HikingGreat!

Did this on NY Day & was stunning. We started at Cuckmere Haven parked at the Seven Sisters Country Park & walked TO Birling Gap (and back) Seemed a better way round & less hectic carpark wise. (Note no loo’s at the mo at Cuckmere Haven / country park, not great), but are at Birling Gap & refreshments. Hard work there & back was pushing on for 8 miles but a good accomplishment!

HikingGreat!

Loved this walk. Lots of ups and downs over the hills. Views almost from the kick off. Nice to have a picnic near the lighthouse. You can detour down onto Birling gap beach and have a snooze weather permitting. Cliffs are amazing. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful walk up and down the Seven Sisters. We went on a Thursday in early September - perfect weather and not too many people on the path. I’m not a regular hiker and found it challenging but manageable. Beware - there are some steeper chalky hills which I imagine would be slippery in inappropriate footwear or on a rainy day.

Fabulous! What a great trail! It will get your heart pumping a bit as well - not the easiest. The views are spectacular in any weather. I went in a bright sunny day. Looking at the photos of the other hikers, I get fascinated still with the beauty of the place.

Great trail. Views, nature, and overall atmosphere. Hilly and not necessarily the easiest difficulty, properly a moderate level but nothing too crazy.

Some steep sections but very beautiful on a sunny day. We went around Cuckmere Haven adding about an hour or more. Quite muddy. And we added a bit on to the end as we had a pint of Guinness in the Crown and Anchor in Eastbourne.

Great seaside hike with views of the chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters. Parts were muddy, long day and very cold and windy. Dress appropriately.

The South Downs are incredible — gorgeous walks for miles that aren’t too challenging but provide lots of pretty views such as the seven sisters and the sea houses right there.
