The artist, Anthony Gormely casted about 100 of his own body casts. They are placed randomly on the beach. However do time your visit for when the tide is out and it’s best you wear wellington boots due to slippery sand and walking around rock...More

This is a strange and magnetic experience during which you find yourself being drawn to visit as many of the statues as the tide and time will allow, even the weather on the day of our visit did not detract from the strange aurora of...More

The iron men all looking out to sea. Atmospheric and almost creepy, especially as the nearest one was sinking up to his knees.

This was my first visit and I will definitely be back. Very atmospheric and worth visiting. Going st low tide enables you to get up close and they are much larger than they appear. We stayed long enough to see them disappear into the sea...More

What can you say, even if you don't like Gormley (we most certainly do) this has to be seen, so cool and so evocative!

I see a lot of reviewers say ‘come at low tide’ and that certainly means you get to walk on the flat sand banks on which the statues stand. Yet for me the magic lies in the statues emerging from or submerging into the water,...More

Very atmospheric. Definitely worth visiting. If it’s high tide, don’t go to the signposted car park but head to the leisure centre. At this end of the beach several statues are at or above the high water mark.

We stayed close by, allowing us the opportunity to see them several times over a few days. The longer you spend with them, the greater effect they have on you and it is a testament to their power that they were loved by all our...More

I live here so know that when the tide is in there still is sand. It’s much better to come though when the tide is out as you get to see many more of the Iron Men. If you’ve never been here, your in for a real treat.

You can get a train from Liverpool central to Blundell sands, and its then 1 10-15 min walk to the beach You can catch the 53 from Queens Sq bus station and get off at Mersey road @ Waterloo (5 Min walk )
