A nice simple walk. Very easy to navigate (just stick to the South Downs Way and follow the cliffs). The transport is excellent, the bus runs every 10 minutes in each direction from Brighton and Eastbourne. This is quite a hilly walk but the views are superb.

Extend This Walk!

You can start this walk from Eastbourne town centre. It's a bit longer, and there's a steep climb up to Beachy Head, but it's a great chance to see a traditional English seaside town!

What do you think?
