Felbridge naar Whitstable
Seven Sisters (route point 17)
From the Crown Plaza hotel we leave in a southerly direction. We drive through beautiful hilly landscapes with beautiful winding roads. After about half an hour's drive to Sheffield Park, this is an informal landscaped garden five miles east of Haywards Heath, in East Sussex. It was originally laid out in the 18th century by Capability Brown and further developed in the early 20th century by the then owner, Arthur Gilstrap Soames. Lovers of landscape gardens can turn left at the T - junction to the parking lot to view the garden and take some nice pictures.

The fans of old trains can take some nice pictures a little further or take a look at the Bluebell Railway. The Bluebell Railway is a tourist museum railway in East Sussex, England. This railway line between Sheffield Park and Kingscote is 15 km long with a stopover in Horsted Keynes. The Bluebell Railway has its home port in Sheffield Park. But before you reach the Bluebell Railway you will cross the Ouse River for the first time today.

The Ouse is a river in the English counties of West and East Sussex. It rises near Lower Beeding in West Sussex and flows east and then south to reach the sea at Newhaven. It sails past Haywards Heath and passes Lewes. A little later you pass Reedens Meadows, stop here to enjoy the panoramic view of the Wealden landscape.
We drive on and come across the Ouse River for the 2nd and 3rd time, we continue to follow this towards the south and pass it for the 4th time at Newhaven. We then pass the Chuchmere River and drive along the Friston Forest. Friston Forest is located in South Downs National Park between the Lulington Heath Nature Reserve (west of Eastbourne in East Sussex) and the Seven Sisters Country Park. It is the largest area of recently created forest in South East England with a beautiful view of the Cuckmere River. This is a river in England that rises near Heathfield in East Sussex in the south of the Weald and flows into the Channel. The location of the mouth is called Cuckmere Haven. The Cuckmere has numerous tributaries in its upper reaches, of which the River Bull is the most important.

Then it's time for a cup of coffee. We park our bikes at the Birling gap & the Seven Sisters bar. After coffee we will see an impressive natural spectacle "the Seven Sisters". The Seven Sisters is a cliff in South Downs National Park between Eastbourne and Seaford. They are seven adjoining chalk cliffs on the coastline. After taking the photos and having recorded the necessary information, we continue along the coast in an easterly direction, where we can look far ahead over the vast meadows. We stop at Beachy Head to take some pictures. Beachy Head is a cape or bay on the south coast of England in South Downs National Park, near the town of Eastbourne in East Sussex. The cape is best known for the chalk cliffs, which, with their height of 162 meters, are among the highest in England. A little further we pass the Hasting Country Park. The Hastings Country Park was formed in 1974 and covers 345 hectares east of Hastings in England. Sandstone cliffs, valleys covered with broom and trees, hiking trails, nature trails, picnic areas and ample parking are some of the characteristics of the country park.

Then it's lunch time. Just before the built-up area of Winchelsea Beach we go for a meal in the Winchelsea Beach Café. After lunch we drive towards Dover and we pass the River Rother. The River Rother flows through the English counties of East Sussex and Kent for 56 km. The source is near Rotherfield in East Sussex and the mouth is in Rye Bay, part of the English channel. Once arrived in Dover go there to take a look at the chalk cliffs of Dover. The chalk cliffs of Dover are part of the coast of England near the Pas de Calais. With good weather you can see the chalk cliffs of Cap Gris-Nez in France. A visit to The Dover Castle is also worthwhile. This is located a stone's throw from the chalk cliffs.
Dover Castle is a medieval castle in Dover in the English county of Kent. It is the largest castle in England. The castle was built in the 12th century and was described as "the key to England" due to the strategic importance of the castle over the centuries.

After a short stop at the National Trust Cafe we drive further north where we still pass some sights. At the town of Littlebourne, for example, you will pass a nice zoo, the Howletts Animal Park. And in Canterbury we still pass the River Stour.
The River Stour is a river in Kent, England, which flows into the North Sea at Pegwell Bay. Above Plucks Gutter, to which the Little Stour joins, the river is normally known as the Great Stour. Then after a long day we arrive in Whitstable, where we first supply our engines with the necessary fuel and then drive to our hotel. The hotel has a beautiful view over the North Sea and on the terrace we can enjoy the nice tour and the setting sun. We had another great day!

Along the route you have various options to stop for a cup of coffee, something to eat or take a photo. I have included the places where we stopped in the details.

About this region
The points of the compass are the vectors by which planet-based directions are conventionally defined. A compass rose is primarily composed of four cardinal directions—north, east, south, and west—each separated by 90 degrees, and secondarily divided by four ordinal (intercardinal) directions—northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest—each located halfway between two cardinal directions. Some disciplines such as meteorology and navigation further divide the compass with additional vectors. Within European tradition, a fully defined compass has 32 'points' (and any finer subdivisions are described in fractions of points).Compass points are valuable in that they allow a user to refer to a specific azimuth in a colloquial fashion, without having to compute or remember degrees.
