We really enjoyed our visit to the top of the cliffs to view the famous Beachy Head lighthouse and walk along the cliffs with lovely views both out to sea and inland as well. It is well worth a visit

Obvioulsy its an iconic location, but you really have to go there to experience it to understand it. Weather was poor, but that just made it more atmospheric.

A simple but wonderful walk, with epic views. National Trust property is good starting point for a good but doable walk.

A true wonder which is crumbling away each year. Take a day and have a wander.

Great walk along the coast path. Having parked in the pay and display car park near The Beach Head cafe we walked past Beachy Head lighthouse to Belle Tout lighthouse. The path is clearly marked and has a couple of up and downs as you follow the contour of the cliffs and takes just under 2 hours at gentle pace.

You could take the bus or drive (there are parking spaces at various points along the way and near the top) but if you have the time and are able, do as we did, walk about a mile and a half along the shore to Holywell then up to the start of the South Downs Way. The 4 mile loop walk to the top and back started with a fairly steep hill and included one very steep piece up to the Bomber Command memorial.
There are several different pathways with strategically placed benches for resting and just taking in the view, several allow access close to the cliff edge with danger signs and some roped off due to erosion. Do not allow dogs off lead or children close!
Wear good shoes and take your own water especially on a warm day.
There is a coffee shop for recovery tea and cake when you finish.

5 stars. However, no beaches - funny as it's called beachy head.

We parked at Z bends car park which is literally on top of the lighthouse and free from 1800-800. Beautiful place, stunning views

Don't be put off by people saying you need to get the bus. It's only an hour's walk from the main beach and then you can stop at the visitor centre or hike around the hills making a good half day trip.

A recent long weekend to Beachy Head found us discovering there was to be a triathlon on the Sunday so we ventured up here on the Saturday. So glad we did - a diverse range of people of all ages were enjoying the climb/walk up the wonderful countryside with awesome views of the white cliffs and the famous lighthouse. Thoughtfully placed benches at several parts on the pathway provided useful refuge from the blazing sunshine. some parts of the pathway allow access right to the edge with signs about it being dangerous but other parts were roped off due to cliff erosion. the wildflowers dotted on the cliffs were beautiful. The memorial to the airforce personnel provided a wonderful place to rest, admire the view and just reflect. On the Saturday there was a spitfire flying overhead, doing some acrobatic turns and its engine sound only added to the poignancy. the lighthouse itself and continuing the walk to the cafe were such a break from our more usual suburban surroundings - inspiring.

Great view and worth a trip! Although it was more crowded than some of the other viewpoints of the seven sisters cliffs.

I was brought up in Kent, so I'm no stranger to white cliffs, but this is a different level. Very interesting to see in fog.

Fantastic! Amazing venue, good parking, great views, excellent menu and a wonderful place for lovely lunch. This restaurant/pub is a must visit. The location is incredible, on the South Downs with views for miles. Aside from that, the decor inside is lovely, warm and cosy but most importantly the food is exquisite! Great choices, excellent presentation, good value for money and deeeelicious!

Lovely walk, although it was in cloud and we didn't get a glimpse of the lighthouse below, due to being covered in cloud. Otherwise, we'll worth a visit

The Beachy Head Countryside Centre is outstanding. We spent a really interesting hour or so going round the attractively presented and informatively labelled exhibits . The staff are very friendly and keen to help you get the very best from your visit. Free parking. Toilets nearby.

Explored Beachy Head on our way home from dew days in Eastbourne. Wow...... wonderful views and settings. Was a very hot day so the hills was tough to walk but nevertheless was stunning.

You can catch a 13X Bright & Hove bus to Beachy Head from Eastbourne centre and walk back, takes approx an hour to walk depending on route
