This is a straightforward hike along stunning cliffs. You can’t really get lost, just stay relatively close (but not too close) to the cliff edges. You can walk the entire stretch from Cuckmere Haven in the west to Burling Gap, past the lighthouse on Beachy Head, and onto Eastbourne further east. Going back and forth should take between 6 and 7 hours. Merely concentrating on the most scenic stretch between Cuckmere Haven and Burling Gap will cut that time in half. The cliffs are quite steep with a succession of ups and downs and the day after, your calves might let you know that they form an integral part of your body. This is a very popular family destination not just for locals but also for day trippers from London. And the scenery is magical. Forming part of the South Downs National Park, a series of (7 duh!) white chalk cliffs rise abruptly from the sea. The coastline here is eroding constantly, which explains the pristine, white colour of the rock. The area featured in ‘90s movie ‘Robin Hood. Prince of Thieves’, as the place where Kevin Costner first set foot on English soil again (miraculously he made it to the Forest of Nottingham in time for dinner; a mere 200 miles away). Not to offend fans of Bryan Adams, the final shots of the Who’s film 'Quadrophenia' were also taken on Beachy Head, this time arguably complemented by a much better soundtrack.
