Beachy Head is a chalk headland close to Eastbourne, directly to the east of the Seven Sisters and the gateway to the South Downs National Park. It is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain at 162 m (531 ft) above sea level.
Views from the top include a panorama of the south east coast from Dungeness in the east to Selsey Bill in the west. There is a set of wooden steps down to the beach at Cow Gap and fossils can be found on the beach itself; however, frequent small rock falls caused by continuing erosion makes walking along the shore between Cow Gap and Birling Gap dangerous.
There is a wheelchair accessible path, Peace Path, on top of Beachy Head.
