Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters, Eastbourne

#2 of 11 in Nature in East Sussex
Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Part of the spectacular "Seven Sisters" chalk cliffs, the hamlet Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters stretches along the south coast of East Sussex. The site acts as an entry point to the beach for beautiful coastal walks. On the cliff top sits a cafe for a warm drink on a windy day. Descend the steps to the beach, but be careful of their steepness. The beach itself provides a fantastic location for a picnic while enjoying the sea views and spectacular cliff formations. Discover marine life in the rock pools at low tide, but be sure to keep an eye on the tidal times. Be well prepared for changeable weather conditions by bringing jackets for rain and layers for blustery days. A visit to Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Eastbourne day trip planning site to plot your vacation.

  • Stunning scenery not to be missed - but not for the faint hearted, some serious inclines to overcome  more »
  • The views from here are amazing. The walking is easy. It’s even great in the light rain that I had when there. A wonderful spot.  more »
  • Nice place, cafe service very slow, only pasties sausage rolls and sandwiches available. Only take away and one in at a time.
  • Found this place on google maps. We were looking for somewhere local to walk. Arrived there very surprised, very nice place to go! Can park on the road verge for free and there are wild ponies and amazing views! The walk to the lighthouse and back is quite popular and it felt very special. Would be a great place to meditate too I thought up there with the calm view of the sea. Looking out to the water felt very overwhelming in a good way, seeing how big this planet is when nothing you can see but water is infront of you up on the hill
