About
Time your visit to this outdoor attraction during low tide. Crosby Beach to the north of the city hosts 100 iron figures cast from the artists' own bodies then erected over a three-kilometer area. Anthony Gormley's simple yet remarkable installation is especially rewarding at sunset.

The installation is amazing with each of the 100 statues dotted over a couple of miles of beautiful Sandy beach. Best time to enjoy them is sunset when they face out to the sea on the west coast. There are information points along the beach and plenty to occupy you for an afternoon in winter and no doubt all day long in summer. You wouldn’t think you were so close to such a big city. Take a walk along the historic houses set on the road running parallel to the beach - Beach Lawn, formerly home to the captain of the Titanic and owner of the White Star Line. Each house is painted a different shade. Close to plenty of restaurants and cafes on the road from Waterloo Merseyrail Station to the beach - short walk just 5-10 minutes gets you there. Must see.

We spent a glorious windswept two hours wandering the beach, admiring the statues. The different way they are weathering, depending on location, means they're endlessly fascinating, and en masse, they make for a moving scene. Don't visit Liverpool without coming to Crosby Beach.

A friend had recommended a visit to this huge beach to see the exhibition of Another Place by Anthony Gormley.
It was a chilly and blustery day but the statues, modelled on the sculpture himself, which left nothing to the imagination!
There are over 100 of these statues in various positions on the beach, in the sea, just in the sea, and on the beach. All of them facing West…was he telling us something?
Well worth a visit and a brisk walk along the shoreline.

Easy to reach from Blundellsands and Crosby station - at low tide, the sands and statues seem to go on for miles. From a distance, it isn't always easy to pick out a statue and a real person.
The RNLI patrol the beach in 4x4s, presumably to check for visitors who may risk being cut off by a rising tide.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here, even of was very windy (storm Ciara was certainly letting us know she wasn't far away).
The statues are great and are dotted about the beach and my fella and I were amazed at how far out they went.
You can't beat a day at the beach and the statues make it that bit more exciting
Parking was easy and reasonable £1 for 2 hours. Can pay by card or cash.
Well worth a visit and great for walking the dog if you have one. There were plenty of dog walkers when we were there

I have waited a few years to see Crosby Beach and the sculptures of Antony Gormley's artwork "Another Place". I was not disappointed by the vast beach and the sculptures looking out to sea.

As a keen photographer I found the work very atmospheric. I was also rewarded with a stunning sunset that evening. The beach is very popular and the art work is clearly much loved by the people who visit.

Would you like to have models of your body,. warts and all, standing on a beach staring out to sea? Well that is what Anthony Gormley has done in this art installation on Crosby Beach. It's certainly interesting and caused quite a lot of discussion with our friends as we walked down the rusty, barnacle encrusted figures. Whatever you think or art installations, this one is certainly worth taking a look at but be careful to keep an eye on the tide.

Preferred the statues when they were adorned with polka dot bikini's back in 2017 but this apparently enraged Gormley and he demanded the council clean them off. Strange, thought the council would approve of this new diversity, rather than just representing one ageing white man. To visit now and find that they have been embedded to ensure they 'last a thousand years' strikes me as slightly totalitarian.

An interesting art installation even if art isn’t your thing. They provide an interesting foreground towards excellent views towards Liverpool, Wales and the open sea. As a family they promoted discussions about art and the meaning of the statues themselves. It’s also just some time in the open with an ice cream by the sea.

We visited Crosby Beach at around 14:30 pm in January and the tide was going out so we got a good contrast between the figures on the beach and those who were being revealed under the waves. Walking boots were fine for the wet sand but needed to be waterproof to cross the 'river channels' when walking along the water's edge. The beach is clean and seemed to be clear of rubbish which was nice to see. The area itself would certainly benefit from a cafe to shelter from the elements and also some additional toilets. The coin-operated ones took my partners only coins but didn't release the locked door.
