The angel was really nice to look at. Very good bus links to and from Gateshead. The angel was very nice.

My new bride had this on her “bucket list” of places to see and we were not disappointed. The installation is beautiful and breathtaking in size.

Firstly it is FREE to visit and there is ample FREE parking

Despite us thinking there was going to be quite a hike involved, it turns out the car park is basically at the same level, with easy slope walkways to the sculpture. Making it easily accessible to all including wheelchair users.

Definitely a must. You cannot go to the North East and not stop and see the Angel of the North!
There is a really informative information sign telling you about it and it's just not the same unless you stop and see it up close so don't just drive by, I'd recommend stopping for a few minutes, it's not very far off the main road.

Small free car park - sometimes a mobile coffee van but no fixed refreshments or amenities.

Staying nearby so made the effort to see it up close rather than on the motorway. It's impressive for sure, just a shame the usual carving and graffiti is around the base

It's just stunning. The word "awesome" is so overused but it fits this sculpture beautifully. I heartily recommend it as a "must-see" tourist attraction.

Don't get me wrong, she's an amazing piece of art but the site had rubbish and beer/wine bottles everywhere. She seems to be just dumped at the side of the motorway, if only she was placed up a small hill.

You cannot visit this area without stopping off to take a look. It is quite random with nothing else around other than a free car park which is great and a coffee van.

A must see when in Newcastle. I thought it would be underwhelming but actually thought it was quite impressive. Easy to get to on the bus.

This statue was something I had always wanted to see close up having passed it several times on the motorway.
I was so pleased I did.
Free parking close by which was great.
Don't pass it, take a closer look.

Took the bus from Newcastle City Centre, so easy to get to. Surprised at how close it was to the roads, had imagined it a bit further out for some reason. Very impressive sculpture, very iconic. Shame people think it’s funny to put LOL stickers on there..!
