Its a beautiful beach, I have been there many times. But the cliffs there are very unstable, and I once seen an avalanche happen in front of my very eyes. So for your own safety, stay away from the cliffs.

The walk from Birling Gap to Seven Sisters is just under 4 Miles, a word of Warning if you are very unfit, you really have to take your time, Seven Sisters are Seven Giant Hills, so take... More

First visit since it has been taken over by the National Trust. Greatly improved cafe and shop with friendly staff and the visitor centre was very interesting with photos and videos demonstrating just how much of the cliff has fallen into the sea over the years. Regular visitors should pick up a coffee collectors card which willbe stamped on each... More

A place of interest for all those who are interested in the U.K,s places of natural beauty. The National Trust café that is situated there is also a place that is worth a visit, as is the National Trust shop. The Seven Sisters is also a place of interest,

Walkers love this area. Birling Gap is in the midst of the Sussex cliffs and it is famous for the row of houses which have been gradually disappearing as the land continues to be eroded by the sea. You can see some remains of what were once houses on the stony beach. The National Trust facilities are excellent now (they... More

Been today, weather lovely. A lovely uphill walk to the lighthouse but away from the cliffs edge (if you have dogs like us) dogs allowed in the trust shop and parts of the cafe. Spectacular views of the cliffs. Facilities immaculate. Less busy than Beachy head and views better in my view. A nice place to relax for a few... More
