York & Yorkshire in a Day Small-Group Tour

7 reviews
York and its surrounding countryside are home to natural attractions and ancient treasures dating back centuries, but organizing transportation to explore independently cuts into valuable sightseeing time. On this tour, follow your guide on a walking tour of York and delve into the Yorkshire countryside by air-conditioned vehicle. Discover sites of interest like Rievaulx Abbey and the North York Moors, and explore both city and countryside in a day.

Totally underwhelmed, don’t bother! Nice walk with views, good to watch the gliders (maybe that’s where you need to be to see it), but no horse in sight, couldn’t even make it out from the White Horse car park. Just looked like an area of gravel to us!

The walk from the Sutton Bank National Park Centre is delightful. You get some amazing views on a clear day from the top of the escarpment. As for the white horse, it is currently in need of a makeover and you can’t get a decent view of it from the walking route.

We were staying in Thirsk and decided to visit ‘the white horse’. We arrived at car park about 11am and being a nice day there were no car parking spaces left! We went further down the road and managed to park and walk back up the road. You can see most of the horse except it’s head from the car park. We walked up the steep stairs to the top, and followed the paths. It is a lovely walk with great views over the country side.

Parked at Sutton Bank, paid for parking in the shop. Short walk to see the “best view in England” and then walked towards the white horse, down the steep steps. Hard to see the view from the bottom as the bushes need a trim! We walked back up through the woods. A nice walk. Worth seeing and keep your eyes peeled when driving across the moors to see it from a distance.

Wonderful views of beautiful Yorkshire. Less mobile people can park at the visitor centre and have a flat walk on a good path whereas fitter people can climb the steps up the side of the horse.
