The magnificent Angel!

From a distance it is great but from its base it is absolutely awe inspiring. The only problem is when leaving the site. There is no right turn (west) back to the motorway... read more

On visiting we were surprised how large this sculpture is from nearby. It's interesting to see, but spoiled by the fact that the muddy field is quite full of dog excrement and there is some kind of memorial garden just next to the base which was completely unexpected in such a site, although we appreciate that there is obviously a...

I occasionally walk my dogs in the adjoining field. I look at the rusting hulk if this (so called) iconic landmark, but can't bring myself to like it- undoubtedly eye catching and very well made........... but why?

From a distance it is great but from its base it is absolutely awe inspiring. The only problem is when leaving the site. There is no right turn (west) back to the motorway. Instead it is a long way left (east) before a u-turn is available. But it is still worth a visit as it is truly a magnificent structure... More

A truly colossal sculpture that towers over everything. Visible from miles away, it is the Eiffel Tower of the North. Nothing to do besides take a couple of snaps and move along. Nice big car park though.

Good to have your photo taken sitting on the angel's feet and to take in how big the structure actually is. However, a visitor centre, toilets and cafe would be a welcome addition to this attraction.

Here's some amazing facts about the Angel of the North. • It is believed to be the largest angel sculpture in the world. • It is one of the most viewed pieces of art in the... More
