Cliff Edge, Seven Sisters, Sussex

OK, that's a pretty tall statement, but the area is gorgeous. This hike is featured in a noted guide book as one of the not to miss hikes in England and I definitely agree. We started in Alfriston, made our way through the Seven Sisters Park and finished in Eastbourne. Approx 22km (6 hours). However you can cut out the start and end points and just do the park. The walk takes you along the top of eight cliffs with continuous views of the ocean. Because the coastline curves, you get great views of the white chalk cliffs in front and behind you. It's tempting to get close to the edge for lovely photos/views, but do be careful as it can get quite windy. Walking is mostly up and down with some flat sections. Make sure to wear appropriate footwear and walk on a nice day. The area is wide open so you would get completely drenched in bad weather. Views are spectacular in all directions so it doesn't matter from which direction you start the hike. If you are taking the train, the easiest access point is Eastbourne. From here, bus service is available to the park entrance or you can start walking west of city centre. Car parks (fees charged) are at the Park Visitor Centre in Exceat and are convenient. Toilets and food are available at the Visitor Centre as well as at Birling Gap. Up to date info at:
