Pleasnt walks, though the White Horse is best seen from Kilburn, visittheMouseman at the same time. Well organised visitors centre at Sutton Bank with helpful staff. Pleasantwalks along the escarpment, good views oftheVale o York.
Carparking charges at Sutton Bank, though there is a bus service. cafe, shop, exhibition centre,at the visitors centre

“Peaceful views across yorkshire's beautiful moors *buggy friendly*”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

From Thirsk we visited as it's just around the corner to Sutton Bank visitor centre. Tea room we found a little overpriced yet staff in centre were helpful. If you want you can bypass both & walk the shortish walk to the top of the white horse. Horse itself you can't see really (best viewed from afar) yet we liked the walk due to it being buggy accessible & the beautiful scenery. We didn't study the options to be fair & so walked back the way we came, am sure must be alternatives. Nice to watch the gliders taking off too.

Great views overlooking the Vale of York and on a clear day the Yorkshire 3 peaks in the Yorkshire Dales. Good walking area which lead to Kilburn, Hood hill and Lake Gormire

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Lovely walk to the top and around the area with some beautiful views over the countryside.
The white horse itself is very overgrown and needs some TLC

“Great walk”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The horse itself is best viewed from a distance. The car park below the horse offers a steep climb up steps to the viewing point above the horse and rewards the effort with excellent views towards the Hambleton Hills and the Yorkshire Dales. Also the top of the hill has the Yorkshire Gliding Club, watch the gliders come in and out. It's a great area for short and long walks and various cafe and pub opportunities are in easy walk of the attraction. Alternatively there is an ice cream van in the car park in the Summer.
