Owner description: 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. If it's good weather it's a good place for a level walk for as far as you want and if it's poor weather you can sit in the car and see it all.

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 Place (naked figures - risk to water sports - the danger of fast rising tides...). Angel of the North, eat your heart out!

This had been on our list of things to visit for ages. It is really quite odd to see at low tide when there is no one else on the beach: seeing all the figures spread across the beach as far as the eye can see. Also, as the tide goes out to see the figures start to be revealed is weird! Good car parking at both ends of the beach too.
