East and West Ilsley Circular Route

Route type: Additional equestrian route

This 7 mile circuit lies within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, roughly 7 miles (12km) west of the River Thames at Goring-on-Thames. It includes a stretch of The Ridgeway along the scarp face of the Downs which gives tremendous views of the Thames Valley.  The remainder of the route between the two Ilsley villages is classic rolling downland. This route can be enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

We hope you'll enjoy this walk. If you do please consider making a small donation to help us continue to care for the Ridgeway National Trail and provide information about it.
