In my opinion this monstrosity has nothing whatsoever to do with the beautiful North East of England.

The Angel is an iconic monument of the north and worth a visit to say you have been up close. There's a coffee van where you can grab a drink and go and sit on the grass to drink. If you want a bite to eat the Angel View Inn is across the road.

It's alright for a few minutes to take perspective on the size jf the angel, but after that it's pretty underwhelming. Nothing to keep you interested except the views

Having seen the Angel from the road, we decided on this trip to drive up and have a closer look. There is a car park and a lovely walk around the angel. Obviously you know it is huge, but somehow we felt unprepared for how enormous and impressive it is when you are close up. The information board gives lots... More

Been there loads of times, very well set out how you walk up to it under the left arm. When you look up it's quite imposing! Last time I was there was to do some filming for a music video. Only problem is that its quite windy and you almost end up in the bushes as you have to get... More

Ive wanted to see this statue for a while, given that I head to Liverpool quite often to see the cast iron men out to sea, at Crosby (barnacles and all) also Anthony Gormley.
