Our first post is dedicated to Beachy Head!

At 530 ft, Beachy Head is the tallest chalk sea-cliff in England. The views from the top on a clear day are absolutely stunning!

Down below at the foot of the cliffs is Beachy Head Lighthouse, with its cheery red and white stripes.

This icon features in our logo because it looks exactly as a lighthouse should.

Every year the cliff recedes a little further, eroded by the battering waves below. So please be careful and don’t be tempted to walk close to the edge.

Beachy Head is also the ‘eastern gateway’ to the South Downs National Park, and it is from here that the famous South Downs Way stretches the entire 99 miles (159km) length of the Park to Winchester in Hampshire.


The nicest way to access Beachy Head is off course on foot.

There is a great circular walk from Eastbourne taking in the famous Beachy Head. This walk is 5 miles (8 km) and should take around 3.5 hours to walk to the village of East Dean.

If you are fit and up for a challenge then you can start at the Seven Sisters and walk the South Downs Way towards Beachy Head.
