THE TRIP IS NOW FULL, IF YOU WISH TO GO ON THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT: [masked].

Come along on Saturday 20th April for a day trip walking the Seven Sisters on the Sussex coast!

About the day
The Seven Sisters is a series of chalk cliffs on the south coast. They form part of the South Downs in East Sussex, between the towns of Seaford and Eastbourne.

The Seven Sisters cliffs are occasionally used in filmmaking and television productions as a stand-in for the more famous White Cliffs of Dover, since they are relatively free of anachronistic modern development and are also allowed to erode naturally. As a result, the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head remain a bright white colour, whereas the White Cliffs of Dover are protected due to the important port and are therefore increasingly covered in vegetation and are greening as a result.

We will walk around 9 miles, on grass, but the gradiant of the 'sisters' are up and down, so please wear appropriate footwear. Please also bring food and drink for the day.

The walk is a social walk and we will be staying together. The pace will be slow and we will be stopping for breaks along the cliffs and at the cafes. The coach will be dropping us off at one end and picking us up later at the other end. At the end of the walk at Beachy Head, there is a pub/cafe.

At 5:30pm, we will head back to London, dropping off back near St James' Park Tube Station by about 7:30pm (depending on traffic).

We are going by executive coach (we have changed coach companies from last year) and all coaches now have a toilet on board.
