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.

My parents live about 20 minutes away from White Horse Hill, so we decided that before we went back home to America we would spend the day there. First off, you have to pay for parking it is £2 for 2 hours or £4 for...More

Best views around the plan and loads of walking. Postcode showed in National Trust was a close location and not the exact parking, so if you follow the post code in National Trust, make sure you follow the road signs.

I'd seen pictures, and driven past some of the other chalk sculptures in the region, but I'd always wanted to see the Uffington White Horse, up close, in person. The first thing is to notice that it's on the interior of a partially bowl-shaped hillside....More

The hill is damaged constantly by the dry weather and human touch so twice a year they have these chalking reservation projects that allow public to join. The hill itself is a lovely place for a walk and u can see hints of the horse...More

I climbed the hill to see the white horse but, although the fact that I have a fantastic view from the top, I couldn't see the horse. They closeded the way to the horse. So, I tried to see from the road, that was nice...

Amazingly we had never got up close and personal with any of these horses. It's actually pretty interesting and worth the walk up the hill. The horse itself is an engineering marvel and the views are lovely. And you need fresh air people! Do it!...More

The hill provides an opportunity to see the prehistoric artform and views over a exoansive countryside in the Vale of the White Horse.

Nice walk up the hill, but due to the ropes you can't see the horse from the top of the hill! best to view from down in the valley. The £2 car park is too much as there's not even a toilet there!

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
