This is, I believe, the original of many white horses. It is well maintained and a lovely spot to walk. There are other attractions nearby so do a search on Google Maps first.

If you are a National Trust member, you can park for free in the car park. From there, it is an invigorating walk up to the White Horse. You won't get a good view of the whole horse from there, but you do get up close and personal to it. It's a great place to enjoy the view, fly a... More

A unique attraction, that adds a little more to an average little walk into the meadows of England. Ideally find a spot spot where you can back at the horse so you can appreciate the full view.

Drove up there one Sunday with friends. Very fresh, good views, good ice cream vans. A great place to go to get away from the cities.

We walked up from Woolstone - a pleasant, quite steep uphill walk - although there is also a large car park to the west of the horse. The horse if not that easily visible - you catch angles of it rather than a full-on view. But the whole area in which it's located is well worth a circular walk: up... More
