Overview

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.

As we stood on Crosby beach with the multitude of steel figures staring out toward the Irish sea and beyond,I felt a strange sense of well being. We found it a beautiful piece and one which should be visited by all who travel to Liverpool.

The artist has placed numerous identical steel statues here, set with poles deep into the beach-sand. The statues, now well-rusting, are nudes, presumably of the artist; he has – how do we put this politely – flattered himself in some respects. The statues extend for...More

As we were in the area, we drove to see the statues thinking that the tide would be low enough. We saw a few heads and some bodies and you could see just from those, how great a display they would be. I believe there...More

Visited on a very cold March day when the beach was relatively deserted - loved the feeling of desolation with the statues for company

This is a brilliant place to take the kids, have a walk, have a laugh and take in some dramatic scenery.

Visited a few times a while ago but first visit for my husband. Lots more barnacles on the men now and 1 tipped over. Still quite eerie really but brilliant sculptures. Check the tides though because you may not see them in their entirety!!

Whatever time of year you visit there is no doubt this is a special place. The sculptures add a surreal look to the unique scene and are a must see whatever the time or tide. The sand dunes and grasses lend a wild backdrop and...More

Very thought provoking watching individual figures slowly emerging from the water as the tide goes out. Close up they show the effect of being submerged with each new tide, but from a distance they are as impressive both individually and collectively. 100 figures line the...More

It's been 20+ years since my last visit to Crosby beach. The Iron Men weren't here then. I was looking forward to see them, not just seeing the photos of them. I saw one of men in Stavanger some years ago, there it was looking...More

Yes you do have to pay to park but not a lot and it is worth it to see the figures on the beach.
