Overview

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.

We walked on Crosby beach several times over Christmas - lovely beach and Another Place really added to the experience. We easily found free parking so no need to pay high parking charges at the official brown-signed car park.

This is a great day out. The beach here is lovely all the way up to past Southport, but this is one of the many places were you can just stop and stare at the iron men, the passing ships, the passing people or whatever....More

Walk along Crosby sands at low tide and contemplate the existence of 100 iron men. An experience not to be missed - sculptures staring steadfastly out to sea, over shifting sands became a courageous civic statement (£194,000!) when a permanent location was controversial for Another...More

I love this place it’s so different! 100 cast iron figures sunk into the sand along 2 miles of Crosby beach, all cast from the artists own body ( Antony Gormley who did the angel of the north at Gateshead) and submerged to differing degrees...More

On a raw windy December day, with the tide coming in it was good to see the statues, all identical, all based on the sculptor Anthony Gormley ( Angel of the North ) standing, looking out to sea. Some on dry beach others in the...More

Wonderful story of how the sculptures arrived at Crosby. Very atmospheric walking around them. Certainly worth a visit. Recommended best time to visit is low tide at sunset.......

Yes you do have to pay to park but not a lot and it is worth it to see the figures on the beach.
