The Seven Sisters is a set of chalk cliffs which range along the English Channel between the city of Seaford and Eastbourne. The hike is about 22 kilometers long in total, and while not terribly difficult, there is quite a lot of ups and downs. Along the way (three-fourths in or so), there’s a camp called Beachy Head where you can get some food. There are busses which leave from Beachy Head to Eastbourne, but when I hiked during Sunday they came very, very seldom. To get to Seaford where I started the hike, I simply took a train from London which took about 1.5 hour, and likewise to get home there was a train from Eastbourne.
I took the hike beginning of March, starting in Seaford and ending up in Eastbourne. I’d recommend the same route by starting in Seaford, if you start in Eastbourne you’ll have to walk quite far to get to the cliffs and I think the viewing is probably better from Seaford — most cliffs oddly enough felt more centered from that way, so I didn’t have to turn around as much compared to if I was coming from the other way. It was very windy, with a couple of rain showers sneaking in which I think can be expected along the coast this time of year. Luckily, the sun was out majority of the time! I think it was a lovely time of the year to do the hike, it was quite warm by Swedish standards and the wind never chilled me down particularly much, even though I by no means had proper warm clothing. :-)
The wind and pastelle colors reminded me a lot of the beach scenes from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which led me to grade the images with a bit more film-like feeling.
