Manager recommends

  • Enjoy stunning sea views along the Seven Sisters cliffs. Walk from Exceat to Birling Gap (3.5 miles) and treat yourself to ice-cream in a café at the end. Enjoy great views from the top deck of the bus back to the hostel or stroll back through Friston Forest to catch a glimpse of local wildlife.
