In my humble opinion, this image of the Seven Sisters symbolises England. I always remember the watercolour my Grandma painted of this view. And let’s not forget the cartoon of the cliffs on Bill Bryson’s real life adventure book.
Blue ocean. White chalk cliffs. Picturesque view. Iconic.
I’ve been to the Seven Sisters many times. However, it was on my most recent trip that I finally got ‘the’ photograph.
It happened to be a very very hot, humid day in England. But the lack of water and unnecessary amount of sweating was worth every drop (or lack of). I also learned there are three different ways you can view these giant white cliffs.
And it was on this last trip, my Dad and I found the secret path. . . The one which leads to the "‘postcard” worthy shot. Yay.
Travel Tip: A ten minute drive from the cliffs, there is a lovely little spot for afternoon tea. Check out the Tavern On Tye in the small village of Alfriston (some say it’s the oldest English village). You can sit on the outside patio, whilst enjoying the view and your cream tea.
