We went to see this amazing sculpture on a recent trip to Newcastle. All I can say is it is amazing. Well worth stopping off to stand below it and look up, it is massive.

Make sure you read about how it was put up and the concept behind it too. It is best veiwed from many angles and ensure... More

When you are traveling north along the A1, you can see this monstrosity in the distance and to be honest, it looks just like the tail end of an airplane has crashed into the ground. The closer you get to it, the rustier it looks and to be honest, I do not think it is anything to be proud of... More

Iconic is the best word to describe this modern art and a must visit for any visiting the north east.Easy to get to as it is situated on the A167 and overlooking the A1M. There is plenty free parking and usually a mobile coffee outlet also serving snacks. No toilet facilities could be a problem, just be prepared. The views... More

Like it or loathe it the angel is now synonymous with Newcastle, as much as St. James' park or St. Nicholas cathedral. While I'm not such a great fan of it myself, the angel fantastic to use when starting out in landscape photography. It is also great to use when friends visit and you want to take a group photo...
