Valladolid is a large industrial city to the northwest of Madrid. It is one of the key industrial cities in Castile-Leon in Spain. Although the city itself doesn’t particularly focus on tourism as much as it does industry, it is still a great Spanish city break to take with plenty of things to do and see in Valladolid’s city centre.
Low-cost holidays to Valladolid are very readily available and the region can be reached from a few UK airports. The city of Valladolid has its own international airport with the rest of the city and metropolitan area just a short journey away from there. However, direct flights from the UK are limited so you might have to get a connecting flight in. Make sure you check the CheekyTrip comparison site for more affordable holidays to incredible Spanish cities like this one. Direct flights to Valladolid are usually around 3 hours long, and longer if you need to change somewhere.
Valladolid is a great all-year-round destination with something unique to do in each season of the year. The most popular time to visit the city is during the warmer months - from May until October - as this is when there is the most activity in and around Valladolid. However, it is worth mentioning that the summer can be very hot, which isn’t ideal for seeing all of the city’s sights. Valladolid in winter is particularly enjoyable with all of the season’s festivities happening all over the region.
One of the main attractions to the city is its International Film Festival. The movies shown are often quite niche and cultural-based, so it is unlikely that you will have seen them anywhere else! If you happen to visit the city in November, you can take part in the exciting International Tapas Competition. During this week, over 40 tapas bars of the city offer tapas to the general public, hoping to claim first place in this prestigious competition in the world of tapas. Other notable activities in the city include football matches, museums, churches and scenic parks.
Valladolid has a solid selection of hotels, although not the same level of variety as some of the other bigger Spanish cities. The vast majority are comfortable 2- or 3-star hotels with all of the standard amenities that you would expect and in a convenient location. Eating out in the city is also a great experience, with suckling lamb and suckling pig being two of the most traditional dishes in the Castile-Leon region.
