we spent a few hours walking around this stunning area. there is a National Trust car park but it is in need of some toilets as we struggled finding anywhere to go to toilet. There is actually a toilet in Uffington in the village post office which although reluctant, they have to let you use if you tell them you... More

Visited on the drive back to Didcot from Oxford. I knew from reviews on here that it was impossible to see the horse but thought it would be nice to get a glimpse of part of it and a nice way to give a focus to our walk. We parked in the carpark nearby and I didn't mind the £2... More

We were in the area for a wedding and needed somewhere local for a chillout and this seemed perfect. There is a National Trust Car Park but as members of English Heritage it was free. The walk up to enable us to see the White Horse gave us a brilliant view of the surrounding countryside. We will never truely know... More

You have to pay to park which is a bit of a rip off considering your just going for a walk up a hill, but to be fair its a pretty cool hill to walk up, I mean if i could choose any hill to walk up this would definatley be in my top 5.

I loved the walk to the horse's ear but wished there had been an option to walk directly to what I imagine is a vantage point from which to view the whole horse... (If there was one we didn't see it). Lovely site, well kept and worth a visit.

Great for the views from here, take a walk to Wayland's Smithy too. Kite flying, running down the earthworks of an ancient fort, stand by the White Horse and wonder how and why it was made. Take a coat though it can be chilly even on a sunny day.

We travelled to a friend's wedding in the South and on the way home the following day, I planned a scenic detour to take in some sights that were otherwise too far from home to visit. White Horse Hill is maybe not the most obvious place to stop at, but we are very please we did. The car park is... More

One of the best views in Oxfordshire with an ancient chalk horse carving and fort/castle... what's not to like. The castle needs a bit of imagination... it's pretty much a circular defensive mound, so don't go expecting to see turrets.
