Loved the whole impact of this - the setting is perfect, the men so strong but at the mercy of the elements. And it’s accessible art!

Another Place by Antony Gormley is Definitely one of our favourite places. This magnificent meeting of art and sea is located on the Crosby coastline on the outskirts of Liverpool. The work comprises of 100 cast iron figures and embraces an area of 3 square...More

I love walking on the beach with the iron men. So picturesque especially at sunset or sunrise. Very peaceful.

We were visiting Liverpool so couldn’t miss the opportunity to see these sculptures. It is a lovely walk onto the beach and then you see them! 100 figures looking out to sea. We watched as they were covered by water and it was not long...More

We went when the tide was nearly out, the best time I think. The day was sunny and bright and visibility was excellent. We all found it not only visually exciting, but very moving. There was also an excellent catering van on the promenade, so...More

A cool autumn evening, sun setting, tide out. Wow what a beautiful experience. Such a vast space and so many statues to see. This is truly a work of art and the area is beautifully kept. Well done to the local residents and people that...More

It was drizzling and overcast when we went, but that added to the atmosphere - the figures morphing with the sea and the sky. Excellent. And along the path Mallow, Horseradish and Sea Holly Well worth a visit

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

I live here so know that when the tide is in there still is sand. It’s much better to come though when the tide is out as you get to see many more of the Iron Men. If you’ve never been here, your in for a real treat.

You can get a train from Liverpool central to Blundell sands, and its then 1 10-15 min walk to the beach You can catch the 53 from Queens Sq bus station and get off at Mersey road @ Waterloo (5 Min walk )
