Getting There

To have a ride in a place like this is special. The magical atmosphere gives a sense of what has time travel, and when no one is closer, the wind plays tricks giving the feeling that Saxon days are back, and why they thought this place was sacred. With all history and mysteries around the ride, the fauna and flora complete all the gaps in what is missing. In short, the is breathtaking place for a lot of activities. So many facilities are available at the start of the ride. So program everything and enjoy.

Parking is available in the National Trust White Horse pay and display car park which is near the village of Woolstone and is signed from the B4507 Wantage to Ashbury Road. The car park is free for National Trust members otherwise you'll need some change to pay the appropriate fee. The post code nearby is SN7 7QN, but this will take you to a village north of B4507, so look out for the signs to take you to the National Trust car park to the south of the road.

Fantastic, the views were incredible! Be mindful to help save the land around the white horse and not walk to it. Help the national trust to repair the land under the white horse.
