Seven Sisters Country Park Education Centre

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.

The Park

Seven Sisters Country Park is 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 was established in 1971 and is now managed by East Sussex County Council. It has a wonderful range of habitats including grassland, woodland, wetland, and coastal and marine where a whole 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 Forest Enterprise, 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. Parking is available for coaches on the Southern (seaward) side of the A259. There are indoor facilities in one of the old barns and public toilets on site. There is also a visitor centre at Exceat.
