Visited it on Sunday with friends. Weather conditions were perfect for a 12 mile walk. The views were brilliant and the serenity of place left us awestruck.

THE place to go if you have a liking for chalk uplands, stunning views with a large horse(?) shape dose of pre-history. Walk around the top of the earthwork to sense it all and enjoy the fresh air even if it is blasted at you....More

What a stunning view from the top. A must see on a good sunny day. Not much is free these days so don't miss it. You might have to pay to park if not a National Trust member but don't let that put you off.

Well worth the walk, what a magical place. We were lucky with the weather, but at any time of year this is well worth a visit.

Parked in National Trust car park and walked up to the white horse on a breezy sunny Spring day. All you could hear was aircraft overhead - and skylarks! In terms of the white horse itself, there are better ones in the country and it...More

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

I was there 45 years ago, not as young as I was then. I did not see the horse, even though we climbed to the top of the hill. I would like to find out where the spot is from the road where the horse is visible. I will be there in August. Thank you.
