Yes, had to do the touristy thing and stop off at The Angel of the North sculpture!!!... It's huge. 20 metres tall and the wing span is 54 metres wide. After the "photo taking", we found a soccer field. Kick a ball to this as...More

The bus was easy to get from the city centre to the angel. Definitely worth seeing up close as it is a very different experience.
