I can't answer how Oviedo fits into a weekend trip from London, but I can tell you if you like the lush green of the U.K. this is what you will find in Oviedo. It's billed at Spain as a natural paradise, but I think they, the Asturians, have done a good job of keeping a low profile and attracting more Spanishs than internationals. Within a few hours you can be at the Bay of Biscay (Mar Cantabrico) or on one of the peaks of the Picos de Europa.

You can see centuries old Romanique churches plus a not-as-old cathedral. You can drink the local brew, fermented apple cider, serving in an asuming and unique...Pouring holding bottle over your head. You have to try it or at least just see it. The food is delicious and hearty, and the people are friendly. Who could ask for more?

Easyjet flies in and out, but it's a 30 minute trip from the airport to downtown Oviedo.

Oviedo is a fantastic city. Extremely cultural, with lots to see. The old part of town is where the night life and most restaurants are. A gastronomical feast!!
