Iron age hill fort.......
Aug 2021 • Family
Uffington Castle is an Iron age defensive fort made up of a flat area of occupation surrounded by the remains of a defensive ditch and earthwork ramparts. No structures remain but the location at the summit of Whitehouse Hill offers great views of the surrounding countryside. The White Horse chalk figure is on the same site so can be visited together. There is no entrance fee, but the nearby National Trust car park charges £4.00 for the day. Well worth a visit !

Nice walk with fantastic views. Dont expect to see much of the White Horse
Jul 2021 • Family
We visited here with our 4 year old and 18 month old this week and spent just over an hour here.
We parked in the National Trust car park which cost £2 for 2 hours i think it was. You can pay by coin or card (online).
The walk to the White Horse and Castle is about half a mile long. We were here to see the White Horse but you see very little of it. You need to see it from the air to see it properly. Regardless, the weather was great and the walk was nice and had stunning views.
I love my history so i still enjoyed the visit, although it was slightly underwhelming

Lovely countryside

Decent walk from National Trust car park towards the White Horse. The castle has no ruins just a high grass area over a large ditch surrounded by sheep but great views all round.

No ruins !

Uffington Castle is at the top of White Horse Hill. There are no ruins, just the ditch around where castle was.

Inside the moat is a large area of grassland, which gives an indication of the size of the fort that was here.

The views from the castle are super.

Not really a castle

If you were expecting to see a castle then you might be disappointed. All that remains is the footprint of the castle into the hills. But great views.

Large grassy circle with good views
Oct 2019
You can see why this was chosen as a spot for a hill fort. There are good views in all directions ( on a clear day).There is not much visible now apart from the earthen ramparts. We walked here from Uffington, but there is a car park nearby for those who feel less energetic.It's a lovely place to come to on a sunny day.

Out in the Middle of NO where

It was a quick trip and an interesting walk/hike - spent about a hour or so there. The English Heritage book provided the historical information that made this stop more interesting.

Alongside the Ridgeway
Sep 2019
We walked along the Ridgeway from Ashbury (where we were staying) and it was great to think we were walking in the footsteps of our ancestors. You can clearly see the remains of the iron Age Fort from the Ridgeway path and is even more impressive when you come up alongside it. There is an access gate from the Ridgeway and you can walk along the edge of the fort and get fantastic views from the top of the White Horse, Dragon Hill and the surrounding countryside.

Lovely views and good for walking
Aug 2019 • Couples
This is a nice place to go for a walk and fly a kite. It’s right next to white horse hill so you would do them both together really as they are joined.
It’s not so much a castle as a big hill with a circle at the top where you can make out where the walls would have been. Although no ruins.
I would say it’s better to visit if you are local rather than coming from afar.
