  • I really don't think this "chalk" depiction is as visually significant as some of the other ones in the area. I believe the best view is from a roadside overlook on the road to Sherborne.  more »
  • Really odd place to have such a monument but really intriguing place to visit...... Better on a dry day!  more »
  • The Cerme Abbas Man (in le France we say Monsieur Le Grand Zizi) is well worth a visit if you are in the area. As others have said you can't see much of him up close but it is still a good walk up to ...  more »

  • Nice easy place to get too, car park at the bottom and nice walk in the woods. Feb seems wet and sloppy so not easy to get too. Managed to get a picture from the bottom but probably best on a neighbouring hill. Recommended a visit if in the area.
  • You can't really see it from up close. It's better from the viewing place in the village. If you do go close, you can't see it from the right hand side, so go up the left.
  • The Giant is maintained by volunteers every year, but if it is a damp year the chalk rapidly becomes coated with a thin layer of moss and lichen, which makes him go a greenish grey colour. The public are allowed in the enclosure once a year, at 5am on 1st May when the Wessex Morris dance to greet the sunrise at about 5.15/5.30am.
  • Took an American friend to see this sight and was not disappointed
  • Love the giant! While it's true that you can't access him, you don't need to because he's visible from the opposite hill. Great area to walk around! Not sure where google gets the "$$" from - the giant can be seen for free!
