We hiked from 7 Sisters to Birling Gap. The views were amazing. A great way to see the cliffs. The beach was great too. We feasted on blackberries 😃.

The National Trust visitor centre is wonderful with terrific volunteers. As the coast line is eroding rapidly, they will lose it in the next few years. If the steps are open to the beach, you can get a wonderful view of the cliffs.

We parked at the Seven Sisters Information Centre and it was a long walk out to see the Seven Sisters. View was great but allow hour and a half return walk at a steady pace, plus viewing time.
