To get the full benefit of seeing the Angel of the North it is essential to get out of your car and walk up to the base of the structure. It is really huge when you are looking up at it.

Sitting high on a hill , this huge metal structure is very different to anything Ivé seen but looks more like an Aeroplane than an Angel. Part of a tour we did and happy to have seen it.

We passed it on the way to Scotland but made a point of stopping on the return journey to have a close look. It is huge! Very impressive and well worth a visit.

Being sited on a hill added to the majestic size of the structure. Well worth taking the short detour off the motorway.

The sculpture is designed to capture our imaginations so it's not identifiable as male or female, you see the form as you want to see it whether that's male or female. Either way the angel is stunning and you will enjoy a... More
