As I look out of my bedroom window I can just about see the White Horse so I know it well. AN historic monument of indeterminate age with the experts constantly arguing just how old it is. Let us say 2500 years old for few would argue with it. The Villages periodically "scour" the Horse ie clean it up and... More

If you don't like the wind then don't go here. If you do like a refreshing walk with good free parking and relatively well made paths and something interesting to see then this is a good place to go. Nice open spaces for kids to safely run about as well.

A wonderful place for walks and scenery with the (grass) castle and NT place nearby. A spectacular place.

While the Uffington castle is no more, the White Horse provides a good panoramic view into Wiltshire and Oxfordshire. Parking is provided by The National Trust - free for members and just a couple of quid if not.

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.
