We’re due to go to Barcelona for 4 nights and have been looking into pre booking things to do. Is the GoCity pass worth it? Anybody got any top tips or recommendations for what to do with three children age 8-13? Thanks!

My DD enjoyed the Science Museum, it was recommended here on MN

It's probably about half-way to the Tibidabo as well, if you want to go to that. We didn't, and if you walk to the Science Museum cut through the hospital! It's very hilly! We had tickets for the metro system, could have got a bus there though. We spent a morning there, the museum had English tags on the exhibits IIRC and the rainforest was nice.

DD and I went when she was 14.

The Magic Fountains are amazing, albeit very busy but so worth it. Park Guell is also gorgeous.

Avoid eating on Las Ramblas...total rip off.

Girona is lovely if you want a more chilled day out and about half an hour from Barcelona by train.

Don't do what I did and try cram a 4 day trip with everything you could ever wish to do in Barcelona. I was walking like a little old lady by the time we got back to Gatwick!

Parc Guell. The Zoo. The cable car over the harbour. The magic fountain. The roof at the Casa Mila (La Pedrera) is fabulous.
