Eastbourne, England

We drove down from London and focused mainly on Birling Gap - the National Trust has a cafe there and I needed to visit for my project to try the National Trust scones

Worth noting: 

The Seven Sisters are often used as the body double for the White Cliffs of Dover, for example in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The Seven Sisters have remained very white and undeveloped, whereas Dover is a busy port.
