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

Good facilities in the car park, with toilets, shop and information centre. Signposts take you to the best spot to see the stunning view which is just fantastic, you can then take th walk to the White Horse past the glider club on some decent paths, can't really see the horse as you're right on top of it but if...

Took the walk along side of the Glider Club. Nice stroll with fantastic views. Got to the White Horse but was that close, couldn't actually make out the shape of the horse...but well worth the views

This should be on the top of your list of places to visit in this area. Marvellous visitor centre - plenty for the young visitor to do. Lovely café. Fantastic, panoramic views from the viewing area.

Walked the white horse trail with my partner. We are avid walkers and do clock up some miles. The initial short 1.5 mile walk above the white horse was tough going for an average walker, the steps not described properly. ( stated leg stretcher though these steps would be very hard going for an average Joe with a modicum of... More

Came here for a walk on a beautiful Sunday, as did lots of other people. We had a lovely time, there are lots of steps which lead up to a stunning view at the top of the White Horse, which was nice to look at as you get a little bit of breath back. Nice walk along to Sutton Bank... More

What a fantastic place. Park in the car park at the White horse but be prepared for a tough walk up the steps to the top. Well worth it though. As you walk round the gliding club the views are fantastic. Either walk down through the woods half way round on the left and back to your car or stay... More

Great family walk, kids loved all the steps. Not suitable for anybody who struggles with steps, my mums a good walker but had a knee replacement and she couldn't manage the steps. Definitely worth the climb, stunning views. Please please keep dogs on a lead v dangerous if they go near edge.
