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.

Arrived at 5am and still pitch black! Luckily we knew the tide was out and we had brought torches with us! We were aware that we couldn't go more than 50m from shore because of soft sands. Our dog was scared of the statues when he found one- he thought it was a person that wasn't moving. We stayed and... More

Went for a lovely stroll along Crosby beach on Christmas Day 2016 where the statues 'Another Place' are located. Such a peaceful atmosphere, great for all ages. Took these pics on my Samsung S6 edge mobile.

What a lovely place to visit. It was nice and quiet when we visited but there were still a food van to have a coffee from. The beach was so very flat and easy to walk on and the art installations are awe inspiring. They are so interesting. 🕴🕴

I have just returned from a visit to Crosby beach to see Anthony Gormleys another place. IT's AMAZING ❗❗ if you are anywhere near the North East it's a must see, in fact if you're nowhere near the area still go ! 100 statues covered in barnacles, as a potter this is the kind of texture that I strive to...

A great venue not to be missed. Difficult to find but GPS helps. It is actually right by Crosby leisure centre. It was very eerie to see the statues as they are so life like and true to size being moulded in the form of Anthony Gormley. It is a very beautiful location. Wrap up warm when visiting, though, as...

I tend to like large scale public art and I am particularly attracted to this. Having been two or three time over the years it is good to see how the figures mature and the weathering differs on them according to where they are on the beach or in the water. Absolutely fascinating.

Whilst the 'statues' remain in the same locations on the beach it is interesting to compare how being exposed to the elements over a period of time keeps changing their appearance over time - worth going back to if its a few years since you saw them

Difficult to find but worth the trip. Parked on seafront and walked over dunes. Very interesting to see figures in sea and on beach.

These statues bring a strange mood to the beach. The sunset is lovely, of course(Ask the Kinks!) ,and the statues add to it. Different every time the light changes.
