First thing to say is that you won't see the White Horse properly from the hill itself. Naturally you have to be well away from it to see it all. There are spectacular views over the Vale of the White Horse from the top of the hill and the car park makes a great starting point for any number of... More

We went hours out of our way to see the White Horse only to be disappointed. I wish somewhere in all the information I read before we went, the most important piece that you can't see the entire horse, would be somewhere. Don't get me wrong-the views are spectacular, and the hikes are great but if you come solely to... More

The White Horse Hill was originally a fort along the route from Avebury for about 80 miles of footpath. It takes the foot traveller through various counties and passes Wantage from where King Alfred rallied his troops. Villages en route pass where the Blowing stone used to call up the troops can still be seen. The views from where stands... More

Lovely place to go for a Sunday walk to burn of a roast dinner! Not too strenuous, only difficult bit is walking up the hill which takes about 10 minutes max. Interesting history so worth a visit.

The Uffington White Horse is of Bronze Age era and is one of the most imposing of the horses in this part of England. Follow the signs for the White Horse and you will reach a tree shaded gravel car park. There is no charge for entry so you come and go as you please. Walk along the wild flower... More

We walked up on a Sunday and it was beautiful, the views are amazing! However if you are hoping for a peaceful time I would suggest going in the week as at the weekends it can get very busy. It was great watching the model planes and kites being flown and lots of families just enjoying the fresh air. We... More

Interesting both for the lovely views, and the amazing horse outline. Fun for the kids to work out what each bit is!

We visited the White Horse on a very windy day but the experience was superb. We also visited Dragon Hill at the same time and we were almost blown off the top. The White Horse is very atmospheric and the views from above the horse are fantastic. We combined this with a walk along the Ridgeway.
