Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters, Eastbourne

4.6
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.

  • An amazing place with wonderful coastal views and walks. Worth going down to the beach to see the vastness of the cliffs too. National Trust shop and toilets.  more »
  • A very beautiful natural landscape. But solid footwear is required. The restaurant in Birling Gap is clean and well maintained.
