Beachy Head are the highest chalk cliff headlands in the United Kingdom. The spectacular cliff tops of Beachy Head are a must see for all visitors to Eastbourne and the South Downs. Walk up from the western end of Eastbourne seafront or cycle from the start of the South Downs Way.
The iconic Beachy Head lighthouse is very impressive. Beachy Head Lighthouse was built in the sea below Beachy Head. It is 43 m (141 ft) in height and became operational in October 1902.
Despite being a beautiful place with stunning views, there is a sad story associated with these cliffs. Many people have committed suicide by jumping off the cliffs.
I was very lucky to have the opportunity to come and visit one of my best friends Madeleine, and she took me to these amazing cliffs. It was a very cold and windy day, but beautiful. On the way back, we passed some stunning English countryside.
I had a very interesting day visiting friends, and exploring the English Sussex coast.
