The Castles Route (unguided)

Reserve / Enquire

Cycle down pretty country lanes to Bodiam Castle in East Sussex, an archetypal 14th century moated castle with ruined interior - a glimpse of medieval splendour.  Stop for refreshments at the cafe and then cycle back to Kent to visit a completely different type of castle.

Sissinghurst started life as a moated manor house in the 13th century and boasts a long and illustrious history, hosting royals like Queen Mary Tudor and Queen Elizabeth I over the years, as well as being used as a war prison in the 1700s.

Today, the imposing castle is best known for its spectacular gardens, the inspired creation of 20th-century owner and poet Vita Sackville-West. Spread over 450 acres, the breathtaking parklands include colorful flower gardens, an aromatic herb garden, a bird hide, an orchard and a number of scenic walkways.

This route can be cycled either from either of hire centres - in Biddenden or Bodiam - and we can alter your route depending on which order you would like to visit the two castles.

If you only have a half day available, then you can visit one castle only.
