Well worth a visit if you are anywhere close to Uffington. A lovely drive up one side and across the upper level and into the car park which is spacious but can get busy due to the amount of people visiting. You can get outline to the white horse itself but its better viewed from the main road. There are... More

From the nearest car park it is a gentle uphill stroll to the famous Uffington white horse. It is possible to walk right by it - but don't spoil the chalk outline. Great views over the hills including some fascinating features including the "dragon"

The walk from the large Uffington White Horse car park to the neolithic barrow of Wayland's Smithy is about a mile in length and takes in a short section of the ancient Ridgeway. The track was surprisingly dry for February but walking boots were required for the muddier sections. Wayland's Smithy is well-signposted at the beginning of the route and... More

We have visited White Horse Hill on a few occasions. There is a good car park and the start of the walk is easily accessible. Good for young children as to get to the top of the hill the walk isn't particularky long.

With excellent parking at The White Horse you can start some fantastic walks along The Ridgeway or by dropping down to some of the local villages. Some of the Ridgeway is a bit up and down and becomes more difficult in wet weather. Long walks not really suited for disabled access unfortunately. The grass area around The White Horse is... More

It's hard to see from the road, we walked to the smithy first from the car park and back to the horse. Really worth fighting the cold to get the view even in the mist. It's high!

Great to visit in any season On a crisp winters day it was elemental and a very enjoyable experience though descending was much harder than the climb due to the frosty ground.

Walk along one of the oldest roads in europe "The Ridgeway" and then make a slight detour to view the horse .....and Uffington Castle ....step over the rope and onto the horses eye ...close your eyes, make a wish and who knows ................
