You can park your cark next to the road passing the White Horse hill. It is difficult to find a clear path up the hill (so I guess there are many options) but take care not to walk on the White Horse itself! The views from the top of the hill are stunning except for the horse itself- it looks... More

Parking is easy you have a lower car park and if you follow the winding road up passed the lower mound you will find another higher car park. Many gravel paths on slopes so be careful. Amazing views. Great for children running around grass areas and kite flying. Check out ruin remains and of course the whit horse. Don't forget... More

This is one of the best places in the UK for a walk with fantastic scenery, a special sense of history (the horse and Uffington castle dates from 300AD), and just a great place to appreciate the english countryside. I do recommend a clear, not too windy day, (we were lucky), and I suspect it might be more crowded on... More

Spectacular views and lovely fresh air. Great place for a Sunday stroll. Nice country pub near by. If you enjoy a walk then this is the place, not to far from the city, but definitely need a car . You can push a pushchair, but its hard going as its hilly and grassed . Lovely country villages close by. Ca... More

The Uffington white horse is located just outside Swindon and just into Oxfordshire. I used to visit this place as both a young lad, with my mates, and as a teenager. I love the history associated with the hill, the carving of the horse, Dragon Hill (which sits between the main road and the white horse) and the local pub... More

Striking landmark, ideally it would be best viewed from the air. Which is strange considering those that created it were land bound folk. Fantastic views and great place for a walk on a sunny day. The ridgeway runs right alongside the site. Also nearby are uffington castle and Waylands Smithy.

How can it be anything other than excellent? It's a one off and seriously worth a short walk up a windy hill (in february make that a freezing cold walk) You can no longer stand in the horses eye (which I did 20 years ago - not sure if you were supposed to do it then) and it was smaller... More

Can park nearby but the White Horse is difficult to see in its entity and probably best seen from nearby Uffington village

Eveny if you aren't a huge Terry Pratchett fan who has reread the Tiffany Aching books several times, you will still be awestruck by this prehistoric monument and the other early ruins and gorgeous scenery that surround it.
