Beautiful walk under chalk cliffs from Brighton Marina to the historic village of Rottingdean where Rudyard Kipling once lived. In summer its fun to explore the rocks and swim in the English Channel when the tide is in.

A really easy flat walk with fabulous views with the back drop of towering white cliffs. Of course it is a nicer walk on a sunny day, but is fun to go when the wind is gale force and the waves are crashing over the...More

The walk is lovely, easy, good for cycling and walking away form the crowded roads. you can admire the coastline and jump in the water in the hot sunny days. Cafe mid-way. It's a lovely side of Brighton which is nice and peaceful enough ..

A great walk, offering flat, predictable terrain, great views of the sea, wonderful white cliffs towering overhead. Perfect for buggies, wheelchairs, scooters, bikes, trikes. We walked from Brighton seafront, following it along to the marina, then followed the marked pedestrian route to the undercliff walk....More

Great all year round, but important to check that the waves are not too lively against the wall. It is a great walk just as the light is fading - great sunsets on the Saltdean to Rottingdean stretch going west. Good place for an undisturbed...More

This is an alternative to or an addition to walking along 'the prom, Brighton's iconic seafront'. The Undercliff is accessible to pushchairs/wheelchairs, is more about enjoying the sea, the birds, the rock pools and a leisurely stroll compared to the hustle and bustle of the...More

We were staying in Brighton, and decided on a scenic bus ride to Eastbourne and back, and we got off at Rottingdean. After lunch at the White Horse we walked back to Brighton on the Undercliff walk. The wind was strong, and it was an...More

A wonderful place to stroll by the sea. Great communal feeling - a dog walker's favourite. Only downside is the recklessness of some cyclists who disregard the notices and ride where they shouldn't.

Great walk between Brighton and Rottingdean on a clement day. Treat yourself to a couple of beers in one of Rottingdeand charming pubs and you can always get the bus back should you have one too many.

Hi Amber, it's a public footpath and is therefore open 24x7x365 but I wouldn't recommend it during the hours of darkness at this time of year particularly if there are large waves but during the day it would be fine. Enjoy.
