“Very Atmospheric”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I love it. Been there several times, taking dogs for a walk with a friend who lives nearby. Very basic and St Helens' responsible authorities need to do more to protect it from vandalism.
The statue to me captures the real essence of thinking and pensiveness.

“More bins please!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Drove out to the “Big Head”, parked in the free car park opposite and walked up the hill with the dog.

Very pleasant walk, not too steep, (lots of seats and viewing points on the way up),up to the statue on the top. Very impressive up close. Worth a visit and a stroll.

The only negative is there are no bins anywhere that we could spot on the way up or down , so quite a bit of of litter and nowhere for responsible dog owners to put bagged poop. Come on St Helens council, sort it out. Otherwise good.

“Dream, with your eyes open”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stopped here on the way back from visiting other attractions in Liverpool. The dream is clearly visible from the motorway and is easy to get to. There is a small signposted free car park. The 20m statue stands atop a small hill in an area that used to be part of an old colliery site. The walk to the dream is a gentle stroll that slowly climbs up a well maintained path. This is a pleasant stroll that is worth a stop to view up close.

“The dream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I've been for a walk up to the dream on a number of occasions and on a nice day it's well worth a stroll up to it. Nice views when you get there and really peaceful.

“Bit disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

It's pretty easy to find, although the car park which is signposted is small and the area looks very run down. The area leading up to the place is very marshy and paths are flooded in places so have good footwear. The place one you arrive looks very impressive and on a clear day has great views. Just think it needs more investment
