The Seven Sisters are a series of white chalk cliffs and are set within the Seven Sisters Country Park. They are remnants of dry valleys in the South Downs and were formed at the end of the last ice age by glacial melt water. There are in fact now eight sisters as an extra one has been created by coastal erosion.

We start the walk from the coastal town of Seaford, then to Birling Gap and then go past Belle Tout a former lighthouse. After lunch, the rest of the walk takes us through the Seven Sisters Country Park. We will visit the beauty spot of Beachy head and finish in the town of Eastbourne.
