Seven Sisters Beachy Head and Alfriston
Explore the best of the South Downs National Park
We explore the very best of Britain's newest national park, and one of its finest unspoilt coastlines. Found at the point where the South Downs meets the sea, the Sisters were created when ancient rivers cut valleys into the chalk, creating seven peaks. At 531ft above sea level, Beachy Head is the highest chalk sea cliff in the UK. Alfriston is one of England's most picturesque villages, and a great place for a traditional cream tea. A legendary beauty spot on the South Downs, Devil’s Dyke, just five miles north of Brighton, offers stunning panoramas. At nearly a mile long, the Dyke valley is the longest, deepest and widest 'dry valley' in the UK.
