The route description never changed, running London - Paris - Rome - Palermo for all 33 years.
Beginning in Central London, the E1 headed west to Hounslow on the A4, before taking the A30 to Basingstoke and then the A33 to Southampton. When the M3 opened, it diverted onto the A316 and M3 route, rather than going via Hounslow.
Le Havre - Paris - Sens - Avallon - Chagny - Mâcon - Lyon - Valence - Bollène - Aix-en-Provence - Saint-Raphaël - Nice - Italy (Vintimille)
