Come and join us for a legendary and one of the most spectacular coastal hikes in the South East of England!
We’re off to the Seven Sisters – a series of white chalk cliffs found on the coast of East Sussex by the English Channel. They are thought to have formed by glacier meltwater at the end of the last Ice Age (10,000 BC): the meltwater carved steep-sided valleys, which were then truncated by sea erosion into the cliffs we see today.
On this hike, we will walk the classic Seven Sisters route from Seaford to Eastbourne. This is a challenging hike with 500 metres of ascent spread over 20+ kilometres and virtually non-stop climbing and descending! For pretty much the whole hike we will enjoy stunning panoramic views over the coastline and the English Channel.
Distance: 23 km.
Ascent: 650 metres.
The hike is suited for people with a medium or excellent level of fitness or for those that want to challenge themselves. There will be a total of 8+ hills to hike up and down.
08:45 meet near Ibis London City Hotel, 5 Commercial Street, E1 6BF (next to Aldgate East station); 09:00 sharp departure; 11:00-17:00 hiking Seven Sisters with a lunch stop at Birling Gap; 17:00 departure; 19:00 London, Aldgate East.
There will be a variety of nice places along the way to buy your lunch and hot drinks, however, feel free to bring your own packed lunch.
This hike is led by an experienced, Outdoor First Aid qualified Mountain Leader.
What to bring:
We will take care of the rest, so just turn up and have a great day hiking 😊!
If you’d like to walk at a faster pace than the group, we recommend to download the Maps.me app on your phone. All maps in the app are offline, which means that you’ll be able to use them without an internet connection or in places with poor reception. The Maps.me app is free and is very easy to use. On the day, I will explain how to use the app and share the GPS route of the hike. For more details on how to download the app see here.
Traveling in small groups creates a friendly atmosphere. We aim to have no more than 16 walkers per group leader.
This tour, as well as any other Evebus Tours, can be arranged for private groups. Please contact us on email@example.com with email subject “Private tours”.
