Beachy Head – day trip to suicide favourite

Beachy head copyLiving in London makes it difficult to leave for a day trip. This is due the enormous traffic heading out of the city on Friday/Saturday and returning Sunday. I suppose this must be true for any metropolis. If we decided to go south we had two options Blackwall Tunnel or city centre. Both not great. One might think it would be better to take the train and rent a car. Maybe quicker but way more expensive.

Anyway Beachy Head is one of the most distinctive features of English coast. The cliff there is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 metres. The height and availability make it amazing spot to admire the landscape, dramatic cliffs and waves but also one of the most notorious suicide spots in the World. According to BBC there are an estimated 20 deaths a year at Beachy Head.

I loved the lighthouse the most. White and red stood out with colour against the white cliffs. Lighthouses in the sea or on small deserted rock islands always make me wonder how does it feel being inside with the eternity of water underlying alloy.

When we were leaving London it was nice and sunny. This was the first time I was going on a trip in convertible. I can’t say I felt like movie star, but my best friend at the back of the car definitely had wind in her hair.  The day turned out as very windy and at least it made one person happy. Yes, the person that took the kite with him.

Anyway enjoy the gallery and if you are living in London or visiting UK is worth while to take a trip to Beachy Head in my opinion. Just a note. The lamb was so cute…
