BEAUTIFUL COASTAL DESTINATIONS
Being an island nation, the United Kingdom is not lacking when it comes to beautiful coastline. The dazzling white chalk cliffs known as the Seven Sisters hug the southern coast where the South Downs National Park meets the sea. Stretching from the Victorian seaside town of Seaford to Eastbourne, the sisters were created when ancient rivers cut valleys into the chalk, creating the seven distinct peaks you see today. This section of Heritage Coast is a haven for walkers and cyclists with trails that follow the sea and head inland into the Seven Sisters Country Park, a patchwork of chalk, grassland, salt marsh and shingle spit.
As well as spectacular coastal views, visitors are treated to a wealth of flora and fauna passing flowers and butterflies on the hillsides and encountering wading birds on the beach. For the iconic view of the sheer white cliff face, you’ll want to make the climb to Beachy Head for sweeping views across the English Channel that stretches all the way to France.
