Escape the noise and bustle of Liverpool and head to Crosby beach. Spanning three miles from the Port of Liverpool to the River Alt, this is a beach with a difference.
Crosby Beach Statues
Crosby Beach has more than a few surprises up its sleeve – 100 in fact. The famous Crosby Beach Statues are cast-iron, life-size figures stretching three kilometres along the shore, and almost one kilometre out to sea. They are the creation of ‘Angel of the North’ artist Anthony Gormley. placed here as part of a permanent art exhibition entitled ‘Another Place'.
These thought-provoking sculptures can only be viewed when the tide is out, so check out the tidal times before you go. Then grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the spectacle as the men on the beach miraculously appear from the sea.
Aside from the art installation there are plenty of other reasons to visit Crosby Beach. There’s also a play area, refreshment vans, sand dunes and a place for picnicking. Enjoy a relaxing stroll along the coastal paths, take in stunning estuary views and watch the big ships come and go.
