Outstanding experience visiting Birling Gap. I took the 13X bus from Eastbourne Pier and did 2-3 of the walking trails from the National Trust website. (I downloaded their app but it was useless because there's no cell service or wifi at the visitor centre.) It was an outstanding experience walking those trails, seeing those sites, and taking it all in.... More

If you are in the area, probably having been to Beachy Head (I would say it is the most stunning view in the area) then this is worth seeing on the way but would not be the first choice of view if you're time limited. If you can, park up at Beachy Head in the visitor centre, it's free whereas... More

Visited today for a cuppa and cake. Lovely Gluten Free Lemon Cup Cake. Lots of staff around, very helpful. Need more sofa type seating as it was very comfortable to sit on, but had to wait for it to be available.

Walked along beach and up to lighthouse. Very windy but exilerating. Nice National trust cafe for tea cake, toilets clean. Good fun searching rock pools for weaver fish and crabs!

A very popular viewpoint with short walks to cliff top vistas - The car parks and cafe were rammed so we did not bother trying to get drinks and eats there as was the intention, we simply headed back to Eastbourne for refreshments.

Stunning views of Seven Sisters. The Centre has lots of information,and hands on explanation as to why and when things happen to the cliffs and land around it,by the sea.It even has marking and dates,marked out on the floor,when the next erosions are expected. Very interesting place to visit,and it's free. While you are there,treat yourself to someone nice from... More
