👣 Hiking Seven Sisters

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.

Trip Highlights:

  • Enjoy breathtaking views of world famous white chalk cliffs and the English Channel.
  • Visit Beachy Head – the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 meters. This well-known beauty spot has also a darker side.
  • Enjoy walks along Eastbourne’s and Seaford’s beautiful promenades and piers.
  • Discover Belle Tout lighthouse, built in 1828. Due to a danger of falling into the sea because of cliff erosion, in 1999 the lighthouse was moved 17 meters away from the cliff edge using hydraulic jacks. In 2010, the lighthouse was turned into a luxury B&B, with a lounge having a 360-degree view.
  • See Martello Tower – a fortress built by the British Empire in the early 18th century to guard Britain from possible Napoleonic invasion. A total of 103 Martello Towers were built in England, set at regular intervals along the southeastern coast.

Additional information:

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 info@evebus.com with email subject “Private tours”.
