Seville is an excellent choice for a family holiday, especially when taking young children.

With beautiful weather all year-round, lots of historic and educational attractions, and a family-friendly culture, kids of all ages will have a fantastic time in this stunning city.

When to visit Seville with Kids

Choosing the right time to visit Seville with kids can make a huge difference. Seville gets extremely warm in the summer months (from May to September), which can be a little overwhelming when travelling with younger children.

We recommend getting a hotel with a pool, or checking out the water park if you do visit in the summer, and make sure to stock up on the sun cream!

Because of this extreme heat, I would recommend visiting Seville in the winter months if planning to take younger children. Visiting around Christmas or the new year is an excellent time, and they’ll especially enjoy the festivities associated with Seville at this time.

I would also recommend not visiting Seville with kids during some of the major events and festivals that Seville hosts. In particular the Semana Santa (Holy Week) celebrations and the April Fair.

Whilst they are brilliant to see, they are extremely busy, and if you want to avoid unnecessary stress, it’s best to avoid these dates when visiting with kids. For 2025, the April fair falls between the 4th and 10th April, and the Holy Week is between

Picking the right accommodation is crucial when visiting Seville with kids. Not only do you want to make sure the hotel and accommodation is child friendly, but it can also help to have a place that can entertain the kids.

Getting Around Seville with Kids

The majority of attractions and activities in Seville are centrally located, meaning that with he right hotel or accommodation you can walk or use public transport for the majority of your time.

Children under the age of 3 generally travel for free across all forms of public transport, with cheaper ticket prices for children under 16. The bus is probably the best form of transport with kids, with spaces for push-chairs (buggies) and a wide variety of stops.

If you’re planning to visit more of the south of Spain, or want to entertain the children with a trip to the beach, hiring a car may be the best option, with plenty of choice available including family sized vehicles.

Travelling to and from the airport can also be a stressful time when travelling with kids, checkout our airport travel guide to find the best mode of transport that suits your family.

Eating in Seville with Kids

Eating out with kids is very easy to do in Seville, and you’ll find that lots of young families enjoy tapas out long into the evening (the culture there can be different to other places around the world). Most neighborhoods are very safe with a very family-friendly atmosphere.

The only thing I would try and avoid is some of the very busy tapas bars, especially around the centre and other major attractions. They can be overwhelming enough for adults to order and sit-down, with people often stood up eating. Try and find a restaurant or bar with seating, and book ahead to ensure a relaxed meal.

Of course there are also plenty of ice cream places in Seville, a great way to spend time with a young family.
