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.

The only thing we see on the hills near us are things like the Getty Center and the HOLLYWOOD sign, so it was a rare treat to be driving from York to Thirsk to the World of James Herriot, look up, and see this lovely huge white horse against the green Yorkshire hillside. Time didn't allow for a stop, but... More

I didn't have a chance to hike right up to it. Go in the late morning or afternoon when it's warmer!

What a wonderful place to visit: there is so much to see and do. The road up the escarpment is spectacular and so is the view from ther top. A new walk has been created leading to a vantage point where you can see across the Vale of York to the Pennines, subject to the weather conditions. There are many... More

Didn't know anything about Sutton Bank but had a couple of hours free before a pub tea so headed that way. The visitors centre car park is pay and display and we couldn't see what the attraction was and as we didn't have any change for the machine headed to a picnic spot marked near the gliding club opposite.

We went for a family walk with 3 children aged 4,7 & 12 plus 2 dogs We took the nature trail path as we thought the children would love it. They did! Just be warned it's a steep path and very muddy at times. Good walking boots, walking pole and light refreshments are a must. On your return be sure... More

good parking and good cafe, then the walks, they are ideal for disabled and those with limited abilities. The paths are good especially round to the left (looking west) and you can walk round to stand on the path above the White Horse, circular walks are possible with minimal walking on the busy Scarborough road.The views are best in winter...

We spent all day walking the hiking trail around the white horse, and it was a highlight of our four day visit to the Yorkshire Moors. The trails are in perfect condition, and the climb up Sutton Bank is well worth the effort!
