There is a wealth of history and natural beauty waiting to be explored along the Sussex Heritage Coast. The Downs around Eastbourne are recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The famous beauty spot, Beachy Head is only a short drive away. Beachy Head is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain. At 530 feet high, the majestic cliffs provide magnificent views.
East Dean is a beautiful South Downs village close to Beachy Head and Birling Gap beach. Sample beers from the Beachy Head Brewery at old smugglers pub, The Tiger Inn on the village green. Visit restaurants including the Thai Terre where you will experience their superb Thai cuisine, or perhaps stop off for a while at the Hikers Rest cafe and gift shop. The Seven Sisters Sheep Centre and the East Dean Market (every Weds morning) are also worth a visit.
The nearby Seven Sisters Country Park comprises of nearly 700 acres of land. The Park is named after the famous Seven Sisters chalk cliffs. Next to the famous chalk cliffs is Cuckmere Haven (also known as the Cuckmere Estuary), which has been one of our favourite family walking spots for many years. Situated between Eastbourne and Seaford, the river Cuckmere winds its leisurely way through wide flood plains, twisting and turning with its oxbow bends before emerging on to the pebble beach at Seaford Head. A visit to the Exceat Tea Rooms for lunch or afternoon tea after your walk is a must.
Nestling in the nearby Cuckmere valley is the beautiful old Sussex village, Alfriston, which has a range of shops mainly specialising in gifts, but also has restaurants to enjoy.

The village of Battle, whose name originates from the Battle of Hastings in 1066, fought between Harold the Saxon king and William the Conqueror, is worth a visit. Battle High Street has some quaint and interesting shops and restaurants together with a Norman church.
