well what can you say about something that the locals say " looks like a B52 Bomber has reversed into a Hill" there are nice grassy areas to sit, but no anything else really. it is what it is..a big rusty angel statue on a hill. a landmark. noting more, nothing less

Live just 2 miles from this and it is one of the most impressive pieces of public art you will ever see - even if the artist is a pretentious numpty. Beautiful in an awe inspiring way, the true scale of this can only really be appreciated by standing at tha base and looking up. Some local lads had the... More

Most hotels would have pictures and paintings of the Angel of North, so was quite intrigued to see this. The structure itself is massive up close. Its a quiet area and not much to do around. I saw it on my way to Durham.

I travel a lot & always love to pass the Angel because it means I have nearly arrived home. The Angel has now become a modern day heritage site for the North East. Like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I love marmite & I love the Angel.

The Angel is a truly magnificent sight and well worth a visit. However there are no facilities such as toilets on site which considering how many bus trips seem to stop there seems a shame. Also it would be nice if there were refreshments available.

This is such a simple but awesome structure, it just has to be on your list of things to visit in the area which is dead easy because it's so accessible from the A1.

I really enjoyed visiting this monument/art work, but I was well aware that there was nothing to do here other than take photos from various angles (I took a fair few) and climb on the foot for some photos of you on the monument. Don't bother if you are with children as they will quickly ask what there is to... More

It's iconic, recognised all over the world and its big. It's easy to get to, just off the A1, we'll sign posted and has its own car park ( it's free parking) As you park up you can't help but be impressed at the shear presence of the thing but it's not until you actually walk up to it and... More
