Seven Sisters at Birling Gap

About

Birling Gap is a beautiful and tranquil enclosed pebble beach set below the dramatic backdrop of the Seven Sisters cliffs. Accessible from the pretty Sussex village of East Dean, the short drive to the beach offers wide views of the rolling Sussex downland.

There is plentiful parking, and after descending the metal staircases to explore the beach or taking a dramatic walk along the clifftops, refreshments are available from the superb National Trust Visitor Centre cafe.

Beach is only accessed down a steep set of steps
