Fodor's Review

South of Newcastle, near the junction of A1 and A1(M) at Gateshead, stands England's largest—and one of its most popular—sculptures, the Angel of the North. Created by Antony Gormley in 1998, the rust-color steel sculpture is a sturdy, abstract human figure with airplane-like wings rather than arms. It stands 65 feet tall and has a horizontal wingspan of 175 feet. There's parking nearby, signposted on A167.
