Heard rave reviews so decided was a must on my trip to Newcastle. Imposing feature but TBH I didn't think much of it. Sorry.

It is a tremendous sight when you spot it in the distance. We stopped on our way home from Newcastle with a 6 and 9 year old who were fascinated and wanted to take a closer look. There is a free car park with coffee/snacks...More

On our way to Newcastle we deliberately stopped at the Angel so Grandson could see it at first hand as he'd "done" it at school. He loved it even though it was pouring with rain!

The Angel isn’t that old but it has quickly become a landmark in the north. It’s easily reached by the Route 21 bus from either Newcastle or Durham but there’s parking onsite with vans serving hot food and ice cream. Popular with both children and...More

Reading about the size of something and seeing it are 2 different things and the first thing that struck us was the size. It's huge! It's a significant sculpture and worth seeing if you're in the area.

A nice place to see with smaller children. Good views of surrounding area. Once you’ve walked up and taken your pictures with your arms out etc there’s not a lot else to do. Still nice to see.

We often visit Crosby beach to see the Iron Men that Anthony Gormley sculpted so when we were in the area visiting The Angel of the North was high on our to-do list. You honestly just don’t realise how big this sculpture is until you...More

You don't really appreciate the size of the monument until you actually visit and go underneath it. Worth going to say you have been!!!!!

We actually stayed at The Angel View and were lucky to get a full view of this fantastic sculpture as our room window looked out upon it. I have to admit I did stare at it for a while. There is a small car park...More

Hi, the Angel is on the A167 Durham Road just before it joins the A1. There are loads of buses that use this road as a southern route out of the Newcastle/Gateshead conurbation. I don't use that many buses so can't... More
