There is stunning countryside and wonderful cycle routes and  walks in Eastbourne and Sussex. The magnificent stretch of coastline between Seaford and Eastbourne and inland to the A27 is designated and protected as a ‘Heritage Coast’, one of the finest examples of unprotected chalk cliffs in Britain which includes the famous Beachy Head and Seven Sisters cliffs. Inland, the rolling landscape of the South Downs and the meanders of the Cuckmere Valley offer beautiful views and delightful walks.

Just 30 metres from Gyves House bed and breakfast, you can also just step out onto the parade and stroll to the Pier or along to the Bandstand. Keep on to picturesque Holywell Bay at the end of the Parade, which is the start of the beautiful cliffs and South Downs. You can easily walk at this point to Beachy Head along the Downs, the dramatic 530 feet high cliffs give stunning views over the Eastbourne and the English Channel.. or why not hop on the open top bus to Beachy Head and Birling Gap, start your walk there.

The South Downs is now Britain’s tenth National Park. Stretching across the South of the Sussex area from Beachy Head near Eastbourne in the East to Harting Down in the West this new National Park covers an area of 1,600 km2 and is seen by many as one of ‘Britain’s Breathing Spaces‘. It includes protected chalk  Downland, ancient woodlands, spacious heathland and river valleys and spectacular coastlines including the glorious white cliffs of the Seven Sisters.

When you walk on the South Downs you walk in the footsteps of ancestors who lived here over 6,000 years ago. Explore archaeological sites, from Iron Age Hill Forts and ancient Priories to historic castles and working museums, great country houses and parklands….
