Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North is the UK’s most famous piece of public art.
Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North first spread its wings in February 1998 and has been welcoming visitors to NewcastleGateshead for more than 15 years.
At 54m wide and 20m high, (taller than four double decker buses and with a wingspan as big as a jumbo jet!) the Angel of the North is believed to be the largest angel sculpture in the world.
This awe-inspiring piece of public art is visited by 150,000 people a year and is one of the most famous sculptures in the UK. The Angel of the North is a must-see on a visit to NewcastleGateshead.
