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

Located in a strategic and commanding position atop Uffington Hill, you can see the solid earthwork ramparts surrounding the top. The view from here is stunning.

Visited Uffington Castle on the Ridgeway with the kids and had the Castle / Fort remains to ourselves! Located just above the more famous White Horse, most people don't realise the fort is even there. Nicely preserved and maintained by the National Trust. Great view...More

Views are spectacular and you can take the dog. The white horse has been taped off for protection from erosion but it's still a wonderful site. To really appreciate this ancient wonder it would be better seen from the air pity they don't do this.

A fantastic place to view the landscape for miles around which was great because it was such a clear and bright day. It must have been a very impressive site in its day and still is. It is a great place of interest to visit...More

If you’re visiting the White Horse carry on over the hill and see some fine views of several counties. The circular ditch is interesting, but is all that is here - for me the view outwards from where the settlement would have been was the...More

This is a wonderful place on a clear day - "you can see for miles and miles and mile"! There is a 360 degree view, the only downsides are Swindon and Didcot power station - both on the horizon. Take yourself back to neolithic times!
