Seven Sisters Country Park
The Seven Sisters Country Park is part of the South Downs National Park and is made up of 280 hectares of of chalk cliffs, meandering river valley and open chalk grassland. The Country Park is named after the famous Seven Sisters chalk cliffs on one of Britain's finest unspoilt coastlines.
What to do
The park is a popular place for a number of outdoor activities including:
Walking - there is a range of excellent opportunities for walkers to enjoy this beautiful landscape. There are a number of footpaths and trails on the Park including The South Downs Way National Trail. It stretches for 100 miles from Eastbourne to Winchester and passes through the Country Park and can be followed over the Seven Sisters cliffs. It offers spectacular views of Cuckmere Haven, Belle Tout and Beachy Head lighthouses.
Birdwatching - with a wide variety of different habitats packed into this special 280 hectare site, there are some great year round birding opportunities, weather permitting.
Cycling - whilst there are no bridleways on the Park, cycling is permitted on the valley floor. There is a concrete track which offers safe and easy access to the beach. The South Downs Way runs through the Park and is a footpath only, so cycling is not permitted on this route.
Canoeing - members of the public can use the meanders for canoeing at any time. However, anyone accessing the meanders by canoe must use the dedicated slipway - this is the only permitted entry and exit point.
