Haven Brow is the first of the Seven Sisters, a series of chalk hills and cliffs on the coastline in East Sussex. These hills are a popular tourist attraction, part of the South Downs National Park and the Seven Sisters Country Park. The first one is just east of Cuckmere Haven and they run east until the final hill descends to the Birling Gap. The Seven Sisters lie on the South Downs Way and are part of a popular, 13 mile, coastal walk from Seaford and Eastbourne.
The Seven SistersThe Seven Sisters, and the dips, or bottoms, between them are:
- Haven Brow (shown here) followed by Short Bottom.
- Short Brow followed by Limekiln Bottom.

- Brass Point followed by Gap Bottom.
- Flagstaff Point (and Flagstaff Brow) followed by Flagstaff Bottom.

These cliffs are continually eroding at about 40cm per year. Walkers are advised to take note that the cliffs can collapse without notice and not stray too close to the edge. Access to the beaches below the cliffs is available at Hope Gap Beach, Cuckmere Haven and the Birling Gap. Other notable landmarks include the Belle Tout Lighthouse Hotel and Beachy Head, the tallest coastal cliff in Britain.
