THE SEVEN Sisters cliffs has been voted in the top ten of the nation’s favourite views.

The area was listed, along with Stonehenge at sunset and Glastonbury Tor, in the public’s top winter wonderland views.

The survey, conducted by OscarUK.co.uk, the leading concessions website for over 50s revealed the areas they could imagine for a winter walk.

Peter Simpson, managing director at OscarUK, said, “Boxing Day and the days before New Year are known to be the busiest for walking as people take a break from the festivities, turn their backs on the busy high street and head for the peace of a winter walk.

“We asked people to tell us their idea of a wonderful winter view when out walking and it’s not surprising that some of the most beautiful landscapes encompassing lakes, coast and hills, were among the top ten.”

The survey also found that as families cut back on lavish spending at Christmas, they planned to stay home and enjoy winter walks with family and friends.

More than 55 per cent planned to go winter walking during the Christmas and New Year holidays to spend time with family and friends, and to save money.

The Seven Sisters Cliffs ranked eighth on the list.

The line up was:

1) Lake Windermere, Cumbria

2) St Ives Harbour, Cornwall

3) Bamburgh Castle and the Northumberland coastline

4) Malvern Hills, Worcestershire

5) Upper Swaledale, North Yorkshire

6) Stonehenge at sunset

7) Glastonbury Tor

8) The Seven Sisters cliffs, East Sussex

9) Loch Coruisk, Skye

10) Hadrian’s Wall
