Angel of the North
The Angel of the North is one of the North East's most iconic landmarks. Since spreading its wings in February 1998 Antony Gormley's masterpiece has become one of the most talked about pieces of public art ever produced.
Rising 20 metres from the earth near the A1 in Gateshead, the Angel dominates the skyline, dwarfing all those who come to see it. Made from 200 tonnes of steel, it has a wingspan of 54 metres. Getting up close and personal with the Angel is an experience you'll never forget.
