National Trust Bounding up to Belle Tout, Sussex
A short breath-taking walk overlooking Beachy head and the spectacular white cliffs of Dover and Sussex.

National Trust’s Bounding up to Belle Tout walk in Sussex is stunning. It can be enjoyed whatever the season but mind the cliff edge and remember to have a cuppa in the cafe!

The walk starts in the National Trust car park where there are toilet facilities and then it strolls off up some steps onto the cliff edge. Straight away you have vast ocean views! The walk then takes you along the pathway up to Belle Tout, and you will see where the fencing has fallen away because of the eroding cliff edge. Walk to the left of this and around the building and meander down the hill taking a left at the bottom.

The last section of this walk is flat and takes you through meadows that are full of wild flowers in the Summer and grazing ponies in the Autumn. There is a young woodland that you pass through just before you make it back to the National Trust car park.
