About 6 miles (9.5km) north of central Liverpool is Crosby Beach. Here you’ll find the striking public artwork Another Place, by world-famous British artist Antony Gormley.

The work consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread over 2 miles (3km) of lovely coastline. They reach approximately 0.6 miles (1km) out to sea, being increasingly submerged and revealed as the tide comes in and goes out. Each figure weighs 650kg (0.7 ton) and is made from casts of the artist’s own body. To see them all together is an impressive sight.

The initial plan was for the work to keep moving to different sites (it has already lived in Germany, Norway and Belgium), but upon arriving here it was quickly agreed that the iron men had found their true home.

See them for yourself in Crosby, 20 minutes by train from Liverpool Central, itself just over 2 hours from London by rail.
