Must go and see when heading into the north! Great for pics but only a 10 minute thing.

The Angel of the North facts

Angel Side View
The Angel of the North
Here's some amazing facts about the Angel of the North.

It is believed to be the largest angel sculpture in the world
It is one of the most viewed pieces of art in the world - seen by more than one person every second, 90,000 every day or 33 million every year
It is one of the most famous artworks in the region - almost two thirds of people in the North East had already heard of the Angel of the North before it was built
Its 54 metre (175 foot) wingspan is bigger than a Boeing 757 or 767 jet and almost the same as a Jumbo jet
It is 20 metres (65 feet) high - the height of a five storey building or four double decker buses
It weighs 200 tonnes - the body 100 tonnes and the wings 50 tonnes each
There is enough steel in it to make 16 double decker buses or four Chieftain tanks
It will last for more than 100 years
It will withstand winds of more than 100 miles per hour
Below the sculpture, massive concrete piles 20 metres deep will anchor it to the solid rock beneath
It is made of weather resistant Cor-ten steel, containing a small amount of copper, which forms a patina on the surface that mellows with age
Huge sections of the Angel - up to six metres wide and 25 metres long - were transported to the site by lorry with a police escort
The total cost of The Angel of the North was £800,000
There is unique species of daffodil named the Angel of the North due to its orange, rusty hue and lofty height. The Angel of the North daffodil has been verified and registered with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS)

It was definitely worth the trip out here to see this cool work of art up close and snap a few photos. I appreciated the fresh air after being stuck in meetings.

If you don't want to trek there, you get a good view from the train (it's on the right as you approach Newcastle from the south)

It's out of the way and a long bus ride away from Newcastle, but so so so worth it. Anthony Gormley is one of my favourite artists and this is just a gorgeous statue.

Smaller than you imagine, it's still a thing of beauty. If you're in the north east, definitely worth a visit.
