Crosby and Waterloo

North West

The seaside towns of Crosby and Waterloo in north Merseyside are home to ‘Another Place’ - 100 ‘Iron Men’ sculptures by internationally acclaimed artist Sir Antony Gormley.

Since the artwork’s launch in 2005, the two-mile stretch of sandy coastline - dubbed ‘Britain’s biggest art gallery’ - has attracted millions of visitors, bringing a new cultural identity to the area.

Crosby and Waterloo Coastal Community Team is a partnership between Sefton Council, local traders, community and other groups, working to deliver a co-ordinated approach to promote the area's 'Iron Men Coast.’

Our aim is to further boost visitor numbers all year round and maximise the quality of their experience by guiding people on a safe, exciting, inspiring journey to and from the Iron Men.

In addition to ‘Another Place’ we are promoting lesser known coastal heritage and wildlife assets, along with cafes, craft shops, pubs, restaurants, etc, as well as leisure and entertainment facilities - all within the immediate Crosby and Waterloo coastal area.
