Went here and was slightly disappointed. The statue itself was good but basically that's it. Short walk up to it, walk around it then back down hill

This is an amazing place to be on bonfire night and New Year's Eve.......why you ask? You get to see fireworks going off from all around the region.

Went here with my wife and son! It's an easy bus ride from Newcastle city centre!!not much around other than a burger van near by but we only wanted to visit the statue and take some pictures! Would be best to visit in the summer when it's a bit warmer!

I was initially unhappy with the cost of this 'piece of art' but once I'd seen it my attitude changed. I love it - so will you

It's something to do for free... its iconic. A quick 10/20mins. It wont keep the kids very entertained, theres parking, no food/drinks available or shops nearby.

This amazing sculpture is about 10-15 min drive from the city centre, its free to walk around, sit on the grass and take in the view. There is nothing else here bar an ice cream van with overpriced produce.

Spent an afternoon dining then socializing over a 4 to 5 hour period. Starter soup...looked and tasted like blitzed leftovers. Scampi main, nothing to write home about, no way of telling but i suspect it was frozen and not particularly tasty. Drinks. Asked for a rum and pep and staff had never heard of it.

Angel of the North is magnificent. Well worth seeing. It's easy to get to as it is just at the road side. There is a little lay by to park in and you can walk right up to the sculpture.
