The kids loved this, super walk through lovely chalk downland flowers, fantastic views and you can actually access the white horse which is this day and age is quite something. Plenty of space to enjoy the countryside. Only downside is lack of a loo.

The horse itself was smaller than I had imagined but it still made for a nice walk with great views over the surrounding countryside. Note: Paid parking otherwise FREE

If you need to run off some kid or doggy energy this is a perfect spot. Rolling hills kept ours happy. The white horse is impressive. Nice to tie in with a visit to Uffington and the little old school house museum there.

Perfect for a summers day or a brisk winter walk. Try to choose a day that isn't windy as you'll be blown to bits! Great views across the county and lovely quaint villages in the area for pubs! The white horse itself is bizarre as it's not a traditional shape so well worth seeing. Can be seen best from the... More

There is an air of anticipation as you climb upthe hill to the designated carpark and set out across the downland grass with the panorama of Oxfordshire spread out below you. Suddenly you come upon the graceful,stylised Celtic shape of the horse cut into the chalk. Below you is Dragon Hill, where the grass never grows: legend has it that... More

we spent a few hours walking around this stunning area. there is a National Trust car park but it is in need of some toilets as we struggled finding anywhere to go to toilet. There is actually a toilet in Uffington in the village post office which although reluctant, they have to let you use if you tell them you... More

Visited on the drive back to Didcot from Oxford. I knew from reviews on here that it was impossible to see the horse but thought it would be nice to get a glimpse of part of it and a nice way to give a focus to our walk. We parked in the carpark nearby and I didn't mind the £2... More

We were in the area for a wedding and needed somewhere local for a chillout and this seemed perfect. There is a National Trust Car Park but as members of English Heritage it was free. The walk up to enable us to see the White Horse gave us a brilliant view of the surrounding countryside. We will never truely know... More

You have to pay to park which is a bit of a rip off considering your just going for a walk up a hill, but to be fair its a pretty cool hill to walk up, I mean if i could choose any hill to walk up this would definatley be in my top 5.
