“Phew.”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Carved out of the bank some years ago,be careful on the drive up as it is tight & twisty.A long walk so take your time but the views are fantastic, worth a drive out.

“Great place to start walks with amazing views”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Have been visiting this area of North Yorkshire for many years, although have in the past year been on a bit of a health kick. Visit and park at the visitor centre at the top of Sutton bank. Plenty of walks and cycle routes start here. At the moment the centre is being updated and should soon be finished. Cafe of a good standard and staff helpful. The path across to the White Horse gives great views of the Glider Club and when the weather is suitable is ideal to watch the gliders being towed. This path is suitable for pushchairs but cannot be used by cyclists or horses. On the visitor centre side the footpaths are being improved and provide a great circular walk and a link to the Cleveland Way. Not really suitable for younger children as most paths are near the cliff edge. There is a charge to park here but its well worth it.

“Wonderful views otherwise not a great deal to see or do.”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Sutton Bank is a beautiful location with fantastic views and good walking. The Cafe is a bit basic but acceptable. The White Horse of Kilburn is much better seen from a distance, the effect is lost be being so close. The only other thing to do is to watch the gliders.
