I didn't know, but I made the effort to find out.

You can find out all about it here:

It's not Newcastle - it's in Gateshead. They are 2 separate cities separated by the river Tyne...

I am aware of that, but seeing as the Gateshead forum has had a mind boggling (2) posts since march !!!! I thought there may be more chance of a reply on the Newcastle- upon- tyne forum.

P.S. I don't think Gateshead has it's city status yet either, you may find it's still a town.

True it is still working for city status although it has been awarded the status of UK European City of Sport 2010.

I only know this as I am a big Newcastle United fan, and frequent visitor to the city.

The good folk of Gateshead are very proud of Gateshead. For too many years it has been seen as the poor relation and is only just beginning to emerge from under the shadow of its larger and wealthier relation. Local rivalries can still run deep. (I lived in Durham for 6 years.)

I must admit I find the Angel of the North a blot on the landscape. I loved the story of an April Fool joke when someone put an Alan Shearer over it. The local bigwigs got terribly upset. It was north eastern humour at its best.

It's £2.40 return to the Angel of the North. I ended up getting the day rover ticket - I think about £5.50 for the day which was bus and metro. Must admit I really liked the Angel.

Thank you , Alekito for posting back, and ignoring the interim local arguement.

I'm glad you liked the old 'Ange', I reckon he is pretty cool, myself.

You did not say where you left from, for your viewing, and whether any of the information you received here was of use, though.

Do you feel up to providing that information?? It might be useful to future forumites (including me!!).
