Loved the HUGE angel. Magnificent . Just think Gateshead council could offer something there like a cafe, a shop, a bench!

Lived beside this all my life You have to visit it if you're in the area It's iconic but the reason to visit is it's an amazing view over the local area. Even has an ice cream van there now and a coffee van sometimes Nice on a warm day or even a cold winters day for a short walk

There's something lovely about the Angel of the north and the pictures and views are spectacular , I was surprised how big it was when you walk towards it , it's absolutely huge . It's nice to take some sandwiches on a nice day and just sit by the angel
