Seven Sisters Cliffs Weekender

Only 1.5 hours from London by train, this weekender will take you to a land of fresh air, epic landscapes and quirky seaside attractions. We'll be going to one of the most spectacular seascapes in Great Britain: the vertical drops surrounding Beachy Head and Seven Sisters, making for an extraordinary photography challenge. Utilising the expert skills of our landscape photography tutor, we'll also have a chance to photograph the quirky seaside town of Eastbourne. So join us for this epic clifftop weekender.
