They look nice across the beach, sometimes you even think is someone real in the sand. The funniest part is on holidays when people like to dress them up with Santa costumes and things like that. Is a nice relaxing view at crosby beach.

So pleased we made the effort to come here. The statues are truly amazing and make such a good talking point. Beach is accessible at low tide. Statues are visible as far as the eye can see. Close to they are rough and covered in sea deposits. Some are lying in the sand but all appear to face one way (out to sea). Would really recommend, if you are in the area, visit this amazing site.

This was not a first time visit for our family .
Always best to know times of tides before you go .
Great beach for a walk whatever the weather, today was great .
Visit promotes conversations and laughter and the feel good factor that you get from a great day out . Family of X 6 . Mum dad and x4 grown up all adult kids.
Well worth the effort . We travel up from Staffordshire.

Found parking on a road and joined the throngs of people on the promenade at high tide. Heads of the closest statues were barely visible but within an hour the closest statue was fully visible. Within another hour the tide had receded enough for the second row to be fully visible. Very thought provoking piece. A must see if you are in the North West

Went with a friend who is an artist and wanted to see it on his birthday. Was surprised at just how many / the length of beach for the statues. Really interesting seeing them (though didn’t see all, about half) and how some have worn away being more in the sea etc and fallen in storms. Luckily it was a beautiful sunny New Year’s Day which helped make it seem so beautiful.
Beach was mostly clean but frustrated to see some people had left Beer cans actually on one of the statues and whilst it’s funny the statues dressed up kind of took away the art element and I’m sure weren’t what Anthony Gormley had intended!

Glad we went early as it got busy on the beach!
Also good that parking is free and so is he exhibit really!!
