Cycle Route at Seven Sisters Country Park
Found at the point where the South Downs meets the sea, the Sisters were created when ancient rivers cut valleys into the chalk, creating seven peaks. Haven Brow, the highest of them at 253 feet (77 metres), stands majestically to the west of her other sisters who in order are called Short Brow, Rough Brow, Brass Point, Flagstaff Point, Baily's Brow and Went Hill Brow. Under the sea at the foot of the cliffs are a number of gullies and ridges - varied marine life such as sea anemones, snails, and sponges can be found there. Now part of the Heritage Coast, an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and also a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’, the beauty of the area will be protected for generations to come
The area has a long and interesting history, including some fascinating shipwrecks, which you can discover on a series of shorewalks. SSCP is a great place to explore on foot, by bicycle or by canoe, particularly along the spectacular meanders of the Cuckmere River.
The Visitor Centre is situated in an 18th century barn, and provides useful information on the Park with displays and exhibitions. There is also a shop with leaflets, maps and souvenirs on sale.
Exceat Farmhouse Restaurant provides home baked fare of traditional and continental cuisine. The restaurant is open daily throughout the year and caters for individuals, groups, functions or business conferences.

Seven Sisters Country Park is situated at Exceat in East Sussex, just off the A259 between Eastbourne and Seaford. It is easily accessible from anywhere in the South East but to preserve the unspoilt beauty of the South Downs we'd prefer you to leave your car at home.
The park is well served by public transport.
Buses 13 & 12 from Brighton/Eastbourne, and from further along the coast, stop at the Park entrance.
Accessible by Public Transport : 3 miles (4.8 kms) from Seaford station
