We stopped at the site as it was on our way and I am really please we did. It is a very majestic sculpture and its fascinating to read about it's construction. However do not expect a long relaxing visit as it is situated between two highways.

Driving on the nearby motorway it can be seen from the distance. But to appreciate the real size of it you must stop in the car park nearby, however it wasn't very well sign posted. We visited on a weekday, and the car park was quite busy. The sheer size of this scupture is just astonishing! . To read the... More

Breathtaking work of art and feat of engineering. Glimpsed by many as they drive up the A1, it is well worth a detour to visit. Public art is often criticised in this country but this a fine example of how positive it can be. I love it!

I didn't realise until I was stood beneath this awesome structure just how powerful it is. All the photos and films in the press and on TV made me want to see it so I made a 40 mile detour just to say I had seen it. But the pictures don't live up to the reality. The sheer size and... More

Beautiful place of peace. Able to park nearby and walk round this wonderful sculpture. Created by Anthony Gormley. Wonderful to see from the distance on the A1 or up close. Worth the small detour off Junction 65 on the A1.

It is worth the short diversion off the A1 to visit the Angel of the North. Good interpretation and a truly impressive sculpture. Better visitor facilities are needed though.

This is a beautiful place and one should see this angel if you are to Newcastle. 10 minutes drive from Newcastle city centre towards Gateshead and to the angel. I took some of memorable photos.

Antony Gormley's Angel of the North is a stunning creation, and one of the most viewed pieces of art in the world. I have seen her countless times, as a resident of the north-east, but i still turn to look at her each time I pass and I never tire of this exceptional landmark, standing proud at the head of...
