Antony Gormley's Another Place, Crosby
(4.6/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Antony Gormley's Another Place provides a profound setting for modern sculptures. The installation features 100 cast-iron figures each 189 cm (74 in) tall and weighing about 650 kg (1,400 lb), spread out over an area of beach 3.2 km (2 mi) long. It evokes both the sadness of leaving and the hopeful expectation associated with emigration. All of the sculptures resemble the artist who created them, Antony Gormley. They stand facing the water, stretching nearly 1 km (.63 mi) out to sea. Time your visit with the tide schedule; high tide submerges many of the sculptures and might not be the best time for a viewing. Sunset is ideal so long as the tide isn't fully in. Use our Crosby vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Antony Gormley's Another Place and other attractions in Crosby.

  • Truly amazing. Go at high tide and low tide for very different experiences. The different figures are just fascinating and it is had to do this place justice. 
  • Crosby Beach is a "must do once in your life" kind of place the Iron Men are amazing and the beach is as a lovely a walk you could want Parking is good 
  • At first you don't realise there are so many - 100 - but then your eyes become accustomed to the fact that some 'statues' are people - when they move! The place grew on me as I walked and looked out t...  more »
