The Crab & Winkle Way Cycle Path, Canterbury

If you are taking your bikes with you, try to set aside some time to go to try out the Crab & Winkle Way. It is a cycle path which follows the route of the world’s first regular passenger train service. The majority of the route is off-road so no need to worry about traffic, and it leads you to the ancient woodland of The Blean, known for providing a home to the rare heath fritillary butterfly. Depending on how much time you have and your ability, you could cycle all the way to Whitstable and explore the surrounding areas whilst there. If you run out of energy fear not as you can always hop on the train back!
