My wife and I have been here before but this is the first time we have found the tide to be very low. ( I recommend the 'Uk Tides' app). It was a beautifully sunny day with a cold wind from the SE. Not a...More

As a “local” Crosby Beach in my view provides a different experience dependent upon time of day, the weather, the state of the tide and the number of visitors. The sunsets that can be enjoyed on a summer’s evening are quite stunning. The promenade at...More

Well worth the visit as nice walk along the beach, and totally free. Very unusual pieces. Some are covered in natural dirt, others paint. Sturdy pieces, wearing well. Fascinating art work -bit creepy and bit of fun.

We stood on the beach and watched as the figures vanished from sight into the sea. Nice walk. Gormley's works are amazing.

We came here on a cold damp December morning and the light wasn’t great but certainly added to the spectacle. A marvellous installation.

A spectacle worth seeing. Surprised by the size and the area covered but this only added to the impact. Be sure to go at low tide !

We went to Crosby to see the Iron Men. The concept is very impressive, with all the men looking out to sea. The exhibition has been there for a number of years and, whilst they are showing signs of age being covered in barnacles, this...More

I visited last week and was there about 11 and the tide was along way out. In my opinion perfect for seeing the statues. Hope this helps

Unsure on the price, but no more that £5 for a return I would imagine. If you travel after 9:30am I think train prices are cheaper. It takes 20mins on the train from southport to Blundellsands and Crosby station. The titanic... More

Check the low tide times for that date. You won’t be able to visit all the statues as you’ll be too far out to sea plus you need to consider that areas of unstable sand exist and the advancing tides too. But you can... More
