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.

Went to the beach as tide was going out so could see the men "emerge" from the water but it did not give me the "buzz" i thought it would. Ok it was worth going to see them and yes they are slightly different depending on how far out there as the ones further out are more affected by the... More

Completely ruined a perfect beach scenery. Has no purpose or meaning and a wasted trip even the seagulls don't like them by the way they crap on them. Don't bother visiting

We arrived at high tide so had the pleasure of seeing the statues emerge from the retreating waves. This is a real spectacle , particularly when the tide is out and the whole array of figures are exposed. A wonderful sight coupled with a lovely walk on unspoilt beach. Been meaning to go for years, so glad we did.

READ :D - the area itself guys is fantastic and can go again and again and again! The statues themselves though are great to go and see and are something different, but once you have seen them there is nothing really new the second time round, it is as it says on the tin........an iron man! Fun to go and... More

We visited the beach on a cold and windy day and had a great time playing in the water and building sand castles with my granddaughter and wife . The beach was almost empty and we had a wonderful time playing and running up and down to the water .

Tide was in when we got there, but we could see one head sticking out if the water. Looked like someone was trying to drown themselves. Quite eerie. We went back an hour late and could see 3 figures. Our original one was paddling by this time - a much happier concept than our first look. Well worth a visit... More

This is a great attraction. Slightly eerie and mystical. A great walk along a sand beach. The dogs just loved it. For those less mobile, it is a long but level hike to the beach and then miles of sand and statues to discover.

On a bright sunny day with high tide there is nothing to see. If you get a sea fog with a high tide and it isn't raining, you get a spooky back drop. You see the silhouettes of these figures reveal themselves as the tide recedes and it can be a little unnerving. Almost like something from Dr. Who with... More

Makes a difference to going to look at things in museums good to take the kids to count the numbers on the statues
