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.

It's definitely one of those places that you can skip if it's foggy or rainy, as you just can't see very much at all. On a nice day, it's a very nice walk and such an interesting and different historical site.

What a fantastic and timeless idol of our ancient countryside and country. The fact that this icon has lasted and been lovingly taken care of speaks volumes of its importance culturally and historically. Set in the windswept hillsides of Oxfordshire this is well worth a...More

There are two car park areas - the main park is to the west of the white horse and then there is a disabled parking area just above the horse, much closer. As others have said, you won't see the horse close up (unless you...More

Unfortunately there was some heavy fog that somewhat spoiled our experience. The horse was roped off so we couldn't get very close and the fog made it difficult to see anything other than the parts that we were close to. Viewing from a distance was...More

The horse is not really visible from up close - better from a distance, when you drive by. However, the walk up there is really beautiful regardless. In late spring you have all these beautiful flowers and the views are stunning on clear days. Parking...More

The clouds came down as did the rain when we visited this site. Nevertheless, we visited both the white horse and castle and enjoyed the fresh air. The clouds did allow us a glimpse of the horse, but not the views of the countryside on...More

The walk was pleasant as was the views but the horse was easy to define on the ground, disappointing. So we enjoyed the views and walk, parking was limited as was access.

A great piece of historic art that must have taken quite a lot of labour by hand, use of primitive tools and commitment to complete. The view of the surrounding landscapes from the north side of the White Horse is absolutely beautiful and therapeutic. Only...More

The White Horse is something I’ve read about many times over the years, so it’s great to have been able to visit. The walk in is very easy through a field of sheep (no toilets in the car park, in case you wonder!) and you...More

While undoubtably very significant historically, up close it's a little disappointing as you can't actually see the full outline of the White Horse. The figure is fenced off to avoid erosion and the best you can see from the viewpoint is a few curved white...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
