Iron Men are waiting to welcome you to Another Place

As part of English Tourism Week 2018, Sefton Council is celebrating some of the very best attractions, sights and tourism hotspots which bring thousands of people to our beautiful borough each year.

One of the major attractions along Sefton’s beautiful 22 miles of coastline and the internationally renowned Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ in Crosby.

At least some of us are enjoying the windy weather! #MySefton #Gormley #IronMen #Statue #AnotherPlace

100 spectacular cast-iron, life-size figures by Anthony Gormley spread across three miles of the foreshore and stretch almost one kilometre out to sea.

The Another Place figures are made from casts of the artist’s own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.

Having previously been seen in Cuxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium, ‘Another Place’ is now a permanent feature along Crosby beach for a number of years.

The foreshore is easy to reach by public transport via three railway stations served by Merseyrail – Waterloo, Blundellsands and Crosby or Hall Road – and a range of bus services. Ring the Merseytravel Traveline for more information on 0871 200 22 33.

Taking place in spring each year, English Tourism Week campaigns to raise the profile of the industry and celebrate the value and quality of tourism in England.
