What to do in Seaford for nature lovers

This coastal town was once a member of the Cinque Ports and was home to sailors, merchants and fishermen, all of whom had prosperous trade due to its lagoon-like harbour. Today, Seaford’s landscape is much changed but its history and maritime links are obvious and very important to this town and its inhabitants. It’s a great place to visit if you are an avid nature lover and down below are a few of the best spots in Seaford where you can view nature at its finest.

The Seven Sisters

Even though this is an obvious one, the Seven Sisters are a stunning natural attraction and a must-visit. The views are amazing so make sure to bring your camera, and there are quite a few spots where you can have an afternoon picnic. If you’re fond of hiking, there are a couple of trails, one of them being a beautiful walk up onto the cliffs where you will be greeted with panoramic views of the sea and beyond.

Friston Forest

Friston Forest is a gorgeous beech forest and a great place to escape to nature. It lies within the South Downs National Park and it is one of the biggest areas of newly established forest in South East England. This large woodland is perfect for a family day out or for those who love exploring the countryside. With cycling and walking trails, along with fantastic views of the South Downs and Cuckmere, there’s something for everyone at Friston Forest.

Cuckmere Valley

Cuckmere Valley is one of the most popular nature spots in East Sussex and it’s not hard to see why. In the distance, you will be able to see the striking white chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters rise up from the sea, standing as a symbol of British fortitude. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, with Wildfowl spending the winter here and in the summer, colourful wildflowers and rare butterflies can be seen.
