The Seven Sisters are a series of soaring chalk cliffs along the Sussex coast from the River Cuckmere to Eastbourne. Whilst erosion over recent years has made it difficult to distinguish the seven separate peaks, this remains an iconic walk.

Our walk starts in Seaford where we will walk along the seafront before we head up to Seaford Head.  At the fisherman’s cottages at the top of Seaford Head we will get one of the best views of the Cuckmere valley and the Severn Sisters ahead of us. We will then detour inland though the nature reserve of Cuckmere Haven, before crossing the river Cuckmere and then turning back towards the coast before we start our climb to the top of the cliffs and follow the Sussex Heritage coastal path.

Part way along is the Birling Gap National Trust café, where we can have a welcome break and a drink. After our stop we will climb eastwards to see the famous Belle Tout lighthouse which was moved on railway tracks to stop it falling into the sea.  We then continue eastwards towards Beachy Head before we descend towards Eastbourne, and then a walk along the promenade towards Eastbourne Pier.
