“Over a thousand years ago, Sigeric the Serious, Archbishop of Canterbury, travelled all the way to Rome to receive his symbols from the Pope. Now you can follow in his footsteps by taking our version of his route, EuroVelo 5. After starting in the vibrant city of London you can easily make the short trip to Sigeric’s original starting point at the glorious Canterbury Cathedral in Kent. On the other side of the Channel you pass through the political nerve centres of the EU and the breath-taking St. Gotthard Pass (alt. 2.106 m) on the road to the Eternal City.”
