A fantastic walk along the beach. Under the cliffs you go towards Rottingdean. It's stunning. It's a flat walk. The views are beautiful. Really worth some of your time to take this walk.

We discovered this walk after looking for something different to do during the holidays and stared at the Marina and ended under the cliff at Mollys cafe in Rottingdean. We then retuned along the cliff top and we’re rewarded with some amazing views. Maybe next...More

Beautiful walk under chalk cliffs from Brighton Marina to the historic village of Rottingdean where Rudyard Kipling once lived. In summer its fun to explore the rocks and swim in the English Channel when the tide is in.

A really easy flat walk with fabulous views with the back drop of towering white cliffs. Of course it is a nicer walk on a sunny day, but is fun to go when the wind is gale force and the waves are crashing over the...More

The walk is lovely, easy, good for cycling and walking away form the crowded roads. you can admire the coastline and jump in the water in the hot sunny days. Cafe mid-way. It's a lovely side of Brighton which is nice and peaceful enough ..

A great walk, offering flat, predictable terrain, great views of the sea, wonderful white cliffs towering overhead. Perfect for buggies, wheelchairs, scooters, bikes, trikes. We walked from Brighton seafront, following it along to the marina, then followed the marked pedestrian route to the undercliff walk....More

Great all year round, but important to check that the waves are not too lively against the wall. It is a great walk just as the light is fading - great sunsets on the Saltdean to Rottingdean stretch going west. Good place for an undisturbed...More

This is an alternative to or an addition to walking along 'the prom, Brighton's iconic seafront'. The Undercliff is accessible to pushchairs/wheelchairs, is more about enjoying the sea, the birds, the rock pools and a leisurely stroll compared to the hustle and bustle of the...More

Yes, the under cliff is open everyday. Please be careful especially during the winter and windy conditions, as the waves can come in over the wall. During the summer months it is a great walk, also spring and autumn. I like... More
