Undercliff Walk, Brighton

(550+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail
Walk, cycle, and enjoy the sea air at Undercliff Walk, a popular scenic coastal walk stretching from Brighton Marina to Saltdean. This area is of special historical and geological interest, containing fossils of mammoths, woolly rhinos, and hippos. The iconic chalk and flint cliffs, which have become a symbol of East Sussex and Kent, are propped up by a concrete seawall. A broad promenade tops the wall, providing walkers with unobstructed views of the cliffs and the sea. The walk is about 4.8 km (3 mi) long, and passes through the picturesque village of Rottingdean, famous for its tea shops and small restaurants. On sunny days the glare from the cliffs can be quite intense, so don’t forget to bring your sunglasses. Put Undercliff Walk into our Brighton itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We have made a 2-week language course in Brighton with several classes of our school. Meanwhile, we are to the Devils Dyke with a teacher. We are driven by bus about 20 minutes out of town East and then walking back up to the Brighton marine. Some are already on the bus because they wanted to run not so far. You can take beautiful pictures, comes out time out of town and walk along the sea. There were not very many other people on the road, so it is also quiet (apart from the sound of the sea). Very much recommended.
