THE SEVEN SISTERS ARE A SERIES OF CHALK CLIFFS BY THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. THEY FORM PART OF THE SOUTH DOWNS IN EAST SUSSEX, BETWEEN THE TOWNS OF SEAFORD AND EASTBOURNE IN SOUTHERN ENGLAND. THEY ARE WITHIN THE SOUTH DOWNS NATIONAL PARK WHICH IS BOUNDED BY THE COAST, THE CUCKMERE AND THE A259 ROAD.
If you are coming from London by train (which takes about 1 to 2 hours) you should go all the way to Seaford, and this is where your journey starts.

1st Day – Explore Seaford
Once checked in at your apartment (1 night), go around exploring Seaford’s little streets. This interesting little town has a history of smuggling and is curious to walk around. Also, do not miss the sunset at Seaford Beach! English beaches are very beautiful, they have this sense of dramatic atmosphere but calm at the same time, you will really enjoy the scenery.
End the day having some food and beers at some local English pub, prices here are much cheaper compared to London.
2nd Day – The journey begins
We recommend to wake up early (6am) and make your way towards the cliffs where Seaford Beach is, this is where your journey begins!
Follow the South Downs Way (it is very well signposted) all the way to Eastbourne. You will pass fields, flowers, pubs, wildlife, beaches, a river and much more!
If you have time, you can catch the train from Eastbourne to Rye for dinner. Rye is a super cute Medieval English village which has been the location for many movies. It has plenty of atmospheric pubs with delicious food.
