There are no longer any direct flights from the UK operating to Valladolid Airport. Your best bet would be to fly into Madrid Bajaras Airport and get either a bus or train from there.
The airports and airlines which do fly in and out of Valladolid are Ryanair to Barcelona el Prat, Lanzarote and Malaga and Vueling to Barcelona.
Valladolid stands on the River Pisuerga with a Renaisssance old quarter with attractive houses, palaces, churches and a fabulous unfinished Cathedral.
Because it is a young university city it hosts hosting events including Seminci, International Film Week.
The cities which surround Valladolid include Burgos, Avila, Segovia, Leon, Zamora and Salamanca. All are within a two hour car journey and offer a rich mixture of styles from Baroque, Renaissance, Romanesque and earlier periods. There is an amazing wealth of churches, monasteries, universities, castles, palaces, beautiful squares, Roman bridges and a unique aqueduct in Segovia. The smaller towns and villages near to Valladolid each have something unique to offer with Fuensaldaña, La Seca and Cigales in the wine growing areas being good places to purchase some fine red and white wines.
The surrounding towns and villages are full of castles surrounded by moats or set high on ridges and hills dominating the landscape, acting as a constant reminder why the region is called Castilla.
