• Hike to Seaford, Seven Sisters & Eastbourne on Sat 4 May

    Eventim Apollo

    £35.00

    We're going on a hike over the Seven Sisters cliffs on Saturday 4th May. Join us for the most amazing coastal walk in the south east of England, from the Seven Sisters Country Park, past the Coastguard Cottages in Seaford, over the famous white cliffs at Seven Sisters with breathtaking views across the coast, past Birling Gap and the Belle Tout Lighthouse, and over to the beauty spot of Beachy Head, and finally into the seaside town of Eastbourne which is the sunniest place in the UK. The Seven Sisters cliffs are made from chalk that formed underneath the sea millions of years ago, and shaped by glacial melting during the last ice age and more recent sea erosion. As the cliffs crumble, the chalk reveals fossils from the prehistoric sea floor.
