London-Land’s End Cycle Route

If you enjoy traffic calmed cycling and sightseeing from your bicycle, whether on your own or with your loved ones, this guidebook is for you. It features the best cycle routes of southern England, together forming a continuous route from London to Land’s End, taking in as many famous English landmarks as possible. Choose to cycle the route in short sections or cycle the whole route in one go! What makes the guidebook unique is that it offers a full pack of route directions, high profile mapping, insider visitor information and accommodation suggestions,  all over an incredible distance. The route is via well paved paths or quiet roads only and is completely continuous; you can be an explorer too!

The guidebook provides approximately 1200 km (over 940 miles) of routes. The route connects with 60 railway stations on the way, so it is easy to start or stop cycling, wherever you are. International visitors can either fly to London and start near the Tower Bridge or use the additional links from the Dover and Harwich ferry ports. An alternative end to Plymouth makes a journey around the English Channel via France possible. You can also use our book to cycle from/to Portsmouth or Poole with help of the Sustrans Hampshire & Isle of Wight Cycle Map, another way of making the link with the Tour de Manche Routes around the English Channel. Whatever your choice is, bicycle-focused clear and concise travel information is included!

The route takes you through the heart of London, where you’ll cycle traffic free in Hyde Park and Richmond Park and on towpaths along the Thames. Heading west, you’ll also cycle on long-distance cycle paths such as the Avon & Kennet Canal route, the Bristol & Bath Railway path and the Strawberry Line. In between these routes quiet country lanes provide happy cycling via great attractions like Windsor Castle, ancient Avebury and Stonehenge, Bath, Bristol, Avon Gorge and Cheddar.

From Taunton in Somerset the route continues into England’s rugged West Country, crossing Exmoor National Park into Devon with its splendid Tarka Trail. You can then choose to cycle Devon Coast to Coast to Plymouth (from where you could cross the English Channel to France) or to continue west into Cornwall. Highlights of this route are Tintagel Castle, the beautiful Camel Trail, the famous surf beaches of Newquay and beautiful Penzance with its striking St Michaels Mount.
