“Spoilt by bad weather”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

I admit the scenery is great but don't go when the weather is poor. On my visit it started raining about halfway during the hike and the grounds got very muddy. Being in the middle of nowhere, I had to walk for another 2 hrs with terrible visibility to find a shelter. I know it might be great with good weather but I will not return.

“fabulous views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

£3.00 entry but well worth it. Lovely walks along cliff tops on well-maintained paths, and a large cafeteria

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

A terrific view. The whole area has plenty of green. The fresh breeze coming from the deep sea.
Romantic, good place for new couples running in low budge. Why? Because around there you can have great moments to keep for life and you wont need to spend all you poor pounds.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Car park, cafe and toilet facility available. Self guide given. Nice slow walk to the lighthouse and back again. Took a flask of coffee with us (it was bitterly cold weather).
Will go again

“Absolutely stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had the best time here at the White Cliffs experience. If you are afraid of heights, then perhaps this might not be your cup of tea. I recommend visiting in the Summer months when the weather is great (perhaps better) and taking a long walk on the recommended trail and experience this for yourself. If you're a photographer, there's plenty of photo opportunities for you to take some stunning pictures of the cliff from above. There's no attraction fee but you will have to pay for parking.
