We took the gentle walk from Sutton Bank National Park centre to the top of the White Horse chalk figure. A gentle hike suitable for our own fit octagenarien along a surfaced path. Views were spectacular across the Vale of York and the path is lined with gorgeous wild flowers. You can also watch the gliders taking off and the... More

We went to the White Horse to have a better look at it but it was in a very poor condition. the best part of going to have a closer look a the White Hosre was to find a private Airfield with Gliders at the top of the hill witch is open to the public.

Enjoyed the amazing country side and hiking paths. Wild flowers were profuse and beautiful, noticed many butter cups. Spent time at the glider club while in the area.

This is a beautiful area to visit, the views are amazing, lots of great walks for all levels and bike rides from the car park, the red bike ride was tough, downhill on way out and then back up to carpark on way back, gorgeous ride though, great scenery, there is a lovely looking tearoom on the route, but is...

The walk from the information centre on Sutton Bank is very pleasant with wonderful views. But we do not recommend going down the steps to the White Horse parking lot. From the top you can see the Horse's head (sort of) and once you get down below you can see at bit more but the legs are mainly hidden by... More

Nice walk, well laid out paths with lovely views. The red route take you along the top of the cliff and also through the lower wood with lots of wild flowers. There were a few very steep areas of path, but the majority of the path was very manageable.

Several ways to see this, you can drive to the carp park underneath the horse, car park is free. You can then walk up the 125 or so steps to get above it for the amazing views. A second option is to drive past the first car park, to the top of the steep bank and there is a small... More
