Fabulous open countryside and beautiful views. Fairly easy walk up from car park and well signposted. Enormous Iron Age fort and impressive chalk carving of stylized white horse even a Dragon Hill with stories of St George. We visited late afternoon with clouds rolling passed - no fun if you get caught in the rain! We were lucky and the... More

A straightforward walk over some well-maintained paths, with a superb panoramic view over the county. The horse itself is better in concept than practice, as it's rather difficult to get a good view compared to other chalk figures. Uffington Fort is impressively large, mind.

The walk to the horse went right through a sheep pasture and the sheep were curious but shy. The view was fantastic and the horse chalk design thoughtful. Very short hilly walks around the horse, barrow, and castle frame. I would do this again but try to find a good spot to get a photo of the full horse. The... More

Second time visiting the White Horse in recent years and if anything, enjoyed the visit even more this time. There is something remarkable about treading on the ground where ancient feet passed and just breathing in the history of the mysterious white chalk horse. Lots of speculation about why it exists but the only thing anyone seems to know for... More

The short hike up to the White Horse from the nearest car park affords stunning views of the surrounding area. Uffington Village itself pretty much embodies that highly overused "Q word". Obviously you can't tell that the horse is a horse from the hill where it is located. While I did a fair amount of hiking in attempt to find... More

We were walking on The Ridgeway and this was our first stop off point to stay the night in nearby Faringdon. The Hill is quite steep in places and offers great views of the countryside around. The actual white horse is quite hard to see unless you are miles away or in the air. Uffington Fort is a good place... More

Came out here after work tonight and really glad did. It's difficult to get a good view of the horse (not bad from Uffington), but the views of the countryside are dramatic and outstanding. You really get a sense that the landscape is both ancient and significant. The drive to the hill from Wantage is great fun (if you like... More

Lovely area to visit and was clean and tidy. Beautiful views. Stayed at The Fox & Hounds in Uffington only a couple of miles away

We though this was pretty cool. Be prepared to do a bit of walking through fields , and up a relatively steep hill. Hard to get the full effect , even from the "viewing platform". Most of these great photos you see are obviously from the air.
