Extensive building works are due to start on site in July 2021 and scheduled to finish in January 2022, therefore unfortunately we are unable to offer school visits during this time. We are hoping the building works will be complete by mid January and we will be in a position to take bookings again.
We will update our website when bookings at Seven Sisters open again for school visits.
We are sorry that we can’t welcome you during this time and hope to see you again in the future.
The Sussex Wildlife Trust is bringing over 30 years experience of providing environmental education to Seven Sisters Country Park. Within this unique landscape school children will never forget a visit here.
Seven Sisters Country Park is an incredible place to visit and a designated site of Special Scientific Interest within the South Downs National Park and Heritage Coast. In addition, the 700 acres of downland, coast and riverine estuary has been declared an Environmentally Sensitive Area.
The Country Park also backs onto the expansive Friston Forest, in all we have a wonderful range of habitats including, woodland (deciduous and evergreen), chalk grassland, river, saltmarsh, shingle coast and marine areas where an extensive range of geographical and environmental studies can be undertaken.
The Sussex Wildlife Trust, in partnership with the South Downs National Park and with kind permission of East Sussex County Council and the Forestry Commission, employs a team of leaders to run educational visits to Seven Sisters Country Park.
The entrance to the Park is on the A259 at Exceat between Newhaven and Eastbourne. We have exclusive coach parking available only with your booking in the Northern (forest side) of the A259 behind the Visitors Centre where we can significantly reduce road crossings. There are indoor facilities in our historic Education Barn and public toilets on site.
Children have an exhilarating and hands on day with our team and experience the wonders of our very special location
