Pretty amazed that the Oostende ferry isn't taking bikes - never heard of that before.

I agree with the suggestion that you look at the sustrans maps, their routes are usually well signposted and take you through some attractive country. But there are stretches through towns which aren't quite so clever.

Much depends on how much time you want to take. If you aren't in a hurry, I would not take the direct route southwest to London. I'd stay further North than that, going more or less due west from Harwich and turning south for London only when I was in the vicinity of Saffron Walden or maybe a bit west of that. That keeps you in the south part of Suffolk, and the north part of Essex, for a lot longer and these areas are full of really attractive little villages, as well as being easy cycling country.
