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.

You can see for miles - that's always a massive tick for me when I go walking. There's a good picture/sign that points out of the landmarks. There's plenty of walking to do too! I must admit I would never push a wheelchair around this site - I actually said that while I walking towards the horse. It may seem... More

Unfortunately unless you have a helicopter it's kind of lost on you. However it is a lovely walk in the English countryside in what for us was a perfect day! TIP: There are no facilities so make sure you take what you need.

I don't know where you're supposed to view it from. Maybe from the plains to the northwest. You can get a partial view from the flat-topped Dragon's Hill below it but really the best thing is climbing the hill to enjoy the spectacular views and serene air, then going on to the ancient fort.
