For our FINAL Try It! Fortnight walk we’ll be taking on one of the most fantastic cliff-top walks in the whole of the UK (and a UCL Hiking ultimate favourite): the famous Seven Sisters. You can expect views of the chalk cliffs stretching as far as you can see, with rolling hills all the way along the route. Expect to catch a sight of the renowned Beachy Head, before ending in the elegant seafront town of Eastbourne. We will be departing early in the morning as the walk is quite long, so make sure you get a good night’s sleep before this one!

If you’ve never hiked before, we don’t recommend this walk for complete beginners, as there isn’t an opportunity to stop half way and there are quite a number of climbing and descending of hills. But if you're ready to take on the challenge, come along!
