Good Walk with views

Follow the marker signs to the top of the white horse from the visitor centre Sutton bank. Then walk down the steep stairs to the lower car park and walk back through the woods .

We took a detour to drive to see the white horse at Kilburn. However, we were disappointed as we could not see the complete image of the horse from the carpark. We could not see the horse head at all, unsure if it is covered by the vegetation.

Visited with my dad whilst on the disabled route from the sutton bank centre, he enjoyed learning about the white horse but you couldn't see much of it from his point of view, he still enjoyed the trip around though. On an unrelated note the post below this really ought to be deleted as there has been some slight mistake... More

Sadly the weather deteriorated about 20 minutes before we got to the white horse - high winds and heavy rain - so we weren't seeing it in the best light. But when we arrived, sodden and bedraggled - we couldn't believe the extent of the... More

We parked at the picnic site car park at the bottom of the hill with the White Horse and took the path that lead up the steps at the side. It was a steep climb and we needed to catch our breath a few times on the way up. The sign at the bottom said a 1.5 mile walk but... More

We visited here in October 2016 and had a lovely couple of hours strolling around, taking in the scenery, sitting on a bench and reading about the history of the place. Just what we wanted really.

Lovely place for a snack or meal, great for walking the dog and amazing views of the countryside Would be ideal for wheelchair users as walks have flat footpaths, also has toilet facilities and a gift shop

Parking at the visitor's center just across the road to the path that leads to the White Horse of Kilburn. The path is flat and firm underfoot and the views are stunning;. make sure you take a camera with you.

A very hard cycle up Sutton Bank on road gearing (170mtrs in 1.5km), but enjoyed a cup of tea & was able to speak to very well informed staff about locality.
