About

The White Horse Country Park is set within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The park offers beautiful countryside, local history and panoramic views.

The site hosts the medieval ruins of Thurnham Castle, which are easily explored. Within the park boundaries there are also traces of an Iron Age settlement, providing even more historical interest.

Over 20,000 trees have been planted at the site including - oak, ash, silver birch, wild cherry and crab apple. And five hectares of land has been seeded to create an area of open grassland.

There is an easy access route around the park, perfect for wheelchairs and pushchairs, from which you can enjoy the amazing view.
