Dated to about 1400 BC, this mysterious figure is carved into a chalk hillside just below an Iron Age hill fort and can only be seen in its entirety by air.

Visited White Horse Hill for a family outing with our young children. Wasn't sure what to expect, but delighted to find that White Horse Hill is not just the White Horse of Uffington carved in the turf, but also Dragon Hill and Uffington Castle the...More

A good walk to blow away the cobwebs and work off breakfast and the views of the surrounding area from the hill side are great. Unfortunately the horse was fenced off to preserve it from erosion so we were limited in what we could see...More

We are National Trust members so parking was free and we thought it was worth a visit as we were passing. Apparently White Horse Hill is the oldest chalk figure in the country dating back to the Iron Age approximately 3000 years ago. The walk/climb/incline...More

This is a lovely walk with great views and very manageable for smaller children also. Dogs need to be kept on a lead in most parts and what we found quite irritating was that there were no dog bins or rubbish bins anywhere. Also no...More

If you enjoy walking, this is a great place to hike. The chalk White Horse is an amazing feature and the site is very close to the Ridgeway paths, and just over a mile from the long barrow at Waylands Smithy (well worth the walk)....More

Great location to walk to from any of the surrounding villages or a short stroll from the National Trust car park (payment necessary) which saves walking up the hill! Superb views north over the Vale and usually several red kites circling above.

Brilliant view to the north of Oxfordshire from the Downs and the long distance footpath the Ridgeway. A good car park owned by the National Trust is a pay one about 800 metres from the summit to the hill. The white horse needs to be...More

The family went yesterday. It was absolutely stunning. Beautiful landscape. Only bad side is it's hard to see the whole house unless you have a drone.

I definitely recommend taking the walk out to see the White Horse at Uffington. We parked at the official National Trust car park and were given very helpful directions by the NT lady on site of where to walk. It's about 1/2 mile across gently...More

With difficulty. I saw a bus stop in a nearby village, which appears to be the Saturday-only X47 from Wantage. I'd personally recommend renting/bringing a bicycle and heading over from Swindon or Didcot, as the area is well... More

Basically there's a hill to walk around and look at. You can use it as a starting point for various long walks in the area, covering a lot of archaeological sites. The car park might have an ice cream van in it. The X47... More
