I am hoping to make a two-night trip to Eastbourne, to visit Beachy Head. I'll be accompanied by my wife and one-year old baby (most probably in a buggy). I'll take a train from London to Eastbourne, and from Eastbourne to Beachy Head I understand there is a bus service.

My questions are:

  1. Is Beachy Head child-friendly?
  2. The high-point of our visit will be the peak of Beachy Head, can I lug the buggy up to the peak?
  3. How long is the trip to the peak, if I decide to carry the baby in a sling/carrier?

According to the Beachy Head Peace Path brochure:

Trails suitable for people with impaired mobility, wheelchairs, mobility scooters and push chairs
The path is a firm and even surfaced track with no gates, stiles or steps.

The round trip path is 750 m in length, I can't imagine it would take more than an hour if you stop and smell the flowers.

I realised that there is an open-top bus (possibly City Sightseeing) that goes to the top. That would take a lot of work off me. – uXuf Mar 27 '14 at 12:00
