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.

The Seven Sisters and Birling Gap cliffs are very impressive. You can also get a great view of the Seven Sisters from the South Hill Barn Car Park; it's a short walk east to get a great view.
