I can't believe I've never visited The Angel before. It's impressive to see from the A1 but I loved it up close. Free car park right next to it. And no distance to walk at all. Amazing!

Liked free parking right next to this modern icon. Breath-taking beauty. Amazing views. 2 minutes from motorway, well worth a detour. Disliked nothing

We visited the angel of the north when we were staying with relatives. Our children were thrilled at seeing this huge structure and were happy to pose for photos even though the weather wasn't that great on the day.

The Angel of the North is an impressive and beautiful sculpture. But I’m a bit disappointed by my visit. We took the bus from Newcastle to Durham, with a stop at the Angel. The bus stop is rather far, you have to walk about 250 meters along a busy road to get to the Angel. And somehow it looked less... More

I was travelling from the Marriott Hotel to the Gateshead Parkrun and had time to stop and take a look at the Angel of the North. I was glad I did as it is set in a wonderful location and is an amazing structure when you see it up close. Well worth a quick visit if you are passing.

We decided to go and visit the Angel while on a trip to the Metro Centre. It's easy to find, free parking and you can get some fabulous pics. There's is a board giving you all the details of the sculpture. Worth a visit in my opinion.

Very impressive! Worth a trip - it's just by the main road heading north - not out of the way at all!

This is an impressive modern sculpture placed on top of an old coal mine. Representing the past, present and future she is as big as a jumbo jet and just as impressive!
