Great to see up close!

We visited the Uffington horse on a freezing, grey and windy afternoon, and it was still packed with people. One side of the horse was fenced off to prevent damage to it, but... read more

We visited the Uffington horse on a freezing, grey and windy afternoon, and it was still packed with people. One side of the horse was fenced off to prevent damage to it, but there were still kids and dogs walking all over the chalk parts of the horse, which was frustrating to see. Glad we saw it, but I probably... More

A walk of about half a mile from the free car park to the horse is a pleasant strell. The view from the hill is terrific. There is also a long barrow and an old iron age fort on the hill and is also worth a look.

Visited here on one the hottest days of the year, but because you are so high up the breeze helped keep us all cool. There are some steep parts in places so be careful, but the views are truly stunning. It was hard to get a clear view of the horse, and the car park was very littered as there... More

This ancient chalk marking edged by lush green grass sits high on the hill at the head of a glacial scraped valley, between Wantage and Swindon - south of the B4057. The famous middle England marking is wedged between Dragon Hill and the iron age fortification of Uffington castle (BC 300 - AD 43) and in truth really cannot be... More

Walked up the hill to see Iron Age White horse carved in the hill. Close up you can't see the whole of it but you get a feel for the wonder of its presence, still there after over 1500 years. Fantastic views, from the top

Great walk up from britchcoombe campsite, through the woods and along the field. A fair steep walk up, 2 year old managed most of it. Fun coming down the other side. Stunning views.

The more you know beforehand, the more impressive the site. It's a pleasant walk through a sheep-filled field. It is amazing to think of how many thousands of years ago the horse was created. I think it is wonderful that it is maintained and accessable.

We stopped off for dinner and had a lovely 3 course meal for 4 of us and the price was very reasonable. Very nice cheese board!

At nearly 3000 + yrs old it's one of the oldest bit of massive graffiti in the United Kingdom. It simple match-stick sweeping lines are an amazing abstract way of depicting a horse. The artist/s really knew what they needed to do to convey the imagine of a horse (some disagree about it being a horse) in so few lines.... More

Lovely day out. Wonderful legends to the area such as the horse coming alive every so often to feed from the Manger and St George was supposed to have slayed the dragon here. About 1.5 miles from the horse is an old long barrow called Walands' Smithy.
