Oviedo/Gijon to Leon


We are staying near LLanes (after a trip to Bilbao and Potes) but considering an overnight trip by train to Leon from Gijon/Oviedo travelling with 2 young children. My questions are:

1) Is the train journey scenic over the mountains?

2) Is there anywhere safe and secure to leave our vehicle with our luggage overnight at the station in either Oviedo or Gijon?

3) Is there anything in particular that is a must for children in Leon?

4) Is this 2 day/1 night trip worth the effort? or is there 'an equivalent' along the coast? bearing in mind we will have been walking in the picos for a few days already.

I would be grateful for any advice!

I doubt if there is an overnight train from Gijon/Oviedo to Leon as the journey is 2 to 2.5 hrs long and I cannot recall an overnight service along there.

In terms of what to do in Leon with children; you'll get a better response if you ask in that section of tripadvisor.

Thanks for your reply. We are intending to travel in the morning, stay overnight in a hotel and travel back the next day. Is the journey worth the trip?
