I have seen the Giant many times but I always take my friends to say hello just to give them a good laugh.

Perhaps being November it is not at its best but when comparing the figure with the likes of the Fovant Badges the giant did not stand out against the background. The white chalk was a dirty shade of green and could only really be seen standing at the side with the sun casting shadows which gave some sort of relief

Interesting chalk figure which would have been more visible had it not been for the long dead grass on the upper reaches of the hill in particular. Still worth a visit if for nothing more than the novelty value.

The Giant is comprised of a natural chalk finish which grows a greenish grey lichen covering amazingly quickly. This is particularly true when it is damp, as it is in the autumn. So the summer is probably a better time to see him. His outline is made of a trench about 18 inches deep and a foot wide, which is... More

Visited here on Saturday to show my partner who had never seen the giant before. It was also a good while since I had visited, so was also looking forward to it. After eventually finding the site (could see no signs in the village for it) we were extremely disappointed on finding the Giant as It appears not to have... More

Went there while we were on a walking holiday in Dorset was a little disappointed as you couldn't see the Giant very clearly from the road it needs so care taken on it

Worth seeing, but the upkeep as change to the government and has definitely slacked in the last few years. But since it doesn't drive any income, not sure it will change in the future, which is a shame.

We visit twice a year and make it our coffee stop. Probably once you have seen it you do not need to go again unless you are of hardy stock and fancy walking up alongside the giant. I stress we do not fit this agenda, but we do like coffee, so when we visit Minterne Gardens just a few minutes... More

We went out of our way to visit the cerne abbas giant. It was fascinating but also a little disappointing. If we had come across this on a journey would have been fine but we had gone out of our way. As previous comments the outline is very faded. We pulled in the car park and both said "Is that... More
