We are located close to the cliff tops at over 500 feet (150m) above sea level.
Beachy Head with its' iconic, dramatic white chalk cliffs is the 'eastern gateway' to the South Downs National Park, and it is from here that the famous South Downs Way stretches the entire 99 miles (159km) length of the Park to Winchester in Hampshire.
The South Downs National Park is the 10th National Park to be designated in England, providing an area of protected countryside that everyone can visit and enjoy.
We are a registered charity, run and managed by a team of volunteers known as the Friends of Beachy Head Countryside Centre.
The Countryside & Visitor Centre is wheelchair friendly with full access to the Shop, Downland Experience and Sussex Gallery.
We regret that the Beachy Head Countryside and Visitor Centre will be closed for the remainder of the 2020 season.
This decision has been taken in light of current Coronavirus (Covid-19) advice from the UK Government and the particular difficulties we faced in maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for both our volunteer staff and our visitors.
We are taking this time to make a number of improvements in the Countryside Centre and look forward to welcoming you in 2021.
We will update this page as soon as we are able to confirm our 2021 opening date.
