I recommend visiting the Angel of the North to anyone visiting the local area. There's lots of parking and the statue is only a minute or two away from where you can park your car. Great place to take your dog as well, it can...More

Impressive structure very accessible from the road, with good parking and a short walk. Worth a short stop when in the area

Waited ages to go and see this structure, not what I expected. ( not sure what I expected though) . This very large structure was rusty obviously due to the weather. Taking photos of family standing below it made them look very small, quite comical....More

The angel of the north is a good place because it has a massive football pitch with big goals and has a pub close to it

Well worth a visit just to experience the sheer size of her, a giant structure visible from miles away. Walk up to her, take lots of photos with no charge to see her. Definitely worth a visit.

We were so excited to see this from the train a bit before we got to Newcastle, (approaching from the south), had no idea it would be possible! Try to look out for it if you can, it is really impressive.

Great view and good to see the angel close up rather from the nearby motorway. Especially nice to see it wearing it's Christmas hat!

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

How far would the Angel of the north be from the centre of Newcastle and whats the easiest way to get to there? Buses? etc Many thanks Belfast Girl

Response fromLeeB.|
It's not particularly far from Newcastle center by bus, I'd say 10-15 minutes from what I remember. The #21 bus leaves from Pilgrim St. Timetables at http://www.gonortheast.co.uk./ Also, you can get driving directions at the Angel of the North website.

Large and secure luggage storage in Newcastle? (8 Replies)
I'm leaving the UK for good and will most likely leave by ferry to Amsterdam. I'll come by train from Scotland. There are two things I'd love to do nearby, go to a pit brow lass exhibition in Bishop Auckland and/or visit the Angel of the North. I'll be travelling with a backpack, big suitcase and a musical instrument in a 110cm long casing. Is there a secure possibility to leave the suitcase and instrument so I can explore the north for a few hours before taking the metro to the ferry...More
