Never was a big fan of this from its outset felt it was a waste of money but over the years i guess you get used to it being there and having been away and returning then it has now become a part ot landscape. At least it remains unlike the local river landscape where the local shipyards etc have... More

Living in Gateshead I was able to watch the assemble of the components used to create this statue and the erection was completed in one weekend. The foundations I can assure you took a lot longer. Initially I expected this statue to be larger however it is an impressive work of engineering though not my favourite piece of art. If... More

who ever thought this depicted the North East is living in cloud cookoo land. The skill in making it is evident and has to be admired, but the design lets the skill of the men involved in the construction down. I think more could be done with the surrounding area to make it more pleasing for visitors. The view over... More

I have been a couple of times to the Angel , i see it more as a sign of being home more than a tourist attraction , if you are visiting the North-East thpugh it is well worth a visit .....

I drive past here most days and so decided to have a stroll around one nice day. Have to say i wish I'd just stayed viewing from the car. Really don't know what all the fuss is about

There's not a lot to say. It's an iconic sight of my home in the north east. There isn't too much parking space but take a picnic. Your right on the A1 but get your camera our. It looks over the valleys. Worth a stop.

I've wanted to see The Angel of the North since her construction, but despite living relatively close by I'd never managed to make the trip. However, my recent trip to Scotland took me up the A1 to the Edinburgh by-pass, and so a quick detour to visit The Angel was a no-brainer. She's everything I expected, and somehow more. A... More

Amazing sculpture to stand beneath....when you manage to find your way to it! Great for kids to get an idea of the size of this sculpture which can be seen for miles around
