  • Driving up from Dorset, we stopped off to see the Cerne Abbas Giant - carved into the chalk hillside. You can't walk up to the giant now, but the best view is rom the car part, across the valley. Good...  more »
  • Best seen from a distance rather than close up, this is a great place to visit. The chalk downs are full of wild flowers and butterflies. Neighbouring Cerne Abbas village is a real gem.  more »
  • Car parking nearby. Ideal dog walk as you can roam all round the area. Steep hills so be careful. His spear is 120feet long so not sure how big he is - as always a good talking point !!  more »

  • Bright, clear and beautifully visible as of April 2017 - you can see every throbbing detail!
  • Awesome also brought a clock from a village shop depicting the giant and his penis is the second finger lol
  • Ok but the giant is a bit faded
  • Underwhelming sadly. Very overgrown and almost indiscernable. Shame - kids were dead excited at the prospect.
  • Not remotely worth the 25 minute detour of our trip as they have let it grow over and it's therefore barely visible! Very disappointing!
