Easy to find, you can see it for miles. There was a good car park, pay and display though. Not much else to see there other than the statue

This is a must-see if you are in the area, awe-inspiring and beautiful. Plenty of information nearby, although no explanation of how they got a giant Sunderland shirt on it a couple of years ago!

I went there a few years ago but decided to stop by on the way to Durham since a friend was visiting. It was and still is a good idea for the area. Disappointing to see that some kids have written all over it. I would not be surprised of the local youth did since the area is not the... More

An absolute work of genius, loved it. It is a quick 5 min visit but one to remember and admire the workmanship that has gone into it

Ugly, eyesore, waste of money, designed to rust. It only ever looked good when it was wearing that toon top with Shearer on the back.

It's there so embrace it . The children think it's wonderful so do I. The council could do with making a pathway so you can take a good photo of it or even give the local ice cream van some postcards to sell.

Seen it rusting on a hillside over looking the A1M. Why? God only knows. They could of put it in the middle of the Motorway so traffic could pass under it's wings. Not stick it on a hill that has limited access and not a good advert for money well spent.

I didn't realise the Angel of the North was so close to where I was staying, so of course I had to see it! I really enjoyed seeing it, and it's amazing how much I didn't know about it - like for a start it's only 16 years old! With me being only 5 years old when built, I've just... More
