4. Crosby Beach



Open at all times!  It depends on how much you as an individual wants to see!  However, you may not want to go when the tide is in and you can see nothing.  Check out tide times HERE.  If the tide is 7m you can see most statues and at 4m you can see them all.

  • Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ – a series of statues facing out to see that get immersed in the sea as the tide comes in and then re-emerge as the tide is heading out.
