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.

Visited Liverpool and Crosby beach with my sister. We are both interested in art, and really enjoyed seeing Gormley statues. They are more spaced out than I thought, and bigger. As they have been in place for a while they are getting covered in little...More

Sir Antony Gormley at his best. What a vast creation of 100 cast iron men all looking out to sea spread across Crosby Beach. Although all are moulded the same each have over time weathered into individuals now all different. Have wanted to visit here...More

It is impressive with over 100 iron men looking at the sea, some totally visible, some so far away in the sea that only heads are visible. You can go there by taxi, cost £ 16 from Liverpool, or by train from Liverpool Central. We...More

A memorable experience, an amazing concept,...More

Ever since one of Anthony Gormley’s figures turned up in the Thames outside a posh apartment close to Limehouse Basin we have vowed to go and see the real installation and finally we have made it. It’s difficult to describe the effect of these iron...More

We arrived at high tide but interesting all the same. These statues were going to move on but the local council purchased them to remain. Good on them. Great views of the channel and the opening of the River Mersey.

I love this place. It's worth visiting at a variety of time of the year for the different impact visually. Some reviewers hate the statues but that's art: it will never be everyone's cup of tea. I myself love them, can't explain why. The first...More

Yes you do have to pay to park but not a lot and it is worth it to see the figures on the beach.
