Description

After an absence last summer, the ever-popular UK Hoyas Ramble is back for its 3rd outing! This year, we will be rambling to see the Seven Sisters Chalk Cliffs - one of the most stunning pieces of English coastline. It has been made famous in such films as 2007's Atonement starring James McAvoy and Keira Knightley.

We'll begin our journey at Seaford Rail Station. From there, we'll make our way along through Seaford to a cliff-top coastal walk down to salt marshes of the Cuckmere River and Exceat (3.9 miles/6.2km), where we'll stop for lunch. After lunch, we have the option to either take the bus to the elegant seafront town of Eastbourne, or continue walking to Birling Gap & East Dean (additional 5.4 miles/8.7km), and then take the bus to Eastbourne. In Eastbourne, we can choose to relax at the seaside or recover in a pub, if time permits.

You must secure your own transportation to Seaford and from Eastbourne. Suggestions for the first trains from and to London are in the below schedule.

Schedule:

08:12 - Departure from London, London Bridge Station (Change at Haywards Heath & Lewes - Arrives 9:59)

We recommend good walking shoes. This event will proceed rain or shine. Please check the weather and bring appropriate clothing. There will be no other stops to acquire provisions along the walk, other than a tea room at Birling Gap, so please bring water and any other necessities for a 6 hr walk.

We hope to see you in Sussex or at another event soon!

Hoya Saxa!
