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.

We had a great time at Crosby Beach - the lack of shopping facilities turned out to be a great boon as it forced our seventeen year olds to spend a day playing - football, frisbee, rounders, burying each other in the sand and a...More

100% worth visiting this unique artwork. We parked at Hall Road West (£1 for 2 hours). There are toilets and an ice cream van. You can then walk for a couple of miles along promenade. Make sure you go when low tides, but be careful...More

This installation is thought provoking. These statues that stare vacantly out to sea, motionless, are intriguing and a beautiful piece of art that is a must see for anyone visiting the area.

What a place, what a thing to see. It was great having heard so much about these statues to finally see them “in the flesh”. There is a charge for parking but £1 for 2 hours cannot be complained about. The statues themselves are spread...More

We have visited this a number of times since first installed. I am so glad it wasn't moved elsewhere as originally planned as this is a superb setting for the many figures gazing out across the Atlantic Ocean. Anthony is a wonderful person and a...More

100 identical bronze statues, all looking out to sea, spread out over the length of beautiful Crosby beach, . It's rather disconcerting watching as most of them, at differing times, disappear under the waves as the tide comes in.
