Walk, cycle, and enjoy the sea air at Undercliff Walk, a popular scenic coastal walk stretching from Brighton Marina to Saltdean. This area is of special historical and geological interest, containing fossils of mammoths, woolly rhinos, and hippos. The iconic chalk and flint cliffs, which have become a symbol of East Sussex and Kent, are propped up by a concrete seawall. A broad promenade tops the wall, providing walkers with unobstructed views of the cliffs and the sea. The walk is about 4.8 km (3 mi) long, and passes through the picturesque village of Rottingdean, famous for its tea shops and small restaurants. On sunny days the glare from the cliffs can be quite intense, so don’t forget to bring your sunglasses.
