Step back in time with a 2 day cycling escape to the High Weald.

The High Weald (from the old Saxon word 'Walde' meaning forest) is a high sandstone ridge, formed millions of years ago, and one of the best surviving landscapes in Europe with its narrow, sunken lanes and steep valleys. So expect a weekend of wild and natural beauty, a fair chunk of medieval history and truly magnificent views, all just a stone's throw from London.
