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.

On a raw windy December day, with the tide coming in it was good to see the statues, all identical, all based on the sculptor Anthony Gormley ( Angel of the North ) standing, looking out to sea. Some on dry beach others in the...More

Wonderful story of how the sculptures arrived at Crosby. Very atmospheric walking around them. Certainly worth a visit. Recommended best time to visit is low tide at sunset.......

A stunning work of art. We were alone on the beach albeit for the 40 statues. It is eerie in a postapocalypt way......

Not really. There is a cafe in the leisure centre which is just off the beach and also some cafes/food places on the main road which is a little walk away. If you are driving then my suggestion would be to see the... 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.
