We came to the White Horse whilst staying in Yorkshire. The area is stunning and there's a lovely walk from the car park up to the horse which our dog loved! Great landmark to visit for great views, the locals should be proud!

we did one of the many walks at Sutton Bank recently. It was a very hot & humid day but we enjoyed the walk. The views from here are amazing. Well worth a visit.
