The Angel of the North is Britain's largest and most impressive sculpture. It stands near the A1 in Gateshead in the North East of England, marking the southerly entry to Tyneside. It towers twenty metres over its hilltop landscape and has a wingspan of fifty four metres. Commissioned by Gateshead Council, the angel was created by internationally renowned sculptor, Antony Gormley. The sculture was made from two hundred tonnes of steel and has attracted world-wide attention since it was assembled on site in February 1998.
It is the most recent addition to Gateshead Council's public art programme which now includes over thirty noted works of art. Other attractions in Gateshead for art lovers include the award-winning Riverside Sculture Park on the River Tyne, the Marking the Ways Sculpture Trail in the Great North Forest and the Shipley Art Gallery near the town centre. Nearby attractions include the National Trust's historic Gibside Estate, three hundred acres of beautiful countryside at Derwent Walk Country Park, the Victorian splendour of Saltwell Park, Beamish Museum in County Durham and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre in Washington.
