Nature around Brighton


National Trust encourages the visitors to bring their rubbish home, with not putting the bin in the natural areas, so we recommend that our guests bring with them a bag in order to bring the garbage back to an apposite site.


The Seven Sisters and the chalk cliffs are constantly changing. Cliff falls and erosion are part of this changing landscape. Cliff falls and landslides can happen at any time and without warning. We advise visitors to act sensibly when visiting the area and to stay away from the cliff edge.

-Stay away from the edge of the cliff top.

-Stay away from the base of cliffs: rock falls can happen at any time.

-The sea comes in and out twice a day and it is possible to get cut off by the incoming tide or forced up against the cliffs.
