It was a great experience visiting a pre-historical site that is quiet and peaceful. There are not much facilities (in fact almost no facilities), but just a hike up a gentle hill. However, it was a wonderful experience for my family as we enjoyed the view of Oxfordshire at its best, with the cool and gentle breeze (we went in... More

My family (3 boys aged 8,6,4, husband and golden retriever) and I walk up White Horse Hill regularly. Most recently we visited with relatives who had come to stay. We have done the climb in all weathers and there's no doubt a fine summer day makes the walk. Beware the windy days - it's pretty cold ! It's a lovely... More

Impressive bronze age landmark, high on a hill giving great views of this lovely countryside, rolling green hills, villages, geologic formations. This is the Uffington White Horse, well-cared for by local people now, who sign up to volunteer for work days when encroaching vegetation and such is cut back and history preserved. Just a bit further uphill from the horse... More

Able to absorb large numbers of visitors, there is a beautiful 360 degree view from the top. You can, on a good day, see six counties from here. An ice cream van may be in the car park if you are lucky.

Went with our 4 children. So gorgeous to see the White Horse and the lovely walk to it and back again from the Car Park. Set in rolling hills.

The Bronze-Age Uffington White Horse is a must vist attraction when in the area. Whether out for a drive, going for a walk or an ambitious cycle ride, getting to the top of White Horse Hill is well worth the effort. The views over the Thames Valley and the surrounding villages are stunning and on a clear day you can... More

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.
