It's a short walk uphill to the hill fort and then over to see the White Horse. It's a little disappointing that there doesn't seem to be a good position to see the whole of the horse. There are good historical notes in the car park. There must have been a theft problem here as a police car patrolled at... More

The Uffington White horse, Iron age castle and Dragon hill where [apparently] St George vanquished the dragon (and where H Bomb secrets were shared with Russian spies in the 50's) are impressive. Mysterious.........why on earth did the bronze age locals (3500 years ago) build a huge horse that can only really be seen fully and clearly from the air!

The history, the unique vibe and the views are what people come for here. Staggeringly old 1400 - 1600 BC, and quite haunting. I have been coming here for 35 years and never tire of the view...idyllic in summer, dramatic in winter.

One of the classic chalk white horses. Must be visited at some point. Great views over the upper Thames valley. Make sure you spend some time wandering along the nearby Ridgeway too - take in Wayland's Smithy and the hill fort.

Very accessible and not so far from the barrow with big stones. Easy walking really - even if raiining. We really enjoyed being able to stand right on top of this wonderful feature. We did the curcular walk which was great and well marked.

This is beautiful place and offers a straightforward walk using various paths. A great visit and only a small parking fee. Need sturdy footwear.

This is such a peaceful place - with dramatic views of the English countryside, and great walking paths all around. The mystery of the White Horse (apparently created some 3000 years ago) just adds to the allure. Send a day if you can...

Place is beautiful. If you want spend yours Sunday walking around beautiful meadows it is for you. In this time there wasn't a lot of people so it was much nicer to going around.

Really enjoyed our visit to Uffington White Horse, which we combined with a tour of Ashdown House locally - spectacular views, great sunsets
