Stopped off in main carpark, but there's a disabled carpark nearer the gates to fort. Still a hilly walk upto actual fort ditches. From the top you have 360° views on a clear day. The ditches are steep and huge. The White Horse is beneath...More

Whilst on a recent business trip to Swindon with my wife (i.e. via Uffington village ), we decided to take the opportunity to stop and visit the huge chalk-cut figure of the White Horse on the hill nearby. In order to reach the historical monument,...More

Situated right next to the White Horse it makes sense to visit the two at the same time. So it's the same car park and 10 minute uphill walk. Other than the boundary mound there's not a lot to see but you can almost hear...More

There is plenty of parking in a car park, that cost £2 for 2 hours. An ice cream van was in the car park for those that fancied an ice cream. Also in the car park is an information board giving brief history on the...More

I visited the White Horse today for a “Chalking the Horse” event and this was a bonus right next to Uffington White Horse. I’ve visited many Iron Age “forts” (usually simply a settlement or Enclosure) and this is a good example. It has good ditches...More

A good example of an Iron Age fortification, with amazing views. Worth the effort to walk up the hill.

The climb to Uffington Castle is pleasant and the views along the way and at the top are stupendous. The castle is not at all what one imagines when the word castle is said - there are no stone walls and no turrets. Instead one...More

Accessing this is easiest from the White Horse carpark, but there is also a walk from the village for those that are seeking more exercise. Once completing the short walk from the car park there are amazing views of Oxfordshire and West Berkshire to admire....More

I must admit, we found this by chance as we were driving home and saw some interesting signs. We looked at the white horse first and then continued up to look at the castle. It’s not a castle as you would imagine, but it’s where...More
