I used to like the angel of the north but now I think it’s alright. It’s a very busy landmark. It’s good to roll down the hill and get muddy.

Despite living on doorstep only just actually stopped instead of driving past! Lovely views and walks around, bit off road so not suitable for everyone.

Great views all around would be nice to have a picnic when it's warmer. Standing looking up at the head and wings gave me a feeling of peacefulness.

A nice place to visit (not on a cold and windy day). A nice place for family with kids and pets. Amazing attraction.

I dont think you can truly appreciate how impressive The Angel of The North is until you stand beneath it. Well worth a visit.

This attraction is a love or hate, and personally I hate it. Just looks like a plane crashed on it's tail! Was much enhanced when some locals put a Newcastle United top on it! That said, I live local to this and many people visit,...More

Hi, the Angel is on the A167 Durham Road just before it joins the A1. There are loads of buses that use this road as a southern route out of the Newcastle/Gateshead conurbation. I don't use that many buses so can't... More
