There are many different habitats at Birling Gap for you to discover and enjoy. From flower strewn chalk grassland to rock pools filled with exciting marine life, whatever the season there's something new to see.
Rock pools are the classic sea-side habitat and the ones here at Birling Gap are no exception.
Species rich and declining, chalk grassland is the jewel in the crown on the South Downs downs along the seven Sisters.
The garden at Birling Gap showcases the habitats found along the Sussex coast.
Sheer cliffs and cliff top grassland seem inhospitable but life finds a way to cling on.
Even though it looks empty, marine mammals are seen out to sea,
Keeping Birling Gap in good shape for visitors is a full time job and we take our conservation work of this unique site very seriously.
Our coasts are constantly changing through actions such as rising sea levels, erosion and weathering. These are all part of the natural processes that have been happening for centuries and have shaped Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters.
Step out and enjoy big skies and coastal landscapes throughout the year. A perfect spot to enjoy big skies, seascapes, changing colours and quiet walks.
