Explore the green avenue with DFDS
Seaside resorts and beautiful landscapes
Since the arrival of the ferry to Newhaven, a few tens of kilometers separate the cycle tourists from Brighton. One of the most famous beaches of England is there, near chic buildings reflecting the Regency era. Lovers of the coasts will be able to choose another route, to Eastbourne, with undeniable Victorian charm, which will also make them see the mythical cliffs of this part of the English coast, in the natural park of Seven Sisters. Going back to London, the bike ride continues via the Cuckoo Trail, a typical East Sussex tree-lined path leading to Heathfield. The Green Avenue then takes the path of East Grinstead, following the route of an old railway, in a rather hilly country territory.
From East Grinstead Station, Green Avenue follows the course of the former Worth Way Railway. On the way to London, the town of Reigate, with its windmills, gives this cycling hike the air of a Dutch walk ... In the area, the Paris-London bike path crosses the Gatwick international airport, before the arrival in the suburbs of the English capital. Then the ultimate stage of the trip, London reveals all its charms in a few pedal strokes. From Spitalfields shops to street food stalls in Borough Market, not to mention Tower Bridge, Westminster or Hyde Park, much of London is, thanks to Green Avenue, within reach of any motivated amateur cyclist!
