Hiking Experience in Seven Sisters White Cliffs
Do you like hiking? Do you like taking challenges? We are addicted to hiking because we could see something that we don't usually see in a city. That's why we always go hiking with our camera so that we can capture all these photogenic places! We wanted to go to the white cliffs for so long and we finally had some free time to visit Sussex so it was time to see those beautiful cliffs in person finally! So let's get started!

Taking a Bus from Brighton to Seven Sisters Country Park
We came here from Brighton city centre; there are some regular bus services running from Brighton to Sussex. Taking a bus is the best and easiest way to get here unless you've got a car. There's actually a stop in Seven Sisters Country Park but we decided to go a bit further down and walk along the cliffside back to the country park. So we got off the bus at East Dean stop where it's around an hour drive away from Brighton.
The Seven Sisters Challenge Begins...
Keep going and following on the Gilberts Drive and turn right to Birling Gap Road, you'll then get to the Birling Gap at the end and see what we've found. There's a large carpark, a cafe and a souvenir shop here. If you'd like to get down to the beach, there's a staircase in the nearby as well. We started our "Seven Sisters Mission" adventure right here, as we were trying to meet "them" all before the sunset! It took us around 3 hours to walk back to the country park. Most of the time we spent so much time on taking pictures though. However, the cliffs are rough and steep so don't expect to just walk but to climb as well. Woohoo! We did it anyway!
When we came back home and looked at ourselves through the mirror, we just realised we totally forgot to apply suncream... because our nose was tanned, and yes, only our nose...
