South Downs National Park

About

The Downs around Eastbourne are recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The dramatic 530 feet high cliffs of Beachy Head give stunning views over the Eastbourne and the English Channel.

Why not walk or cycle the South Down's Way. The route stretches for 90 miles between Eastbourne and Winchester, taking in picturesque villages and stunning scenery. It is suitable for walkers, horse riders and mountain bikes.

Eastbourne benefits from its prominent position at the foot of the South Downs and with this beautiful backdrop, the seaside resort enjoys its own unique microclimate, away from some of the harsh weather elsewhere.
