Sometimes do a circular walk around the hill . This whole area is magical early in the morning especially when there has been a sharp frost . From the top you can see for miles and there are acres of space to run , play and fly kites . Shame about having to pay for the parking though

White horse hill is a beautiful place. You can see for miles from the top of the barrow. Great place for kite flying and escaping.

Climb the hill and you can see expansive beautiful views of the rolling british countryside, lovely on a summers evening with a picnic. You can also walk up to the chalk carvings themselves. Disappointed to see a review not far below where this attraction has been criticized for a lack of modern facilities as in my opinion it would be... More

Although the weather wasn't kind we enjoyed the walk up the steep hill from the car park. Decent views. Stylistic horse. Near to Uffington castle hill to see afterwards.

Although it may take some navigating skills to find this place it is more than worth the effort. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the day walking these amazing 6,000 y/o monuments. The hill consists of the White Horse, Dragon Hill, The Ridgeway, Uffington Castle and Wayland's Smithy. The paths are well maintained and there is a very nice picnic... More

The view from the White Horse is stunning and there are bridlepaths and byways to get you there. Have spent many happy times here with family and friends.

Impossible to get a good view of this. I was expecting there to be a decent viewing area, but spent ages trecking round it, trying to see it properly, with no success. Also have to pay to park in the car park (unless National Trust member), and no facilities there - no toilets, cafe, shop, etc.
