Warming up after a chilly walk

Even in winter Birling Gap is a great place to enjoy a cliff top walk, let the kids burn off some energy on the hills, or just enjoy the stunning views. When you've finished your walk why not stop into the café for a warming cup of tea, yummy cakes, or even a hot meal, all served with a backdrop of the stunning sea view.

There are baby-changing facilities available at Birling Gap, and much of the surrounding area is accessible to all-terrain buggies, although there is a flight of steps down to the beach. So why not pop on your woolly hat, chuck on your wellies, and come and enjoy this beautiful downland spot?
