Exploring the UK – Seven Sisters

After four months of lockdown, we finally decided to get out of the safety of our house for a small day trip. The weather was amazing and perfect for a seaside excursion, so we decided to visit the Seven Sisters.

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs by the English Channel. They form part of the South Downs in East Sussex, between the towns of Seaford and Eastbourne in southern England.

We drove around 1.5 hours to arrive at the National Trust – Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters. There are paying parking spaces there which are around £5 for the whole say, or you can park a little further away on the route for free.

We there went so a small walk up the hill towards the Belle Tout Lighthouse. To be honest, as I was looking up the name for the blog I discover that the lighthouse is actually a “quirky” B&B! I would have never guessed it! 


The view from the hill was obviously lovely and I was surprised to see the water to be so blue.

For you fans of aviation, we had a couple of plans flight above us including a Supermarine Spitfire.

We then when back down to the beach ad found a nice spot to have our little pick-nick. I was surprised to see many people swimming, the water was actually super cold. It was a hot day but still how?!

Anyway, we stayed a couple of hours relaxing and I found the opportunity to play around with my camera.

And this was a first little day trip since lockdown. It was nice to finally get out of the house and enjoy the sea, the sun and nature. I realised that I miss those little trip more that I thought especially now that the weather is warm and sunny (not always we are still in the UK).

I hope you enjoyed this cute little post!
