The view from the horse over towards Wensleydale and down past York to Selby is amazing. Fresh air ( usually blown at you, even in summer) and great scenery, just the place foe a picnic. Watch the gliders take off from nearby and soar on the thermals. A great place for the kids and dogs to run off steam, not... More

Walk 23 from the Pathfinder North York Moors book. An enjoyable 8 miler with great views off the Bank, with Gormire Lake, the White Horse and the gliding club included. Lots of parking at the visitor centre. On a sunny day, an absolute joy!

We parked at the top of the bank near the glider centre and took the walk all the way down to the bottom and back up again. Took less than half an hour altogether. Definitely not for the physically challenged but there is a car park at the bottom with picnic tables and walks for the less abled. Will definitely... More

Hi we took the walk around the top of the White Horse on 10th August. The views were stunning. Also saw lots of wild flowers amongst the grasses along the walk.

The views from the top, west towards the Pennines and to the south are stunning on a clear day, though the White Horse is better seen from a distance. The gliding club adds to the interest.

Enjoyed a great visit here today. Teenage son hired a mountain bike at a reasonable cost as mum and dad walked to see the white horse. Had a great lunch on return to visitor centre. Reasonably priced and freshly made. Fabulous service from friendly lady serving. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended

Great view of White Horse from above. Club is a short ride from Thirsk and a nice stop even if you are not gliding. Can watch the gliders be launched from their cafe.

Plenty of activities for children at the visitors centre, loved the Hobbit house. Plenty of outdoor seating to rest some weary feet after following some excellent paths with terrific views
