This is an amazing place to visit with spectacular views. There is access to the beach via steps but the beach is stoney. Car parking is available at a small cost. There is a National Trust cafe and shop with facilities

Warm sunny October morning was perfect for sightseeing the beautiful white cliffs, blue sky and ocean. It is really nice just to walk around, people watch and enjoy the beautiful views.

Stunning place to visit. Dramatic landscape. Fabulous for families, couples, groups, photographers, etc. National Trust facilities were, as always, excellent. Plenty of parking, clean toilets, nice coffee shop, gift shop and exhibition room.

The visitor center is very interesting. Sadly the cliff is receding at a fast rate; there are photos of where it was in 1900 and a line where it is expected to be in the future. The NT volunteer/guide was very friendly and informative.
