“Excellent views! Great family walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Whenever my family can't decide what we would all like to do, we go to Sutton Bank! We take a picnic and use the tables provided in the picnic area. Be careful when crossing the road to walk towards the glider airfield. Cars tend to go too fast and there's no set crossing. However, when you get there the view is stunning! We went on a sunny day this bank holiday and enjoyed the walk round the airfield (about 3 miles?). There are other walks to do there, plus the visitor centre. All for the price of a parking ticket! (£4)

“Wonderful Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Plenty of lovely walks with great views of the surrounding countryside. We managed to walk up to the white horse with a 4 year old and a 6 year old. Also did two different walks at the top of Sutton bank with them.
Visitors centre is interesting and we spent quite a while looking round waiting for the rain to stop!
The gliding club nearby is also worth a visit.

“Pleasant hillside walk with a lovely snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

A very pleasant walk along the hilltop from the well maintained visitor centre to the chalk white Horse. It's fun to watch the gliders being launched and a sausage roll with a coffee from the visitor centre is a real treat.

“Best Panoramic View in the Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

We visited on a cold May day but with huge rain storms all around. The view across the Vale of York is fantastic. There are walks in every direction and we were amazed by the visitor centre. Only opened last year (May 2012) it is very interactive for both adults and children. A must for anyone trying to get a flavour of North Yorkshire
