Visitors can also enhance their visit to Beachy Head with our carefully selected range of books and nature watching guides, for children and adults, on a range of topics including the local area, nature and environment.” 

Products available to purchase include a unique range featuring incredible artwork by local artist Ellie Fryer, whose painted murals throughout the Beachy Head Story exhibition have been greatly influenced by the surrounding area; honey, jams and other produce from local, family run business Paynes Southdown Bee Farm and a variety of soaps and scented candles made locally and ethically.
