Wiltshire plays host county to eight equine chalk hill figures and I regularly drive past them, or stop when time permits. The Hackpen Hill horse is viewable from the main Beckhampton to Swindon road and is one of the smaller members of the eight in...More

We stopped off with the kids whilst driving past to revisit one of the lesser known white horses at Hackpen Hill and to see a new crop circle at the foot of the hill that only recently appeared. Good day out in the summer sun....More

We just happened upon this Whitehorse after a visit to Broad Hinton. My daughter and I were on a visit from the U.S. and this was among other exciting happenstance finds along our journey of over 1,300 miles of road tripping around England. We were...More

A well tended site and well maintained. Visible from the main road it's worth getting a little closer. Fairly impressive and of a good size - it's worth a day trip if also visiting Avebury

Come rain or shine to be on The Ridge Way at Hack Pen Hill over looking Broad Hinton, is a delight. I would suggest warm clothing if the sun isn't shining. The area has a sense of mysticism,and one could imagine ancient man resting there...More

This was my first visit to a white horse. The view is wonderful. The peace and quiet is super. There is parking just up the road - on the very top of the hill. It was quiet on the day we visited so parking wasn't...More

Long been my wife's and my favourite. Car park is on the Ridgeway and the white horse is not actually visible from the carpark. But clear if viewed on the way up, driving in the Marlborough direction from Broad Hinton. That's not the reason we...More
