We've all heard of the white cliffs of Dover, but the white cliffs of East Sussex are even more impressive. At 162 metres, Beachy Head is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain. Its sudden drop and sheer wall have made it an iconic image - not to mention the beautiful views across the English Channel. In fact, the name 'Beachy Head' has nothing to do with beaches: instead, it comes from the French beau chef meaning 'beautiful headland'. They were certainly right about that!

But it's not just a beautiful spot with picturesque views. This iconic headland has also been a stage for history. During the Nine Years' War, the so-called Battle of Beachy Head took place just off the coast in 1690. During WW1, German U-Boats sank 30 merchant ships between Beachy Head and Eddystone. And if that isn't exciting enough, it was here that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang flew for the very first time!

This design captures it all - the green of the grass, the white of the cliffs, the deep blue of the sea. Seagulls jostle overhead, and the red lighthouse towers over the waves - a beautiful scene to enjoy as you dry the dishes.

Half Panama organic bleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.

    Beachy Head Tea Towel

    These tea towels are of such good quality and capture so many iconic scenes that I can envisage giving a number of them as gifts (as well as keeping my own set!)

    Beautiful quality and design but maybe too nice to use?!
