Ultimate UK Coast to Coast
This cycling holiday has some great riding, the route taking you through an amazing variety of landscapes, from the marshlands of the Norfolk Broads to the beautiful Welsh hills. For those who decide to do the full trip there is yet more sensational scenery through Ireland. There are plenty of refreshments stops along the way too, with some lovely old historic pubs serving real ales and good food.
This is our coast to coast route of approximately 360 miles, that crosses the UK at its widest point. Starting on the coast of Norfolk the route takes you across East Anglia and through the heart of central England. After crossing the River Severn near Worcester, the route continues through the beautiful Shropshire hills and across the spectacular Welsh mountains to finally end at the small settlement of St David’s in Pembrokeshire.
Roads & Terrain: The route follows minor paved roads for most of the way, although there are a few sections on main roads. Major conurbations are avoided but the route does pass through some medium sized towns. Traffic is generally light but some sections through the central part of England can be moderately busy. The terrain is quite varied. The first third is gently undulating, it becomes increasingly hilly as you cross England, finishing with a few tough climbs in Wales.
