Westbury White Horse Walk

Exhilarating walk down to the famous white horse.

Westbury Hill rises to the commanding height of 750ft above sea level and forms the dramatic western edge of Salisbury Plain. The view are tremendous, with the scarp slope dropping into the vale of Pewsey. On a clear day, you can see the Mendips and Cotswolds. Bratton Castle rests on the hill top, an iron age fort.

Distance: 4 miles.
Level of difficulty: Medium
Landscape: Downland
Paths, field paths, downland tracks and 1 stile.


Dog Friendliness: Let dogs off the lead at the top of Westbury Hill.


Parking: Jubilee Hall in Tynings Lane, Bratton, just of the B3098.

Finish off the walk with a relaxing drink in the Duke Pub in Bratton, famous for its Moles ales.

    It was really fun and enjoyable. Lesley did a stunning job, and all participants came with good attitudes to what was occasionally trying weather. And the white horse itself was a good payoff after the climb. that and the pub afterwards.

    Hi All, I will not be able to host this walk now due to a foot injury. Lesley has kindly offered to host it on my behalf (she has pre-walked it recently), and Patrick, if your offer is still there, are you still happy to lead it with Lesley with your OS map if needed? I hope you all have a brilliant walk and I look forward to doing the walk myself when I am better. Becky :-)

    Hello all! Have pre-walked this today! Quite a climb which ever way you go but a lovely walk with stunning views! More than happy to help lead on the walk, as I only live just down the road. To note: parking at the pub is easier!

    Hi All, I am not sure I am going to be able to pre-walk this before the date especially as I have injured my ankle, is anyone able to find time to pre-walk it and help me lead it on the day? I think there are two routes, the flatter one would be better for my ankle. Please let me know, otherwise I may have to postpone it. Becky :-)

    April 11, 2014

  • Louise T.

    • Bex

      Hi All, I have had to put this back by 2 weeks in order for me to have time to pre-walk it. April is busy for me because of Easter and I don't have much time free to do a recce on it. Hope this still fits in with everyone ok. Cheers. Becky
