Beachy Head

Beachy Head

Beachy Head is a chalk headland between Eastbourne and The Seven Sisters in East Sussex. It is situated in the South Downs National Park forming part of the Seven Sisters Country Park. The cliff is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain and at the foot is the distinctive red and white striped lighthouse. The lighthouse was built to replace the Belle Tout Lighthouse situated a short distance away on the cliff top.

Beachy Head is a popular tourist destination in all seasons affording stunning views of the English Channel, the South Downs and Eastbourne. It can be reached on foot or by public transport from Eastbourne. A popular route is to follow the South Downs Way along the dramatic cliff tops of the Seven Sisters from Cuckmere Haven or from nearby Birling Gap.
