Having lived in the north for almost 3 years, I thought going to see The Angel of North would be a must. I luckily went on a day which was sunny, so the atmosphere was perfect. The statue is okay, it is not as big as I expected, but it's still worth going to see. It also makes great pictures.... More

This iconic sculpture is a must see and is much larger and impressive close up than you imagine from viewing from a distance! Parking is good and very close to it. Great views over the countryside.

Having driven passed The Angel hundreds of times, we decided to stop with the kids for photos. I new it was big, but not as big as it is. It was a little cold up there in winter, but nobody else was about so perfect for photos.

If, like us, you are travelling to Scotland for a break, try to make time to visit this impressive site. Sat Navs will find it, and it is well signposted from the motorway. It is truly a sight to see! Free parking and a short stroll to the statue with opportunities for you to take your photos standing with your... More

Walked there in the night, scary but strengthening. A very spiritual pilgrimage took place, got to meet some great locals along the journey. Well serviced by bus 21 from Gateshead Town Centre £2 each way at night and £1.50 each way by day I think. It was brilliant. In the day was easier I went by vehicle and the journey... More

Well worth stopping and taking a few pictures if you are in the area. It's a lot bigger than you think when you get up alongside it.

Absolute worth stopping and standing underneath this amazing piece of art work. Very emotional when you consider what the sculpture represents.

What a fantastic sculpture and a truly remarkable representation of the rebirth of this area. Easy to get to and lots of parking. A magical place just off the A1.
