GPS Cycle and Walking Routes


Ashford to Rochester

31 miles (50 km)

This super ride follows National Cycle route 17 and sections of the North Downs Way and the Pilgrim's Way. There are several off road sections along these two trails making for a largely traffic free ride through the beautiful Kent countryside.
The route starts off near Ashford train station and follows the River Great Stour towards Kennington. You then head into the fabulous North Downs countryside, passing Eastwell Park - a former royal residence where the original gatehouse of Eastwell Towers is a popular photo shot. You then head through Westwell downs on your way to Charing where you will find the interesting Archbishop's Palace, said to contain the stone on which John the Baptist was beheaded.
The route continues through Harrietsham and Detling, before heading into Rochester where you finish near the iconic castle by the River Medway.
