Set beneath The North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Kilburn is a quintessential pretty English village.
Kilburn is famous for The White Horse, at 318 feet long and 220 feet tall, it is largest and most northerly white horse hill figure in the UK! You can take a walk through Kilburn woods past the White Horse and on to the top of Sutton Bank, for breathtaking panoramic views.
Afterwards pop in to the Forresters Arms, where you will be greeted with a warm welcome, fine wines and ale and a spot of lunch.
The White Horse is not Kilburn’s only claim to fame of course, for the village was also once home to master wood carver Robert Thompson. Born in 1876, he was renowned for his prowess in carving English oak and put his skills to crafting items of furniture based on 17th century English styles - and from 1919 his trademark mouse symbol became an identifiable signature of his work. However, today you can go to the Mousemans Visitor shop and café.
Local amenities can be found in the nearby market towns of Thirsk and Easingwold.
