You are looking at the UK’s highest chalk sea cliff Beachy Head. This British beauty spot is a pleasant two-hour drive from London. Seven distinct hilltops, known as “The Seven Sisters,” comprise the silhouette of the cliffs and the stones get their bright white colour from the abundance of chalk on their surface.
This is one of Eastbourne’s most famous TV and film locations. The scene from James Bond movie, The Living Daylights, where a secret agent parachutes from a Land Rover was actually filmed off Beachy Head.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang also chose the famous cliffs for its car chase where the car drove off the cliff tops but then opened its wings to fly!
Some of the quidditch scences from Harry Potter – The Goblet of Fire were filmed here.
