We weren't overly impressed by this attraction, perhaps the local tourists have more familiarity with the legends, etc. that would make this a worthwhile stop.

Lovely walk round the valley

The giant is an iconic site for Dorset

The car park by the giant is a good starting point that offers a range of walks from 1 to about 5 miles

Apart from look at and photograph, there is an information board in the viewing area which is not really in depth.
But, hey, its free and took 10 minutes.

Trip to see the giant
Aug 2021 • Family
What really makes the Cerne giant great is all the local pubs, memorabilia and businesses that surround him. We saw a van with him on the side, there’s a tearoom in Cerne Abbas that has meals named after him, restaurants displaying him and it’s really heartening to see how the community has embraced him as their piece of history. The actual giant is quite hard to see from anywhere but the viewpoint which provides good information about him. The walks that are in the surrounding area are great, and Cerne Abbas itself is a wonderful little village. Worth a visit if you throw in some walks in the countryside and the village too.

Slightly underwhelmed
Aug 2021 • Friends
Hard to see the Giant from any angle including the viewing point. We walked around the Giant with our friends, their grandkids and our dog. It’s a push and you need sturdy shoes. The flora and fauna are diverse and worth taking the time to spot. The Giant however, isn’t visible from the top or sides. You do get a sense of history and the walk through the Abbey and town of Cerne Abbas is scenic.

History interesting but needs a trim
Jul 2021 • Couples
Parked in the village and walked up to the site, only to find it fenced off. We scrambled up the bank to reach the top of the hill, and were met with an excellent view. It's not a suitable climb for those who struggle at hiking. We then visited the viewing area, and were slightly disappointed, the grass on which there was sheep grazing it was too long to make out the detail of the Giant. It's history was interesting.

Thought it would more impressive

Strolled along from the village to the main viewpoint where the local explanatory signage was good. But the giant was lacking some of the white outlines which meant it was less impressive than we had expected

Interesting And Curious Mural

Glad to see this up close after our Minterne Garden’s visit which is nearby.

Quite a curious thing this giant on it’s origin and history which is pretty vague but interesting to stop and have a look anyway.
