    You could do much of that along Sustrans Route 4 in to London and Route 1 out to the coast, 247 miles according to Google

    A real coast to coast would be Lands End to Dover, 430 miles if you use Route 3 to Bristol then Route 4 and 1 as above; but having done parts of Route 3, I can tell you it goes nowhere fast.

    Having looked at the map the favourite for me would have to be Lands End to Dover along Route 2, a Coast to Coast along the coast..... now there’s an adventure...!

    We did our own Coast to Coast this year; however in France not the U.K. Channel to the Med. It was hot but worth every mile of effort.

    The best C2C is the Cornish Mining Trail. 11 miles, chip shop at one end, pub at the other!

    For a truly coast to coast, you could try Ardnamurchan Point to Lowestoft Ness. The most westerly to the most easterly points of the British mainland.
