Seaford To Cuckmere Haven and Beyond
From Seaford Head to Cuckmere is a very easy and pleasant walk made mainly of gentle rolling hills until you arrive at Cuckmere Haven down onto a large pebbly beach... At that point you turn northwards walking inland alongside Cuckmere River also known as the snake river, until you reach the main road... From there you enter the Seven Sisters Country Park where you will find several routes, they're not hugely different they all end up taking you to the cliffs one way or another... There are nature trails that are less direct and longer. You can take the long trail by going off the beaten track along the hilly route, or go along a track straight to the cliffs... We often choose the second option, on the way down at least. The area is very hilly, and if you want to go up the cliffs be ready for some steep ups and downs. Its about a 20 minute walk up to the cliffs. Once you get to the top you are rewarded with a marvelous view of the cliffs along the chalky coastline. Note, there are no fences to stop you getting too close to the edge. The cliffs are magnificent and iconic. The sea on certain days varies from turquoise to emerald green. The whole area is a great photo opportunity ... Sometimes we walk all the way to Beachy Head but not usually, at least not on the same day ... This is a great walk on any day but it is just superb on a clear calm day.

Hello Nick, I was looking for some nice places to visit on our way up from Dover to visit my sister this week. So I "stumbled" over your gallery and this particular photo. Excellent shot of this beautiful area. Special thanks for the excellent information, which I have copied. I will put it on my list and will sure visit it if the weather is decent. LIKE and greetings from Holland, Jan
travelingcrow, Thank you glad you like it... I can certainly guaranty that you will enjoy this particular walk... weather permitting of course! Perhaps its important to be well equipped for all weathers unless you like to get very wet!... The long term weather forecast for England is that we will not get any summer at all this year! :))
