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.

We are National Trust members so parking was free and we thought it was worth a visit as we were passing. Apparently White Horse Hill is the oldest chalk figure in the country dating back to the Iron Age approximately 3000 years ago. The walk/climb/incline...More

If you enjoy walking, this is a great place to hike. The chalk White Horse is an amazing feature and the site is very close to the Ridgeway paths, and just over a mile from the long barrow at Waylands Smithy (well worth the walk)....More

Great location to walk to from any of the surrounding villages or a short stroll from the National Trust car park (payment necessary) which saves walking up the hill! Superb views north over the Vale and usually several red kites circling above.

Brilliant view to the north of Oxfordshire from the Downs and the long distance footpath the Ridgeway. A good car park owned by the National Trust is a pay one about 800 metres from the summit to the hill. The white horse needs to be...More

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.

I definitely recommend taking the walk out to see the White Horse at Uffington. We parked at the official National Trust car park and were given very helpful directions by the NT lady on site of where to walk. It's about 1/2 mile across gently...More

I came here in May but as I arrived it started bucketing with rain so there was no point in venturing out onto the hill. I was back in the area in early July and saw this on a lovely clear sunny day. There was...More

My parents live about 20 minutes away from White Horse Hill, so we decided that before we went back home to America we would spend the day there. First off, you have to pay for parking it is £2 for 2 hours or £4 for...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
