This walk takes in the South Coast favourites of Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. Most people take the bus straight to Beachy Head, but it's worth carrying on to Eastbourne and enjoying a walk along the promenade before you tackle Beachy Head.

Continue along the cliff to Cuckmere Haven, also known as the Seven Sisters country park. The best route is to follow the cliff right to the river and take the riverside path to the visitor centre. This is where the buses stop, and there is a nice tea rooms while you wait.
