There is not much remarkable about the Cerne Abbas man apart from his very large and obvious willy. Perhpas that attracts some visitors. He needs a bit of renovation, but he is not as good as the Long Man of Wilmington, who surprisingly is far...More

Quite who constructed this massive monument is it seems a matter of conjecture. Whoever was responsible created a stunning, and rather indelicate, work of art that always captivates the viewer. There is a car park from which a short walk leads to the best viewing...More

We unfortunately went out of our way to see this. Really not worth the travel. It's just a chalk outline of a man. Could well have been the police outline for the last murder of a giant. However you can't really see it. They could...More

Arrived today expecting to see the Cerne Abbas Giant and terribly disappointed. No clear outline and could not distinguish at all the shape or outline. Whoever manages the site needs to re apply the chalk for the summer season, there will be lots of unhappy...More

We walked around the Giant but it's best viewed from across the valley. There's a good viewpoint with car parking just outside the village of Cerne Abbas. The viewpoint is also within easy walking distance from the village centre.

Carved into the mountainside is a figure of a Giant man, definately NOT a female figure as you can visibly observe. Conflicting reports on who it might have been some say the roman God Hercules and some say Oliver Cromwell although why Cromwell would be...More
