After Beachy Head you get Birling Gap and the seven sisters. Great place for hikes, beach walks and other more daring activities. At Birling Gap there is seating a restaurant and stairs down to the beach. A must see.

Although access to the beach is closed at present we got excellent views of the Severn Sisters by climbing the steps. Lovely National Trust shop and cafe, excellent Hot Chocolate.

Beautiful views. Very interesting museum and nice tea room. Shame that you couldn't go down to the beach as they were building new stairs down. Definitely worth the visit.

As a regular visitor throughout the summer for swimming in the sea. Best at high tide for a quick dip, low tide great for kids and rock pooling.

Can appreciate the grandeur of the coastal cliffs, and observe the power as the cottages and now the stairway to the beach get eaten away by the pounding of the waves. Good car park, and cafe. Base for walking if you have the energy, or...More

This is a site I have visited on numerous occasions before. Sadly due to cliff erosion this site is undergoing heavy reconstruction work to save several cliff top houses and further erosion of the cliffs. The nearby South Downs walk is unaffected though so it...More

Fabulous place to go for a walk, long or short. National trust tea room for a well earned break, car park free for members otherwise pay and display. Ever on a very cold windy day the views are great.
