Seven Sister Cliffs, Sussex, England

The Seven Sisters are gleaming white cliffs, visible from miles at sea and terminating in a series of gently undulating chalk Downs. I've chosen them among my personal selection of the UK's Seven Wonders because they are so beautiful and so unmistakably British.
Some countries rise out of the sea from gently sloping beaches. Others have mountains that march right to the water's edge. But England meets the English Channel with abrupt ranges of white chalk cliffs. Nature seems to mirror at least a thousand years of prickly relations - as though England has been been snapped off Europe like a piece of rock candy.
The hills behind the cliffs may seem to roll softly - but don't be fooled. The Seven Sisters constitute one of the most challenging stretches of The South Downs Way
