In 1902, the Beachy Head Lighthouse was brought into service at the base of the cliffs after Belle Tout was abandoned in 1899. It took two years to complete and required 3,660 tons of Cornish granite to construct the tower.

Beachy Head Lighthouse was automated in June 1983 and the lighthouse keepers were no longer needed. The light was converted to solar power in 2011 and further upgrades to the control and the solar power system were carried out in 2018.

Our Seven Sisters and Birling Gap cruise… only better…!

Similarly, the trip takes us across Seaford Bay, passing Seaford Head before reaching the Coastguard Cottages at Cuckmere Haven. We’ll then continue along the Sussex Heritage Coast towards Birling Gap and the Belle Toute Lighthouse.  However, the excitement doesn’t end there…!

We’ll then venture even further east to the base of the world famous Beachy Head Lighthouse.  It lies approximately seven miles to the east of our home in Newhaven Port and stands an impressive 33m tall. The iconic red and white stripes look resplendent when close up.

There’ll be plenty of time for photos before heading home a little further out to sea.  In the summer months, we have regular sightings of Harbour Porpoise and occasionally Common Seals close to the Beachy Head Lighthouse itself.
