Two top attractions in Gateshead stand out as must visits on any tour of the North East. The iconic 'Angel of the North' statue by Antony Gormley, visible from and easily accessed off the A1, is a top 10 British landmark. Nothing prepares you for the huge scale of this giant landmark which you can get right up close to and view from any angle - parking is adjacent and entry is free! The site of the 'Angel of the North' is on what was the old Team Colliery and pit baths, but mining has taken place on this site right back to the 1500s.
