Birling Gap, Eastbourne

Birling Gap, Eastbourne

Birling Gap is part of the headland that characterises Eastbourne’s coastline; its the soft, chalky soil that keeps the cliffs a startling white. Right at the cliff top, you’ll find The National Trust’s visitor shop and cafe, which is an excellent place to have a break.

The pebbly beach below is an ideal spot to have a picnic and explore the rock pools. You can take in the unique chalk platforms and piles of fallen cliff rock. If you fancy a stroll, you can walk from the beach to the Belle Tout neolithic enclosure. This offers 500 acres of downland, an endangered chalk hills habitat.

It’s well worth visiting nearby Beachy Head, with its iconic lighthouse and stunning vista while you’re in the area too. For an entertaining evening out, do consider attending a performance at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre.
