If you are at a loose end end in the area the walk along the ridge of Sutton bank is well worth it. Takes about an hour or so and the views are fantastic. Don't expect to see a gret view of the white horse because you literally walk past what appears to be a large patch of gravel. You... More

If you park in the car park just below the White Horse you have a short but stiff walk to it. Alternatively you could walk along from the Visitor Centre at the top of Sutton Bank. It is huge once you get up to it and slightly anticlimactic. Probably best seen from a distance, but the view from the top... More

We visited here to blow out the cobwebs after googling places to walk in North Yorkshire. Fabulous location with views that will make you reach for the camera on your phone! Lovely and clean with clear pathways and a nice visitor centre. Highly recommended for walkers of all ages.

I have already reviewed the walk along the escarpment and the views to be had in my review of the Sutton Bank Visitor Centre and won't repeat myself at length here, save to repeat that on a clear day when the gliders are flying and you have much of North Yorkshire spread before you in all her glory, this is...

Alf Wight (author of the Herriot Vet series) thought so, and I would agree. Here the North Yorkshire Moors National Park tumbles from the Hambleton edge down to the Vales of Mowbray and York. From the glacial sandstone escarpment, the visitor has spectacular, uninterrupted views across Yorkshire countryside to the Pennines on a clear day. Park at the White Horse... More

I have walked from Sutton Bank to the White Horse many times, which is a nice, flat, easy walk. It's something everyone should do at least once before they die, because the view is utterly wonderful.

Great for just a visit or to start one of the many walks. The car park is free. Car security is needed.

Spent 4 hours exploring and walking. Breathtaking area. The White Horse path is an easy hike with firm paths. Sutton Bank offered gorgeous views, and the lovely Whitestone Cliffs.
