Whether you want a bucket and spade for building sandcastles, a net for rockpooling, flip-flops or sunglasses to stay comfortable or sunscreen and a hat to keep your kids or yourself safe in the sunshine we have a range of quality beach essentials for your visit to the beach.
Shop for walking inspiration
We have a range of maps and guides for local walks including Ordinance Survey, walking guides and books about the South Downs Way. We also stock a selection of Regatta clothing and umbrellas for when the weather isn't so warm and sunny.
Supporting our work here at Birling Gap
Every penny you spend in our shop and cafe supports our work caring for the South Down's countryside and coastal areas. Pop in to us at Birling Gap to support our work whether you buy a cake for Crowlink, a drink for Devil's Dyke or a scarf for Saddlescombe. We use your money to ensure our areas of the South Downs are here for you to enjoy forever.
