Epsom to Brighton – A 45 mile route to Brighton used for the annual ride to Brighton to watch the Veteran Car Run. Cycle back or take the train back to Tattenham Corner via East Croydon from Brighton. Tattenham Corner is the closest station to Woodcote Park but you need to use the Captain’s Drive Entrance. When you come out of the station, head towards the Grandstand using Tattenham Corner Rd. Cross over the round-about and down Ashley Rd towards the traffic lights. At the light turn left into Langley Vale Rd. Under the bridge and take the second on the right which is a drive with gates just past the Holiday Inn road.
