Dated to about 1400 BC, this mysterious figure is carved into a chalk hillside just below an Iron Age hill fort and can only be seen in its entirety by air.

The family went yesterday. It was absolutely stunning. Beautiful landscape. Only bad side is it's hard to see the whole house unless you have a drone.

Best views around the plan and loads of walking. Postcode showed in National Trust was a close location and not the exact parking, so if you follow the post code in National Trust, make sure you follow the road signs.

I'd seen pictures, and driven past some of the other chalk sculptures in the region, but I'd always wanted to see the Uffington White Horse, up close, in person. The first thing is to notice that it's on the interior of a partially bowl-shaped hillside....More

I climbed the hill to see the white horse but, although the fact that I have a fantastic view from the top, I couldn't see the horse. They closeded the way to the horse. So, I tried to see from the road, that was nice...

With difficulty. I saw a bus stop in a nearby village, which appears to be the Saturday-only X47 from Wantage. I'd personally recommend renting/bringing a bicycle and heading over from Swindon or Didcot, as the area is well... More

Basically there's a hill to walk around and look at. You can use it as a starting point for various long walks in the area, covering a lot of archaeological sites. The car park might have an ice cream van in it. The X47... More
