Welcome to the official website of the Beachy Head Countryside Centre located close to the cliff tops at over 500 feet above sea level.
Beachy Head with its' iconic, dramatic white chalk cliffs is the eastern 'gateway' to the National Park, and it is from here that the famous South Downs Way stretches the entire 99 miles (160km) length of the Park to Winchester in Hampshire.
The South Downs National Park is the tenth 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 Beachy Head Countryside Centre is wheelchair friendly with full access to the Shop, Downland Experience and the Sussex Gallery.
