The White Horse, Uffington Castle, The Ridgeway and Wayland's Smithy are all close by and make this place fantastic. We revisit whenever we are in the area. Love it here.

Beautiful spot

Beautiful spot, great place to walk and relax. Dog loves it here, the ridgeway is a great place to go in each direction, nice that there is the old castle on top (obviously nothing left now)

White Horse and Dragon's Hill
Sep 2021 • Couples
No toilets available and so I had to get back into the car and drive to the white horse pub!
Whilst the walk to see the white horse was very scenic I was disappointed not to be able to see the white horse in its entirety. A blue rope prevented you from getting near to it. I also walked to Dragon's Hill to get a good view of my surroundings which was nice. The steps can be tricky to negotiation as they were very deep with lots of loose gravel on them, handrails would have helped my partner who is partially sighted. It would have been nice to have some more seating available, there was one picnic table in the car park.

Iron age chalk figure....
Aug 2021 • Family
Whitehouse Hill in Uffington is the site of the famous White Horse chalk figure. The figure itself was fenced off when we visited, but there is a great circular walk from the National Trust car park that takes in Uffington Castle (iron age hill fort), the White Horse itself walking from above the figure and down its left hand side to Dragon Hill and the Manger below. A very good couple of hours with the benefit of being free (other than the £4.00 daily car park fee). Well worth a visit !

Don't take a picnic!
Aug 2021
We visited today and were unimpressed. The car park was expensive and offered no toilets or any other amenities. The nearest loo is apparently at the local pub in the village below and then in Wantage which is miles away! We took a picnic as this area is mentioned on the web as a nice place to eat, what a let down. We were dodging the cattle poop like landmines and the nearest bench had the stench of a rotting manure pile. After a short cold walk around not seeing the horse at all, we decided to go back to the car and eat our food there staring at the stinging nettles.

Great history

I've wanted to visit this site since I was a child and finally got my wish. Go to the National trust car park and it's a gentle walk across fields to the Fort and horse. The best views are from underneath as you lose sight when standing on top Great part of our heritage. Recommended.

Ariel view ?

Not sure if we’re missing something? You totally can’t see the horse at all?! We parked in the car park, followed the signs and arrived above it. I think you maybe need to bring your helicopter?

Pleasant walk swerving the sheep droppings but this is only to be expected in the countryside. Wonder if we are allowed to collect for the garden

Hill walk
May 2021 • Couples
On a day off we came down to white horse hill and uffington Castle. We got plenty of exercise walking the step yet scenic hills but it was worth it for the beautiful breathtaking views and abundance of wildlife. We walked down the ridgeway to wayland smithy ancient longbarrow. A bit of a trek but worth the visit. Usually an icecream van in the carpark in afternoon if you have cash. Parking is not free either. A nice day out though.

Free adventures here!!!

Even on a freezing cold day, with mist threatening to ruin the view, this was such a magical place to visit! We parked for free nearer to Waylands Smithy then walked the ridgeway to the hill. Plenty of space for social distancing!!!
