Eastbourne - Beachy Head

Eastbourne Seafront. 
Eastbourne is a pretty beach and historic hiking location. We stayed at Ellesmere Hotel, which kindly doesn't charge for your companion dog, clean and great value - recommended! It was £44 for a twin room, which I split with my friend. I took two days off work and we spent the time outdoors walking in the fresh air, we didn't go to any pubs or restaurants and instead chose picnics on the hills. Walk up South Downs National Park - there is a large hill from which you can catch a view of the town. Carry onto Beachy Head.  Ariel view:-
 It's best to visit in sunshine because the chalk lights up a fresh white.
 
We walked to Belle Tout lighthouse (not pictured) and onto Birling Gap. The step climbing and hills were great exercise with amazing views! I think we walked the equivalent of a half marathon on each day. I sewed my trousers using Style Arc Barb pants in a geometric white/navy bengaline.
  
Chalk rest break. The steps down to here are closed in October so we were happy to visit in time.
