Liverpool is not only famous for the Beatles. It is also near by the beautiful Crosby Beach which is not only a stunning sandy beach, but it is also know for Another Place, the spectacular, if rather creepy sculptures by Antony Gormley. Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the shore and stretching almost one kilometre out to sea and these bleak statues that look like zombies walking out to sea, is well worth the trip as you can see from the photo above.

However, this beach comes with a warning. Crosby beach is a non-bathing beach with areas of soft sand and mud and a risk of changing tides. There have been many cases of locals sinking up to their waist in these sinking sands. Unless you have a death wish, you should stay within 50 metres of the promenade at all tides and absolutely not attempt to walk out to the furthest figures of “Another Place”.
