HBH experience fantastic views

Stop off and check out the amazing view from Sutton Bank. We were lucky to see the views on an extremely clear day and in brilliant sunshine. Don't miss it!

Stood on James Herriot's favorite view of Yorkshire and it is worth the short walk from the car park. This is just a fabulous spot and should be visited as a must.

Sorry but apart from some stunning views I felt it was a waste of time as you practically walk on the horse & cannot see it!!

Best seen for afar..Carr Lane, Kilburn is the spot I recommend. However the views from the top are worth the steep steps th ascend from the bottom car park. Its a 20 minute walk from the Sutton Bank National Park, and can be combined with a trip to Lake Gilmore too.

I have made many visits here from being very small, and it has always held a special place in my heart as my grandad used to reapply the chalk surface from time to time. Always used to love running up and down the steps and enjoying the breathtaking view from the top. Stunning scenery, a hike up the steps from... More

The views of the horse are best from the very beautiful village of Kilburn. Then walk up the steps to Sutton Bank to enjoy the very lovely views from the top. This is not to be missed if you are travelling in this area.

The hike to and from the White Horse was fine - nice scenery and and easy walk well worth the effort. We walked right next to, and could've walked ON the white horse. This however was the problem, as we couldn't tell that it was anything from so close. You'd need to see it from a distance, and this hike... More

Two options here... park at the bottom and walk up to the horse (steep climb up) or park to the visitors center at the top of Sutton Bank (parking fee applies) and take the well made path along the cliff top to the horse....latter being the one to do! The path passes the aerodrome used by the local flying club,... More
