja d'Aro

Safe, inspiring and scenic, Platja d'Aro occupies an enviable location on Spain's Costa Brava coastline, within easy reach of airports, training sites and fixtures.

Students will appreciate the close proximity to Barcelona (a 90 minute drive), where Spain's Olympic stadium can be experienced. Staff can relax in this safe and welcoming resort, where amenities and Blue Flag beaches are conveniently located within walking distance of the hotel.

Free-time in Platja d’Aro is taken care of, with superb shopping and entertainment opportunities in Platja d'Aro. A wide choice of sports and cultural excursions is also on offer. Evening entertainment is on hand at the disco, karaoke bar and Magic Park amusement centre, or the bowling alley is just a five minute drive away.

With its Mediterranean climate, Platja d'Aro is a year-round destination; we suggest visiting in May Half Term or at Easter, when the weather is warm and there is a large choice of teams to play. For a quieter stay with milder weather, October and February half terms are also recommended.

Your students can embrace the Catalan culture, medieval architecture and an inspiring coastal location, Platja d'Aro communicates a natural link between sports and other curriculum areas, including languages, history, art and geography.

I would just like to say a huge thank you to all those involved from Equity. The students had a fantastic time and for the first trip I have organised you have all been amazing in supporting me and answering all my questions and requests leading up to and on the trip.

- Mr Marker, All Hallows Catholic School

Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família, Antoní Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece, is one of Barcelona's most popular tourist attractions and important landmarks. You can visit the crypt were Gaudí is buried as well as the transept and central nave with its giant, tree-like pillars and spectacular vaulting. An elevator and a long walk will lead you to the top of a tower with magnificent views over Barcelona.


Several thousand years ago, Iberic Celts settled on the Montjuïc, a 213 meter high hill southeast of Barcelona's current city centre. It features a large number of attractions including the Spanish Village, the Magic Fountain and MNAC, one of the city's most important museums.

Parc Guell

Located in the city of Barcelona, the Park Guell is one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Its creator Antoní Gaudí added his modernist works and influence to create a spectacular attraction, which inspires all who visit.


A beautiful medieval city, it was once the capital of Catalunya before making way for Barcelona. Highlights include the Jewish Quarter, the Cathedral and the twice-weekly market with typical Spanish produce.

Figueres - Museu Dalí

Described as "the world's largest Surrealist object", the museum showcases all the various aspects of Dalí's art. It includes some of the painter's greatest masterpieces as well as pieces which range from his first artistic creations through to his last works.
