East Sussex, BN20 7YA
Seven Sisters Cuckmere Haven


The Seven Sisters are part of a magnificent stretch of coastline between Seaford and Eastbourne, including Beachy Head beauty spot and these photos show them at their finest. The area is designated and protected as a 'Heritage Coast' and is the finest example of unprotected chalk cliffs in Britain.

The names of the cliffs from west to east are: Haven Brow, Short Brow, Rough Brow, Brass Point, Flagstaff Brow, Bailey's Hill and Went Hill. The reason for why they were so named remains obscure. Part of the South Downs Way long distance footpath, passes over the Seven Sister on its way from Eastbourne to Seaford.

Seaford is an original Victorian seaside town with an unspoiled coastline, stunning scenery and surrounded by the Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Seaford Head Nature Reserve is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and it is from here that you get the classic images of the 'Seven Sisters', looking from Hope Gap across the Cuckmere Valley. Areas of chalk, grassland, salt marsh and shingle spit give a diversity of habitats for wildlife, especially birds

Visiting this beautiful countryside is made easier by buses running along the main A259 every 15 mins at peak times over the summer, and half hourly on Sundays
