Everywhere on the surface of the planet averages 12 hours daylight and 12 hours dark per day over the course of a year. This ranges from extremes like the two poles that effectively have two "days" lasting six months each, to the equator where daylight lasts for very close to 12 hours each and every day.

So you can easily work out daylight hours relative to you, accepting that on the dates of the equinocti (about 21st-23rd March and September) everywhere gets 12 hours. Nearer the pole means longer summer days than you, nearer the equator means longer winter days than you, so whilst Barcelona has less daylight between c22nd March and 22nd September than London, it has more between 22nd September and 22nd March. The differences are of course most exaggerated at the solstices, around 22nd June and 22nd December.

Hope this helps.
